This 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.
Healesville Hedgend Entrance
The Giant Maze is the main attraction and hidden throughout the tunnels of Cyprus hedge there are special clues to solving the puzzle.
There is a Secret Message to reveal.
I will, however, give you a little tip.
The left or the right hand rule gets you out of the Maze. 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.
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.

Laser Strike is like paintball but without the pain and bruises.
Laser Strike is best described as an Army skirmish sport in a safe and exciting outdoor and indoor battlefield.
Realistic guns, sound effects and camouflage gear give players a real taste of the battlefield experience.
Grab the family or a group of friends and head on up to Healesville for a truly fun day out.
Try your hand at solving the Mural puzzle game.
This is a colorful, hand painted mural depicting all things Aussie and is situated under the Lookout Tower.
