On a clear but cool winters day in the school holidays, we decided to pack a family picnic and head just south of Margaret River to Amaze’n. The main attraction of Amaze’n is a Giant hedge Maze which the website states “Giant Hedge Maze was planted in 1994. That’s 19 years… The main maze hedged with 2,000 Leighton’s Green plants has 1.5 km of pathways”.
The first time we visited the maze over two years ago I am not ashamed to say it took my mum myself and my husband with then two young kids and a baby in tow over an hour and a half to find our way out of the maze! The hedges are massive and it is very hard and confusing in the maze, indeed people were using GPS on their phone to try and find their way out!
This time I thought I would treat myself to a nice coffee and take a seat on one of the comfy lounges in the warm café whilst my husband and kids tried to find their way through the maze. Unfortunately for me, they took less than 20 minutes this time!!
It was not to matter as they went through the maze several times and there was plenty more to keep them amused and we ended up spending several hours at Amaze’n. We enjoyed a picnic in the grounds. The kids enjoyed the other mazes which included a left hand turn only maze, a colour stepping stone maze and a rose maze. In the grounds, they had bocce area, hopscotch, coits, giant noughts and crosses, lots of grass to run around and a childrens playground. In addition, they are currently building a mini golf course.
The café serves coffee and light meals as well as cakes and ice-creams. There are inside tables and lounges. Inside there are also puzzles and board games as well as a rug with toddler toys. There is a deck with tables to dine outside when warmer. There are also picnic tables and barbeques to use in the grass area. The toilets are clean and there are parent room and change facilities.
The only negative I would say is that if you are not intending on completing the maze and only want to use the grounds to eat your picnic with your family you still have to pay the full admission price. Apart from that a great family day out and my kids did not want to leave.
