About Us

Our Wonderland Story!

Mazes, gardens, adventure, oh my!

Your Mornington Peninsula adventure starts here, at the top of Arthurs Seat! For over 25 years, we’ve believed that adventure is a key ingredient to fun and created a host of exciting activities for all ages.

From our epic Tube Slides to our Tree Surfing courses, giant brainteaser puzzles, Canopy Walk, Sky Scramble and more, there is adventure for adults and kids alike! Lose yourself in the colours of themed gardens, marvel at the structures of hedge topiary and giant sculptures or get tangled in one of our many mazes.

In the beginning…

From humble beginnings, Enchanted Adventure has grown into a wonderland of adventure activities designed to enliven the senses & challenge the mind with the creation of a quality experience being our own living and breathing work of art.

The first block of land was purchased back in 1994 to prepare and grow the mazes & gardens. Enchanted Adventure, at the time called Arthurs Seat Maze, officially opened in 1997 to provide the Mornington Peninsula with a curated space full of gardens, mazes and picnic areas.

The Maize Maze

Early on, the park included a specially designed (and wildly popular) ‘Maize Maze’ that had a different pattern or image each summer for a new challenge. Each pattern was unique and had to be plotted carefully with the help of aerial assistance for accuracy.

Over the years, the ‘Maize Maze’ included designs such as a clown, flower, pirate, kangaroo and more. Guests who explored this maze were given colourful flags to help the staff members locate them if they got lost and needed help to find their way out.

The ‘Maize Maze’ was so popular that it drew attention from local and state newspapers. The owner, Michael, and the park were featured several times in the media to announce the new design each summer and inspire families to visit.

2000 – 2014

The next stage to enhance the park was including sculptures and hedge topiary. This was aided with the ‘Artist in Residence’ program, which allowed local artists to create sculpture art inspired by the land & park around them.

The park was later expanded even further by the purchase of an additional block of bushland. This new block allowed the team to expand our Sculpture Walks as well as build and create our indoor 3D Spooky Maze & Mirror House as well as our Tube Slide attraction.

Ten years later, our Tree Surfing courses were added to the park on that same bushland block, helping to jumpstart the owner’s vision for an eco-adventure park on the Mornington Peninsula.

2018 – 2020

In recent years, we have added in an additional hedge maze with a unique & locally designed Viewing Platform in the centre, various boardwalks to further immerse guests in the natural bushland and included more locally handcrafted sculptures. To top it all off, we saw the opening of our Sky Scramble attraction at the end of 2020, a specially designed aerial playground for smaller children under 135cm.

 

Today & Beyond

 

This brings us to where we are today. Enchanted Adventure is an award-winning natural attraction nestled into the beautiful hinterland of Arthurs Seat on the Mornington Peninsula. It is a place where you can re-connect with the people you care most about and have a whole lot of fun while you’re at it!

The owner, Michael, continues to become inspired and add new & exciting additions to the park. Just this year, we have seen the expansion of the Tube Slides area to include 3 additional slides. This allows us to cater for more guests throughout our peak seasons so they can get the most thrills possible.

In early 2023, we hope to open a brand new attraction that the team is very excited about! Keep your eyes peeled for more info coming soon.
