Lonely Planet review for Labyrinth Woodworks

Labyrinth Woodworks is an Aladdin’s cave of handmade puzzles and games. Crack the code in the outdoor maze by collecting letters to form a word.

From the Labyrinth Woodworks website

We are situated next to the Waima Kauri Forest & Waterfall Walkways at Waiotemarama. We are 3 kilometers for Waiotemarama End and 6 kilometers Opononi end of the Gorge Road.

Wander around our large variety of great quality affordable Arts, Crafts, Puzzles and Games. Some of the many items we stock include woodturning, woodem jigsaw puzzles, games, carvings, wood engravings and cards by Allan Gale, boards, candles, kete, tiles, polished kauri gum and kaleidoscopes.

Try your luck on solving some of our many puzzles, made locally or overseas. Our largest puzzle, our Amazing Hedge Maze is open all year, so come and get lost, a great family activity.

Check out some of our marvelous walks, we have many. The Water Fall Track will take you about 30 mintes return, the Loop Walk wil take you through stands of giant 1000 year old kauri trees, the Loop Track will take around 2 hours return. The Hauturu Trig Track 6 hours return, some magnifcent views along the way and at the top. Ask us about the longer walks. Check here for more Hokianga Walks Information.

Make a fun day of it, bring a picnic lunch to eat on our picnic tables.
Plenty of parking.

New project "A Maze In Garden" 

Our new project "A Maze In Garden" was started in 2005 and will hopefully be open to the public by 2015. "A Maze In Garden" is basically a maze in a garden, when finished will have nearly 1 kilometer of track through a native and exotic garden, where one can solve with giant puzzles and marvel and quirky statues. Many hundreds of trees planted over the last eight years are growing well, and the first of the statues is onsite.

NZ's First Puzzle Museum

The museum contains around 2000 puzzles that have been collected over a 55 year period. Some date to the 1890’s and early twentieth century and represent the works of both renowned and obscure puzzle designers from over 50 countries.
