Become A SkyHigh Maze Master

You are here: Home | Melbourne Maze Fun | SkyHigh Maze

Solving the Maze puzzle was my very first introduction to the serious world of maze mastery.

Situated on top of Mount Dandenong, east of Melbourne, the Hedge Maze has been built to thrill all age groups.

I managed to get myself lost several times however I finally managed to work my way through the hedges and out the other side.

How Do You Get There?

You can reach the Maze from several different directions.

The southern route by car:

Follow the Burwood Highway, pass through Upper Ferntree Gully and drive under the railway bridge.

Turn left and travel up the mountain towards Sassafras and just follow the road signs.

The northern route by car:

Follow the Mount Dandenong Road through to Canterbury road, turn left and continue to the next round-a-bout at Montrose.

Turn right and continue up the mountain, past The Handorf Chocolate Coffee Shop.

Follow the road signs all the way to the top of the mountain.

If you would like a more detailed road-planner then visit my Google Map above, load your details in and follow the directions.

Once you have set your journey up, print out the route planner...too easy.

You enter the maze from the quaint little Coffee Shop.

Note that after you have mastered the maze you can enjoy a sumptuous selection of locally made cakes and a hot beverage.

You are handed a Maze Master card and sent off through the many twists and turns that make up the SkyHigh Maze.

There are Stations along the way where you stamp your card.

The idea is to complete the card and become another great...

Maze Master.

There are beautiful statues scattered throughout the hedge maze.

Also butterflies, fairies and illusions can be found around every corner.

The Maze is planted out using Lilly Pilly.

There are various arbors throughout the maze that support the climbers, examples of these being...

  • The climbing Rose...Pierre de Ronsard
  • Evergreen deciduous Clematis
  • Wisteria
  • Native Wonga Vine

The perfume during the flowering months is exquisite.

The quaint maze is part of the English Garden that has been planted out up here on top of Melbourne.

There are meandering gravel paths and several wooden arch bridges that cross over little man-made bubbling streams.

Great car parking facilities, disabled access, barbecues and picnic areas makes this a favorite family destination.
