Barrabool Maze Estate property was originally developed in the 1990’s as a nursery, café and hedge maze. It operated until 2009. The maze is a fun way to challenge the mind and have fun with family as the problem solving begins.... and there are two lookouts to get a bird’s eye view of the maze, gardens and surrounding area.
Barrabool Maze Estate sits on 1.6 hectares near Ceres, West of Geelong, in a rainshadow created by the Otway Ranges, making it one of the state’s driest areas. The gardens are full of tough, beautiful plants that are suited to the harsh conditions of the Barrabool Hills. Dry or not, the gardens draw on the principles of good design. The plants are arranged to make the most of foliage, flower and form. Robust Australian plants mingle with hardy exotics. Cacti and succulents make bold foliage features throughout the year and tough attractive roses and perennials bring seasonal interest to the gardens. By combining a palette of fascinating and unique plants that have adapted to dry climate conditions that is both beautiful and practical.
