Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took 4 grandchildren ranging from 1-5 years old for the afternoon and kept them entertained for 3 hours. They loved the dinosaur display and participated in the accompanying supervised art activity. We loved the wetlands walk, searching for the letters along the way that made up the magic word. Fun activities for all in the mirror room, the carousel, the jumping castle, coits, hockey, chess and more. We will be back to try the maze and other activities soon. The outing finished well with craft activities set out in the cafe and an ice-cream for each of them. We all enjoyed ourselves and appreciated the friendliness of the staff.

Badly understaffed & the staff working were doing their best but were very young & overwhelmed.

Easter Sunday event was not very well organised.
Egg & Spoon race……they couldn’t find the spoons.
Easter Egg hunt stared very late and the kids were waiting in the heat,some crying as there was a false start and half the kids began grabbing eggs too early.

The train & carousel were $5 a go then half way thru the day were free. We’d already paid for both by that point.

Cafe was filthy & chaos, no one cleaning or clearing tables. I cleared a few just to try & help as there were too many flies coming in.

Waited 45 mins for 1 pizza, 1 toastie & 2 fresh cheese/tom croissants.
After 45 mins we got given the wrong pizza and told to just take it.
The toastie was slapped together so badly and both croissants were wrong fillings & burnt despite asking for fresh.
We are because by that point we were starving & our 4yr old needed food.

Felt this event needed way more staff and a bit more thought……felt money grabbing.

The place itself is very tired & lacked safety.
It’s not worth the money.

Great afternoon out with the family. Very much enjoyed the lawn of board games and the mini golf. Very friendly staff. A shame the extras weren't open (train and merry go round) as not a weekend. But enough to entertain a 3 year old for the afternoon. Would recommend.

This place was a lot of fun
The staff were very friendly and helpful
The zip line was supervised very well, particularly for smaller children
My grandchildren loved the maze, the mini golf and one of them (a 6 year old) loved the zip line
Thank you all of you

We made a mistake by taking full park entrance for ourselves and 2 grandchildren aged 6 and 4. The children were only interested in the dinosaurs and related activity which occupied them for 90 minutes. The train ride was very short. The gardens were OK and the mini golf was not suitable for young kids. The cafe was alright but the gifts were very expensive. So $150 for 90 minutes was pretty poor value. Should have/could have paid less than half that for just the dinosaurs. Moral of this tale...do better research!!

I work at a center where we support adult with a Intellectual Disability, we came to Boneo Maze for a group outing. The lady who served us was very accommodating and friendly towards us, we'll defiantly be back and recommend.

Very disappointed. The entire place is in need of maintenance. From unsafe steps on the structure in the middle of the maze, the wetlands are overgrown with bindweed, the lakes are overgrown with reefs so the paddle boats don’t work, the garden is overgrown and rotting, even where the Dino sculptures are is in need of weeding.

Over priced for what it is.

Visited the park Wednesday Jan 11th 2023. We paid for the lot. Sand sculptures, park and mini gulf. How disappointing. Three adults one child was over $150. The sand sculptures were not worth paying for. There were only a few, they lacked detail and looked shabby. The attendant said kids had climbed on them, doubt it not very well done. We felt they should have not been extra given what they were. The rest of the park is ordinary, lots of overgrown wetlands.Carousel tiny, train miniature both suitable for kids up to 3 or 4. Mini gulf no shade, not really worth $10 per person per game. Doubt this park will survive going forward. Hardly anyone there. The staff however were very pleasant. Hopefully it's a work in progress.

I found this to be very expensive and not worth the money. It probably only took us about 15 mins to walk the grounds and do the maze and then about 45 mins playing mini golf. For an adult and 2 children this cost us $78.
Kids wanted lunch too but after looking at the prices we decided to go elsewhere.
If you come here I'd suggest just doing mini golf. Don't waste money on grounds entry.

No, no, no.... Don't do it. People travelling down from the city, tourist coming from overseas and locals should stay right away till some money is spent on the "i don't know what". Work over and the ACCC will be notified. Unmaintained equipment {if you have access to them} and lack of supervision by staff whom I wonder what training they have. Child stuck on climbing wall for 20 minutes. Child sprayed in eye with aerosol paint whilst spray painting, no safety equipment
provided.
