While many of us have been kicking back, relaxing and making the most of our well-deserved summer breaks, the folk at The Enchanted Maze Garden have been hard at work on a whole range of exciting new attractions.
They’ve recently opened a .8ha lower section of the Enchanted Adventure Garden that can be accessed by a picturesque 300m boardwalk along the side of the Enchanted Lake. The boardwalk features unique handcrafted wrought iron fencing designed by Peninsula landscaper Colin Hyett, from Colin Hyett Design. As well as the fencing design, Colin and his team have been busy mass planting succulents and other plants around the area.
In this part of the park there is also a new hedge maze with a viewing platform that will take your breath away. Finally, there’s a new picnic area for families to enjoy, so why not make the most of the summery weather and bring a picnic lunch and spend the whole day at The Enchanted Maze Garden.
If you’re up for a bit of physical activity, you can try your hand at tree surfing. There are several courses available, each with more than 50 obstacles, bridges and five zip-lines linked to tree-based platforms up to 10m high. For adrenaline junkies, the Adventure Combo combines the Grand Tree Surfing and Big Zip attractions — the Big Zip takes you flying over 300m across the formal gardens and Enchanted Lake, while the two-hour Grand Tree Surfing course offers five levels of challenges, a giant Tarzan swing, and a rock climbing wall. There’s even a dedicated Nippers course for children who are also seeking an adrenaline rush.
Let the enchantment begin.
