Nestled in the picturesque hills of North East Victoria, Brookfield Maze is about 45 minutes drive from Benalla or Wangaratta in the King Valley area.
We have lived in North East Victoria for over 10 years but I had not visited this area previously as it is off main roads. I was pleasantly surprised and found it to be a lovely scenic drive.
We have been to several mazes in Australia and Overseas and the Brookfield Maze is up there with the best we have visited. The Maze is large and we took about half an hour to find our way to the centre platform and back out again, but somehow managed to miss one of the clues.
A lot of work has gone into the beautiful gardens surrounding the Maze, which also include a brick maze (labyrinth), sculptures, chess and checkers. Something for everyone.
We also had lunch (and several cappuccino's). There was a great variety of home cooked meals and desserts available (the choice was hard). The Chicken Pie and Quiche were excellent and we although we didn't have room for the desserts, they looked delicious. The coffee was great as was the service.
It was a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon in a peaceful and picturesque location. We will definitely visit again, in the Spring, as I imagine the garden will be even more spectacular.

"Great venue for groups and families"

We went here with a group of about 45 seniors on a group visit. We enjoyed a beautiful 2 course lunch which was a highlight of our day's outing and one of the best lunches the group has had anywhere. The meal was tasty and very well presented and, unlike many modern restaurants, the servings were generous. The meal was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the group is still talking about the meal 10 days later. The hosts, Jeff & Eryl, were very accommodating with a couple of special dietary needs. The maze is a good place for all age groups and the gardens are very well presented and include a bocce court, giant chess set, labyrinth and various places for quiet reflection. The morning and afternoon teas are also good, making this a recommended destination anytime you are visiting Victoria's north-east. Not far from Benalla, Wangaratta or the King Valley.
