We recently undertook a Sunday drive to finally check out the Mintaro Maze. 2 hours drive north of Adelaide, Mintaro is a township in the Clare Valley, between Auburn and Clare. A visit to the Mintaro Maze makes for an ideal day trip or excuse for a weekender in this picturesque part of South Australia.
On arrival, guests pay for entrance at the gift shop and are given a quiz sheet titled The Mintaro Maze Game which sets a challenge to identify various features of the maze and neighbouring Gnome Garden.
Throw a coin into the Water Fairy's pond and make a wish.
