Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens
Australia’s oldest hedge maze, the world’s first circular rose maze, a lavender labyrinth, beautifully themed gardens, licensed café and gift shop – all set on a magnificent property just one hour from Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula.
The maze and internationally acclaimed woodland gardens create delightful sensory experiences that change with every season. Spring welcomes a riot of colour, including more than two million bluebells. Summer is awash with perfume, as the rose maze’s 1200 old-fashioned rose bushes and more than 40 varieties of lavender scent the air. The woodlands put on a brilliant autumn display, and the lavender gardens continue flowering even in winter.
Take the self-guided garden discovery trail and learn about rare and unusual plants. If you’re fascinated by lavender, enjoy a spectacular view from the central crow’s nest across fields of more than 4000 lavender plants. Relax by tranquil water features or enjoy activities with the children in the gardens, including the great gnome hunt.
Tackle the 3-metre high hedge maze before enjoying breakfast, morning or afternoon tea in the café overlooking the gardens. Morning and afternoon tea feature home-made lavender scones with homemade jam. Be sure to try Ashcombe’s signature lavender ice-cream! Take time to indulge yourself with the Ashcombe collection of handmade lavender and rose beauty products.
