What can be more fun than a real life three dimensional hedge maze?
Adults and children alike enjoy the challenge of finding their way around the mazes at Ashcombe.

hedgemaze1Located in Shoreham on the Mornington Peninsula, Ashcombe Maze boasts the oldest hedge maze (over 40 years old) in Victoria and the fragrant lavender and rose mazes are equally delightful and surprisingly more challenging than they might first appear.

The Ashcombe Garden Discovery Trail is a self-guided tour that explores kilometers of meandering gardens. Ashcombe Maze is home to acres of Woodland Gardens with a number of features: the Orchard, the Rock Garden, the Scented Garden, the Herb Barrels, the Small Woodland,  the Lily Pond, the Koala Food Trees and Lake Ashcombe to name a few.

The Ashcombe Maze Café features Ashcombe’s harvested lavender in a number of menu items all made on site; lavender scones, lavender ice-cream, and lavender tea blends (green, chamomile and black).
All menu items are home made on the premises – featuring produce from the Ashcombe culinary garden.
The Mornington Peninsula is one-hour drive southeast from Melbourne. 
This picturesque region is surrounded by sea on three sides, with Port Phillip Bay to the east, Westernport Bay to the west and Bass Strait to the south.
