Melbourne trip (Day 2 Story 2 Part 1) Aschombe Maze & Lavender Gardens, Australia

How would you feel if you are trapped in a maze? Well, it is interesting to visit a hedge maze Aschombe Maze and Lavender Gardens.

The entrance. We parked our car outside the entrance.

There are few hand made decorative items around the garden.

We paid the entrance fee of AUD 16.50 each at the entrance. It is a license cafe, if you need food.

Before the trip, I read online, the staff will give you a flag or sensor, when you are lost, just raise the flag or press the sensor, they will come secure you. Then I asked the staff, if I lost in the maze, what should I do? She answered me, find your way out, you won't have trouble in finding way out. Ha ha. More on the hedge maze in next post, stay tuned :D

Beside the hedge maze, there is also rose maze, lavender garden, woodland garden, a small lake, all with nice scenery.

Mid october is not blooming season for rose, thus very few rose flower around. Anyway, it could be fun to walk in the rose maze.

There were few pots of herbs. If you bought western mix herbs for cooking, those name should not be new to you :)


Before we left, we bought the lavendar ice cream and had it in their cafe. If I am correct, the ice cream is normal vanilla ice cream taste, just with added lavender inside.

The entrance fee:
Adults $16.50
Children (4-16years) $9.50
Senior Card and Health Care Card Holders $14.00
Family (2 Adults & 2 Children) $45.00
Additional Children on a Family Ticket +$5.00 each
