About Bellingham Maze


Today Bellingham Maze has a beautiful new lilly pilly hedge maze opened in March 2015. The NEW hedge maze took 20 months to regrow after the original,  worse for wear, cypress pine hedge maze was completely removed in 2013. A visit today means you'll enjoy the wonderful 80x80 metre star shaped hedge maze. Families will enjoy the Dwarf Quiz or the Harry Potter quiz to keep the kids entertained as they wander around the maze.

Entry to the hedge maze is by a token gate with a token purchased from the tea house. Visitors are able to wander through the hedge maze at their leisure, find the tower in the middle and enjoy the views. On exiting the hedge maze there are other fun mazes - a rope maze, tyre maze, a wooden maze with a scrabble game and a unique, flat, 2 par mini golf course.

A garden cafe serves delicious Devonshire teas, espresso coffees and simple lunches for people on the go (sausage rolls, meat pies, scones, ice creams and milkshakes). Brain teasing puzzles are available to play with on the tables in the tea house and can be purchased from the shop - if you just want to take one home (or give as a gift).


Bellingham Maze originally opened to the public in 1993, is one of the most familiar attractions on the Sunshine Coast. This Queensland tourism icon is set in a lush tropical rainforest environment, located on Tanawha Tourist Drive #25 close to other popular Sunshine Coast attractions. Underwater World, Aussie World - The Ettamogah Pub and the best Sunshine Coast beaches are only minutes away (Coolum, Maroochydore, Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba). A visit to Bellingham Maze Sunshine Coast tourist attraction is a must-do as part of your Sunshine Coast holiday.
The attraction has expanded over the last 12 years to include a range of maze-themed activities. These include the timber scrabble maze (2013), 18 hole unique flat mini golf course (2011), and a variety of smaller mazes including the rope maze, tyre maze, box of books maze and traffic lights maze. The garden cafe is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy your favourite coffee or a light lunch.

After you’ve spent lazy days on the beach there are plenty of interesting and fun Sunshine Coast things to do. So when it comes to your holiday Sunshine Coast, a visit to Bellingham Maze is a brain-teasing, relaxing day out for all the family and one of the favourite Sunshine Coast attractions. 

“The kids love going to Bellingham Maze, the staff are always so friendly, and as an alternative to the beach it’s very safe outdoor fun.”

Frequent visitors Tracy Sands and Kate Odgers of Buderim   

After entering Bellingham Maze through our magic waterfall, you'll pass our wishing well, cross the bridge and walk through our tropical rainforest garden before reaching the garden cafe and entry to the mazes. Then you can choose, mazes plus mini golf, or just visit all the mazes. The NEW hedge maze will be open in time for Easter 2015.

About the Hedge Maze

The huge 80 x 80 metre star shaped hedge maze went through an extensive regeneration program with one of the Sunshine CoastÂ’s favourite plants, the lilly pilly replacing all the original 20 year old cypress pine trees. It has been a labour of love for the current owners and their small team of dedicated staff.  Due to the constant rains and an average of 4 floods per year from 2009 to 2013, the cypress pines were gradually growing into trees and exposing their naked trunks. Since Bellingham Maze is a family attraction, nakedness in front of the public is just not on (lol), hence the decision to remove the original cypress pine trees and replant the entire maze.

More than a thousand lilly pillies are planted in the star shape of the original maze opened in March 2015.

The new hedge maze was planted in 2013 and opened in  March 2015.
