Maze Gardens Madness 

You are here: Home | Maze Gardens

The beautiful State of Victoria boasts as having some of the most amazing and incredible, world acknowledged Maze gardens.

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.

You can find several mazes down on the coastal Mornington Peninsular. A drive down through this area is always a beautiful experience, with so much to see and do in along the way.

Other mazes you will find out into the country regions of Victoria. Each drive brings new experiences and revelations.

Victoria's countryside is so diverse. It depends which direction you go as to the landscape. Any direction is fun to explore.

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?
It's A Secret!

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.
