Did you know there's a maze right in the heart of Sydney?!

Neild Avenue Maze in Paddington might not be the biggest of mazes in NSW, but it's certainly worth a look if you're in the area.

Located on Neild Avenue in Paddington, this adorable maze was built in the early 1980s and is tucked away in the backstreets of Paddington and has become something of a secret hidden gem in Sydney.

Location: 7 Neild Ave, Paddington

2. Amazement Maze

The Amazement Fun Park & Farm
One of the closest mazes to Sydney is a great stop for the whole family.


The Amazement Fun Park & Farm is a bit of a paradise for families. As well as a farm animal petting zoo, pony rides, horse and cart rides, giant board games and an awesome kid's playground, you'll find multiple magical mazes.

Plus, the brand-new Central Coast Zoo is right next door to Amazement Fun park and is set to open in 2023!

For an elegant piece of history and scenery, visit this historic maze in Berrima.

The two-acre grounds of this circa-1835 mansion are home to a beautiful maze. While it's not the biggest on our list, it's a real beauty, sharing its abode with rose gardens and herb, fruit and veggie patches.

The stunning Bago Vineyards maze.

This is the largest maze in NSW, covering 10,000m 2! Nestled in the Bago Vineyards, this two-metre tall maze can take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on your escape-artist capabilities. You can even take the Bago Maze Challenge, where you will have to search for hidden items and musical instruments within the maze, and cross bridges and boardwalks built deep within the green labyrinth. 

Location: Milligans Road, Wauchope

6. Mayfield Garden

Mayfield Gardens Maze
Do mazes get more exquisite than at Mayfield Gardens?

Bloomin' magical! At Mayfield Garden, there is so much for families to see and do: a huge plant nursery, roaming chickens, a worm farm, an onsite cafe with a paddock-to-plate menu, farm animals, a giant chessboard, man-made waterfalls and a huge European-inspired maze! Once you reach the middle of the legendary Mayfield Maze, ring the victory bell! 

Mayfield is located about 2 hours and 45 minutes from Sydney or 40 minutes from Bathurst, so make a country weekend of it! Mayfield regularly hold seasonal festivals, so make sure you check their website for what's on before you plan your visit.
