My beautiful State of Victoria boasts as having some of the most amazing and incredible world acknowledged Mazes.

All these magical places are well within a 2 hour drive from Melbourne and make for a great family day trip out into the countryside of Victoria.

Listed below are Mazes that I have visited with my Grandchildren.

We found that they were so much fun to solve that others within the state are now on the agenda to visit in the near future.

What Is A Maze?

A maze is a puzzle in the form of a complex branching of passages through which you must find a route through to the exit. They are made up of complex and confusing series of pathways and passages. Some that lead to dead ends and others that trick you and deceive.

There is an almost mystical and magical feeling when you wander through these passageways. The pathways and walls are usually fixed and rigid although sometimes the walls themselves are made from flimsy materials.

Do You Know How To Solve A Maze Garden?

The Wall Flower Traversal Rule or more commonly known as the Right Hand Rule is the easiest way to solve a maze garden, infact any type of maze.

The wall flower, the best known rule for getting through a maze is also known as either the left-handed or right-handed rule. The reason for this is that a maze's walls are simply connected together onto the maze's outer boundary.

Keeping one hand in contact with a wall you are guaranteed not to get lost and you will eventually find your way to the exit. Place your right hand on the wall as soon as you enter the maze.

On the picture above start at the red top arrow and hugging the right side move through the maze until you reach the end. You can print the image out if it makes it easier.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
