Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens is home to Australia’s oldest and most famous hedge maze, a beautiful circular rose maze, and the year round flowering Lavender Labyrinth, all set among 25 acres of world acclaimed gardens.
The traditional hedge maze is planted with more than 1000 cypress trees and thousands of metres of pathways. Now more than three metres high and two metres thick, the maze keeper clips the hedges three times a year to keep it sculpted into a curvaceous challenge that will delight and inspire.
The Lavender Labyrinth is planted with year round flowering lavender and the view from the centre over the lavender rows is spectacular. More than 3000 lavender plants are planted overlooking the impressive Arboretum, and the Lavender display gardens features more than 40 different lavenders, providing an insight into the history of lavender.
Visitors are welcome to wander through the gardens on the self guided Garden Discovery Trail. The famous Great Ashcombe Gnome Hunt is fun for all ages.
Summer, autumn, winter and spring there is always something beautiful to be experienced at Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens.
