We thoroughly enjoyed all activities available at the enchanted adventure gardens. The treetop activity was definitely my favourite, it present a challenge which led to a feeling of accomplishment all while having fabulous fun. The zip line across the gardens was spectacular! It gave a beautiful sight of everything with a rush of adventure while doing it - highly recommend. The tube slides were also great fun and worth a ride! All the maxes and puzzles made for a great day with smiles all around. The tree top walking track was a nice way to see the view in a calm atmosphere. This place is a must visit if you are in the area! The cafe was also a beautiful place to grab some lunch and drinks while enjoying the gardens. Staff were all friendly and super helpful! Can’t wait to come back and visit one day!

Enchanted Adventure Garden, 55 Purves Road, Arthurs Seat, VIC 3936 You’ll find the Enchanted Adventure Garden (Garden) at Arthurs Seat which, at 314 m, is the highest point on Mornington Peninsula. Before (or after) your time in the Garden take time to appreciate where you are … Arthurs Seat … an hour or so from Melbourne. Arthurs Seat? The country was once the haunt of Indigenous Australians and from long before the sea separated Tasmania from Victoria and submerged Port Phillip Bay, that is >60,000 years and counting. At the time of contact with the first Europeans, the coastal country was home to six clans of the Boowurrung First Peoples – estimated >300 people - living sedentary and nomadic seaboard lives based upon seasonal crops and marine resources. They called the place ‘Wonga’. The name ‘Arthurs Seat’ was borrowed from a similar looking hill outside Edinburgh, Scotland and named by the Scots mariner John Murray when exploring the bay in 1802 – the first recorded landing of a European in the bay (which he called ‘Port King’). Times moves on and the country waits for no man (or woman) - today Arthurs Seat is home to around 3,000 people (with 167,000 in the surrounding shire). Ribbon development along the bay exemplifies the delights of part-rural living for many Victorians and the importance of the entertainment/life-style industries/services/facilities that attract >1.6M tourists annually. This is where the Garden comes in - it was our second time there – see the first review from June 2019. We found things much the same this time round too – the pleasure of wandering, watching the kids learn, investigate, develop their skills and, crucially, enjoy physical activities that tend to take them out of their comfort zone – this thing about challenges/fear/value of a friendly adult on hand; all those things that come to bear when taking part. This is not your passive entertainment option – it’s you/them out there getting lost in a maze, balancing on spring-boards/climbing over nets on the Bush Scramble circuit and, crucially, a few metres off-the-ground on aerial walkways and flying foxes - landing on slopes heaped with bark. It was Labour Day w/e and we’d arrived early on the Monday to take advantage of the Garden before the crowds arrived – we had an hour in reality before the queues, crocodile groups and crowds took precedent. (That’s not a critique either – whether for those activities included in the general admission ticket or those for which you pay extra – people were moving through the activities relatively fast; if there were hitches they tended to be around the ‘kids/first-timers’ and their lack of familiarity with the safety harness/hitch/rails and, crucially, the apprehension that kicks in once they were a couple of metres off the ground – you could catch their bawling across the Garden at times.) Others – kids (of all ages) and adults too – were shouting with pleasure their achievement at making the circuit and ending with a flying fox that caught you in a high net or, equally, the exhilaration of travelling on the Zip Way across the Garden that enabled two people on parallel wires to fly above trees, lawns and lake (with high water fountain) at speed – shouting at those of us below, legs askew and kicking, and delight in every limb/sinew as they slewed up into the slope that brought them to a safe stop (and covered in bark). There was pleasure in the pleasure of watching others. Mid-morning and the place had become crowded – time to take a coffee and snack at the café next to the main entrance. Here’s where you lean out over the veranda rail to get a feel for the entire Garden from the terrace of the café. Located across a dip in the surrounding hills and covered with trees – lake at the lowest point beneath the tube slides; it was green, sheltered, plenty of shade. There are toilets in the café and beneath the veranda at ground level, and another one close to the tube slides. Six parallel slides catered for all levels of interest/confidence – five for kids/adults together/separate, and the sixth, more modest one, for those 5-12 year olds seeking independence for the first time or who like travelling side-by-side in tyre groups – can’t do this on the faster/longer rides. Seats alongside the kids-only slide ensure that Mum/Dad/Granma are clearly visible at all times (and able to help the less competent to clear the bottom of the slide quickly). All great fun. You can access the slides (and mazes, scrambles, themed gardens, board walk, etc.) with your general admission ticket, but not the more demanding/exciting tree surfing routes; the higher up the tree the more the restrictions/costs that apply. Small kids/beginners are typically a couple of metres off the ground on wooden/wire walkways and, equally, accompanied by Mum/Dad. You can sense their apprehension. Other similar-age kids … stature, height, etc. were literally streaking across the swaying wooden decks/footbridges. Everyone … is … linked … to … a … security… cable. There were EAG attendants at key entry/change-over points on the ground and in the trees. Costs for entry vary with your choice of activities – and they haven’t changed in 12 months: General admission - $30/adult & $20/child; add $10 for the Big Zip, $20 Nippers Tree Surfing, $30 Grand Tree Surfing and $40 Adventure Combo (i.e. everything). So, costs creep up for a family of big kids, but you can repeat rides/activities (within limits); and height and weight limitations apply, of course. You make your choices and pays your dues. And it’s not all one way either … we successfully reclaimed an Adult Nippers Tree Surfing charge when the second of our two kids refused to become further involved. She’ll be more confident next time - she said. In summary then … a great day out that comes highly recommended. We had a bright cloudy sky with a cold wind – and particularly enjoyed the shelter of the café and the pleasure of tagging along after the kids in the mazes – hanging back whilst they raced ahead into the dead-end avenues – this thing about watching the novelty of exploration and discovery first hand.

Three families attended with a view to spending an hour... and stayed for four hours. There is so much to do and keep children of all ages busy, entertained, active and excited. Lunchtime meant dragging them away from one or more of the activities they had 'discovered' when we arrived. Could have spent more time there as we did not experience everything. Still - that means there is a reason for another visit! Reasonably price for young families considering the amount of fun it delivers! Stunning grounds and new activities being built when we were there. One of the best 'children's parks' I have visited.

I was looking for something special to take my grandchildren to during the holidays. This was it. Reasonably priced for a fun filled day. Grandchildren aged 12, 11 and 7...2 girls and a boy. We did everything except the high trees area. (Sorry I am just a bit old to be involved in that activity). We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed eating on a grassed area. We also took our own water bottles. Highly recommend

The grounds are beautiful and there is plenty to do. Everything is spread out over a large area so it never felt like it was busy and you were not lining up for things. The only negative is maybe the tube slide could be fixed a bit. The hill to pull your tube up is very slippery and all the grippy mats are broken. A conveyer belt taking the tube up would be better.
