Bellingham Maze

Sunshine Coast hotels

The Bellingham Maze is a surprise that awaits you. A challenging hedge maze, brain teasing puzzles, delicious Devonshire Teas, mini tile mazes, huge walk- through aviary. Take the family to "get lost" in this living hedge maze with 2 metre high rows of fragrant cypress pine hedges.

First you negotiate the magic waterfall at the entrance to the attraction, once you get through without getting wet, make your way through sub-tropical rainforest pathways to the tea house. The idea is to then find your way through the pathways amongst the hedges until you find the fountain in the middle of the maze. Sometimes you can hear it, sometimes you get a glimpse of it, but can you find it?

Usually takes about 20 minutes to find your way to the fountain and then find your way back out again. When you do find your way out, you can climb the steps to the timber deck and laugh at everyone who is still lost in the maze! Try the brain teasing puzzles on all the tables in the tea house - and maybe purchase one to take home with you. Have a go at the mini tile mazes, designed by world maze designer Adrian Fisher. Then, when you feel sufficiently challenged, you can take the relaxing rainforest walk to the huge walk-through aviary and enjoy all the lovely birds.

Appeals to all age groups, from young families, honeymooners, to the young at heart, seniors, retirees and groups. Bring a picnic lunch or treat yourself to Devonshire tea or Lavazza coffee. Easy to find along the Tanawha Tourist Drive.

Bellingham Maze is on the Tanawha Tourist Drive number 25, easy to find from anywhere on the Sunshine Coast. Follow the signs to the Super Bee and the maze is half a km past it. Unfortunately there is no public transport so you really need a car. The closest bus route is Chancellor Park, a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk from the maze.
