The Rose Maze

"Absolutely stunning! Loved the Rose Maze, especially. Well done!!"
        - Lara McKimmie, Torquay, Vic.


Sitting right alongside The Kodja Place, more than one hundred species of heat-loving roses form a maze of complex paths. The beautiful roses are bred especially for Australian conditions, and many are rare heritage species. 

Visitors who embark upon the journey through the maze are led through a series of plaques, mosaics and striking pergolas ranging from old sheep yards to the mission brown 1970s pergola, the Woodhenge to the ‘deaths in custody’ pergola.

The Rose Maze weaves together the stories of three women: Yoondi; the Noongar woman, Elizabeth; an Englishwoman, and the Italian woman; Maria. 

Through letters, a journal and personal dialogues these women impart a powerful personal message of the trials and hardships of rural life in the early 20th century, stories of hardship, loneliness and isolation. Their stories are expressed throughout the maze.

Growing in hedges up to two metres high, the colours have been chosen to sit naturally amongst the remnant native trees of the townscape.

Complex, multi-layered and entertaining, the Rose Maze provides a contemplative and illuminating diversion, accessible at a number of levels by all ages and designed for people with a range of interests, from historians to gardeners.
