Featuring three hedge mazes, two giant tube slides, 20 themed gardens, an outdoor sculpture park and an indoor 3D maze, this impressive adventure park has something for everyone.Right from the moment you pass through the hedged arch, you will be transported into a world of enchantment and fun on a grand scale. The stunning gardens feature excellent examples of relief topiary and contemporary garden design. The traditional hedge maze has a centre Japanese Garden and the labyrinth Maze features a giant topiary of a Loch Ness Dragon. The four rooms of the Children's Maze delight both the young and the young at heart.OverviewThe Enchanted Maze is also the home of Australia's only Tube Slide Rides. The giant twisting slopes use inflatable tubes to launch, slide and ride adventurers down the turns of an artificial ski run. This is a safe and exhilarating activity for all ages. « less

Had a great day out here with our 3 year old. There are lots of different mazes within the grounds, which I didn't realise. There's the traditional hedge maze, but also a children's maze with a different themed play area around each corner, a spring maze, a spooky maze (which we didn't go in), a paving maze and others.

We came as a family on fathers' day. We have been to other ropes courses in Australia and this one is certainly suitable for the whole family. We did the Grand Course and all of us, from young teen to mid-50s, managed to complete it all in just over the two hours allocated. This was about the right level for... More

We're so glad that you and your family decided to 'share the love' this Fathers Day. What a ripper day it was with sunny skies and mild temperatures. It was perfect weather for Tree Surfing. Thanks for your lovely feedback regarding the Tree Surfing levels and your comments about our Adventure Park's new direction. We've spent a lot of time... More

We spent a beautiful spring day at the Gardens. We were surprised and entertained with everything that was on offer. Our kids are 5 & 8 and loved the tubing and obstacle course. Next time we will attempt the tree top walk... It looks fantastic! The cafe wasn't great so definitely pack a picnic and enjoy the garden and lake... More

Hi Rachel, Thanks for taking the time to review the Enchanted Adventure Gardens. Tree Surfing certainly would be a hit with your kids as the Nippers Course is perfect for school aged children. Just remember to book ahead if you visit at peak times or during the school holidays. More

The Enchanted Maze Garden was the best day's outing that we can remember. And that was the consensus of a group of us ranging from 5 years old to 68 years old. We chose a wonderfully sunny winter's day, packed our picnic lunch, and arrived at about 11am. The numerous intriguing and absorbing mazes, the giant tube slides, the Tree... More

Thanks Dragon Melbourne - we do try to provide BEST value for money, so it was wonderful to read your review and hear that we had succeeded in this mission. And coming from such an experienced reviewer we couldn't have been happier. Keep on enjoying that spring sunshine! More

This is a beautiful place to visit on a sunny day . I agree with other reviewers that it isn't cheap but personally think it's worth the money as there is certainly enough to do for several hours. We have two young grandchildren aged 5 and 7 who love the tree surfing and I disagree that this is dangerous. The... More

Kids had a ball, despite the rain they went mad on the nippers tree surfing, sadly no tube riding because of the weather. We are local so Annual Passes are on the horizon, I reckon I will be back with the mini Tarzans!!

We had a fantastic day at the maze. The Tree Surfing was brilliant fun, even though I'm terrified of heights. It certainly gives the thrill factor but you do feel completely safe because you're locked on at all times. My kids aged 9 & 7 loved it and of course had no fear. It took just over 2 hours to...

So much to do, staff excellent and handled the smaller kids really well, explaining why they couldn't go on the tree walk! Older kids loved all the adventures

I'm surprised occ health and safety passed this place. The grand tree surfing has 5 different courses, and as a novice I felt that not having an opt out at every stage is ridiculous and dangerous. If someone chooses to not go any further, everyone behind you has to go back to the beginning or finish that course. On level... More

Hi Tracey S, Thank you for your comments. Were certainly very concerned that you perceived our Tree Surfing course as dangerous and that you felt unnerved enough to write this review. Just to put yours and other readers minds at rest, our course has been designed and constructed with user safety as the highest priority. It has passed the strictest... More
