Maze House is nestled in rich volcanic agricultural country just 10 minutes from Daylesford. It has a 27-year-old hedge maze set in a five-acre country carnival garden. It’s loads of outdoor fun!

  • Return Bowling – a humorous take on ten pin bowling 
  • The popular Knock ‘Em Down target practise game (with tennis balls not bullets)
  • The Amazing Buzz Test – a steady hand is required not to cause an eruption!
  • Wind-Up Horse Racing Game – get behind Australia’s most famous race horses
  • Spin the Horoscope Wheel to find your perfect mate!

Garden lovers will enjoy strolling through the rambling property which boasts orchards, a vegetable patch, flower cutting garden, firewood lot, perennial borders and shady areas for relaxing. Indigenous native trees, shrubs and grasses are massed around the winter creek and in patches throughout the property.

Maze House has a retro Milk Bar that sells great coffee, milkshakes, ice creams and homemade snacks.
