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.

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.

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.

Mazes can be constructed using many different materials, for example...

  • Brick walls
  • Hedges
  • Rooms
  • Turf
  • Corn stocks
  • Hay bales
  • Ribbons or rope
  • Crops of corn or maise
  • Pumpkins
  • Flowers Screens
  • Fencing materials
  • PlasticMirrors
  • And for a fun crowd pleaser, use actual people!

Mazes that are made using maise, corn or any seasonal crop can be built very large and their shape is usually changed each year as they are grown seasonally.

Mazes that are made using corn growing  can also appear in many different designs.

Some are created to tell stories to play out a theme.

Do You Know How To Solve A Maze Garden?

The Wall Flower Traversal Rule or more commonly known as The Right Hand Rule.

The Wall Flower Traverse Rule

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

Try the rule out on the print out maze above. Hug the right side and see where it takes you.
