Stunning Chinese lantern display after 6pm every night
Boneo Maze on the Mornington Peninsula, becomes an illuminating delight for you and your family, in the upcoming Lantasia summer spectacle.

Lantasia Boneo Maze

The 27-acre eco-tourism spot is well known for its serene and well-maintained gardens, outdoor games to enjoy, mini golf to play and the famous hedge maze to conquer.

The beautiful outdoor exhibition sees silk light sculptures radiate throughout the gardens of Boneo Maze. The nature based attraction invites you and your family to discover the ancient tradition of Chinese lantern displays. Direct from the recent Dandenong Festival of Lights, the exquisite display of more than 100 hand-painted silk sculptures will light up 1.5 km of boardwalk until 10pm every night.

Enjoy balmy evenings and watch the gardens glow with all manner of beautiful sculptures, some up to 3m high. See softly-lit pink flamingos, ibis, lotus flowers, giant lilies, grasshoppers and butterflies illuminate your evening walk.

View light sculptures up close in the Dragon photo seat and falling tree light display: a feature in the Games garden. Not forgetting, music, lights and grandeur of the Wittingslow family's vintage carousel (circa 1864).

Boneo's cafe will remain open into the night, so you can replenish with a hot coffee, a Rye Chai, an ice cream or dessert at the lakeside cafe.
