Have a great family fun day at the Tangled Maze and Mistydowns Nursery - a large and unusual maze just bursting with flowers.

Mystery trails, puzzles and plenty of space for kids to burn up that unspent energy. Try a challenging game of mini golf or enjoy a leisurely game of bocce, giant chess, quoits or naughts and crosses to keep those busy minds occupied.

Rain hail or shine the whole family can have fun in the indoor activity centre on the synthetic ice rink or get the adrenaline going with a game of laser tag.

Relax and take in the fabulous views or enjoy the tasty meals in our tempting cafe. Browse in Mistydowns Nursery, well stocked with heritage roses, peonies and unusual perennials.

Bookings made by any groups will enjoy hours of pleasure at special rates. Christmas break-ups and birthday parties can enjoy what is on offer with a difference. Seating available for up to 120 people.

Tangles function room with its unique French Baroque decor is an ideal venue for weddings, conferences, parties or special events. Seating up to 120 guests with views to die for, it is fully licensed and completely self contained. The glass atrium entry is ideal for pre dinner drinks or small functions and overlooks beautiful wrought iron balustrade landing.

Getting lost in the maze is half the fun at The Tangled Maze, beautiful gardens, fabulous views, delicious food and coffee, a delightful place for all ages to relax and enjoy a great day out.

Weddings, corporate groups and conferences catered for both in their function room and team building activities outdoors.

Visit the Tangled Maze next time you are in the Ballarat region. There is something for everyone to enjoy because getting lost is only half the fun.
