Become A SkyHigh Maze Master

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

You will find this unique hedge maze, high up on top of Mount Dandenong.

This maze is sure to prove a fun one to solve and it is suitable for all ages to enjoy.

A great day trip from Melbourne for you and your family and is only just over an hours short drive from the city.

The maze is just one of the many fun things that you can do up there.

You can enter the maze from the quaint little Coffee Shop and once you have mastered the twists and turns, stop to enjoy a refreshing cool drink or a delicious deavonshire tea.

As you start your maze adventure you are handed your personal 'Maze Master' card. Now set off through the many twists and turns and try not to get lost. 

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

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

You will find beautiful statues scattered throughout the maze gardens.

And for a special treat there are butterflies, fairies and illusions that can be found around every corner.
