Everyone wants to know when the Mayfield Maze is open along with all 65 hectares of the Hawkins’ Family Garden. The answer is 32 days a year, during the Autumn and Spring Festivals. The Mayfield Maze is one of the largest English Box Hedge Maze in Australia and is 1.4 km long.
Glamping in the Garden
The second question on everyone’s lips is, “When can I go glamping at Mayfield?” Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Autumn Glamping has been cancelled for the 2019 season. Mayfield is working hard to enhance this unique experience that’s on everyone’s bucket list and hopes to have a new offering for Spring 2019. If you require a refund for the Autumn season, please contact Simple Pleasures Camping Co. on +61 434 107 246.

The Personal and Private Garden Tour takes your Mayfield experience to a whole new level…
Picked up from local accommodation in Bathurst & Oberon, on arrival a personal tour around the Hawkins’ Family Garden, plus areas that cannot be viewed during seasonal festivals! Enter through the family’s private entrance and view the private areas normally not open outside of festival events. View Australia’s 2nd largest Maze, Mayfield Chapel, the Rose Garden, croquet lawn, the sculptured garden, and amphitheatre. You will be served a private lunch including Mayfield’s signature ‘Communal Feast’ in The Glass House. Following lunch, walk through the Hawkins private Japanese Garden and within Mayfield House which isn’t even on the Mayfield map during seasonal seasons. Before you leave, you’ll stop into the Cafe & Nursery Produce Store so you can take away a piece of Mayfield home with you!
It will be a day you’ll never forget and a life-experience which should be on everyone’s bucket list.
