Looks like the picture-perfect day to get lost! Welcome to Tasmazia, tucked away in the quirky Village of Lower Crackpot in Northwest Tassie. This fantastic maze complex is home to 8 mazes, including the Great Maze (one of the world’s largest botanical mazes), the Hampton Court Maze, and the coordination-shattering Balance Maze. It’s a wild day out for the whole family with plenty of fun, laughs and challenges for adventures of all sizes - and once you’re done exploring the hedges, reward yourselves with a treat in the Pancake Parlour or browse the games, puzzles and locally made crafts at the Gift Shop.
