The Hedgend Maze

image to pin to pinterest for hedgend maze healesville

The Hedgend Maze and the drive through the surrounding countryside is another one of my top suggestions for a great family outing. Situated on the outskirts of the beautiful, quaint township of Healesville.

There are all sorts of different things to do there to create a totally fun filled family daytrip.

A beautiful 20 acres of stimulating, fun filled activities for all ages. The Hedge Maze has over 1200m of winding pathways. 

Fun filled ACTIVITIES for all ages. Hedgend offers a creative environment that stimulates a fun personal journey for everybody. If you enjoy being active, run through our mazes and play unlimited Minigolf and Frisbee Golf.

If you enjoy visual brainteasers, you'll love the Rainbow Maze and Giant Eyespys. Analyse and solve the cryptic secret message inside the Famous Hedge Maze, or perhaps you prefer to surround yourself in nature, you'll ENJOY our magnificent panoramic views of the gorgeous Yarra Valley.

In the Giant Maze, the main attraction,  there are special clues hidden throughout the tunnels of Cyprus hedge that will help you to solve the puzzle. You have to keep your eyes open though as you wander around. The clues are placed everywhere, some in places you may not think to look in. Read the instructions thoroughly because if you miss a clue you won't be able to solve the puzzle.

Finding your way out of the maze is relatively easy if you follow the right hand rule.

When this photo was taken it was at the height of the drought that had hit Victoria in 2009.

The mountain range to the right had been hit by the terrifying fires that had swept through the valley.

Luckily the hedges at Hedgend had only been scorched.

Mazes, Ancient & Modern

Over the last decade, mazes have been making the newspaper headlines and there has been a worldwide explosion in their construction. Not only in the form of traditional turf mazes of medieval times and hedge mazes, but modern mazes made in a wide variety of new materials including bricks, mirrors and water jets.

Even enormous maize mazes which are cut out of fields of growing corn and which last for a single summer season. This book traces the history of the maze in all its forms and uses a mixture of photographs and drawings to offer a fascinating insight into them.
