Located halfway between Launceston and Devonport, and only 15-minutes from the beautiful Tamar Valley region, Glengarry Bush Maze is an outstanding attraction in Tasmania. Here, you will find a spectacular hedge bush maze, several activities and giant brain-puzzles, and a beautiful lush rainforest bushwalk.



Glengarry Bush Maze is a rustic, authentic and real nature experience. It is welcoming and fun, as well as challenging with the Bush Maze and the giant puzzles and games.

The Maze

The maze is a giant lush hedge maze with a rotunda located in the centre. There are bells to ring once you wind your way through the maze and finally conquer it. Then take a well-deserved seat at the garden benches.



Some of us found the rotunda with ease, while the rest of the group kept going in circles, eventfully finding their way to the centre.



The Bushwalk

The bushwalk is home to lush rainforest, ferns, birdlife and wildlife. The walk is easy and takes around 20 minutes return. There is a creek that runs through the bush, and if you are lucky and very quiet, platypus can be spotted by the creek.



Birdwatching can also be enjoyed on the walk as well as wildlife spotting (if you are quiet). The walk was tranquil and a lovely way to explore some of the spectacular Tasman bushlands without the crowds and noisy tourists.



The Games

There are several giant garden games, puzzles, and game mazes. The Tyre Maze aim is to follow the set sequence until you find the centre.

The Arrow Maze is a maze where you follow the arrows to the end and suited for kids as it is a lot easier finish than the Tyre Maze.



Other games and puzzles included individual, collaborative and competition games/ puzzles. Some of the games and puzzles included giant Connect Four, giant labyrinth, giant chess, and much more.

Some games looked easy, however, on some, we struggled and spent up to half an hour laughing trying to find our way to the finish. Tea Rooms are available with offerings of lunch, coffee and cakes.



Glengarry Bush Maze is the perfect way to spend half or a full day exploring, experiencing and having fun. The kids will love trying to find their way through the maze, exploring the tranquil bushland and, of course, have fun playing and trying to work out the giant games.

Glengarry Bush Maze is a family-friendly attraction and, of course for adults too.
