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 mainly visited this place because of the name. But, it is so much more. The mazes are terrific but the section with the embassies of the world in miniature are fantastic mas well as the actual miniature Village. You have to understand the sense of humour in some of the structures and then you can have a real good laugh.

    I loved the atmosphere at this beautiful country winery. A little out of the way but great scenery so well worth the drive

    Some very interesting art, craft and photography exhibits on display here. It’s fabulous that such a small town is able to support such a splendid venture and enterprise. Great!

    Lovely well presented info centre, with helpful staff, an information video, souvenirs for sale** and plenty of info brochures for Sheffield and beyond.

    Conveniently located just off Sheffield's main street, lots of nearby parking and adjacent to Sheffield's outdoor mural display park.

    Worth a visit

    (** I would highly recommend the Blue Gum Gallery on Sheffield's main street for a huge selection of souvenirs and woodcrafts)

    Amazing street mural paintings spread around the streets of town centre. I took my time took me 2 hrs to see each painting might have missed a few.

    Come skip with me? Of course I am serious... remember when you were young and you would skip along delighted at life... yes... yes this is what we are going to do. In fact why don't we chant an old skipping rope song while we skip...

    Bluebells, cockle shells,
    Eevie, ivy, over;
    I like coffee, I like tea;
    I like the boys, and the boys like me.
    Tell your mother to hold her tongue;
    She had a fellow when she was young.
    Tell your father to do the same;
    He had a girl and he changed her name.
    Bluebells, cockle shells,
    Eevie, ivy, over;
    Mother went to market
    To buy some meat;
    Baby's in the cradle
    Fast asleep.
    The old clock on the mantel says
    One o'clock, two o'clock..
    (to twelve o'clock)

    You feel better, yes? Bright ... chirpy. Yes... this was fun.

    Walking along this path will be a similar experience... beautiful pieces of mosaic tile with delightful pictures of flora and fauna. It's a bit of fun... well worth going for a walk to look.

    Enjoyed browsing the gallery after our experience at the adjacent Visitor Centre. A very good range of local art and crafts, paintings, woodwork, textile products, etc. and a few of interest to us. Unfortunately, no one present to assist or make enquiry of.

    Eat your art out MONA! This art experience might not be what the typical museum lover goes for, but to the creative being who hath no judgment on what a mind can conceive, and an appreciation for the way out, this is Wonderland! Mark has painted almost every inch of his home (bathtub and toilet included) with images given to him...some ancient memories, some mythological forms from other dimensions, some from Goddess knows where! And the artist gives a tour of it all, explaining inch by inch what one is looking at. As entertaining to a therapist as to a theologian as to a cosmic trickster...And some for sale! As a collector of the odd and weird, I came home with a suitcase full. Be warned however, the master has his own way of giving his tour and one must not interrupt or ask questions until he is done! I went back twice to make sure as a seer, not one dimension went unnoticed!

    At the end of Johnson St in Sheffield, is a park/vacant block with a short elevated platform which is a perfect view of Mt Roland.

    Well worth seeking out for this brief by enjoyable view

    So who was King George V? He was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Emperor of India, from 6 May 1910 until his death in 1936.

    Born during the reign of his grandmother Queen Victoria, George was third in the line of succession behind his father, Prince Albert Edward, and his own elder brother, Prince Albert Victor. From 1877 to 1892, George served in the Royal Navy, until the unexpected death of his elder brother in early 1892 put him directly in line for the throne. On the death of Victoria in 1901, George's father ascended the throne as Edward VII, and George was created Prince of Wales. He became king-emperor on his father's death in 1910.

    So where is it? It is a little hidden behind the shops on the Main Street... and if you turn into High Street you will see a carpark there ... if you park , you can go through a stroll. It does have the mosaic park... and some amazing pioneer memorials. There are public toilets, a playground, a BBQ, picnic tables and lovely established trees.

    The War Memorial is in the form of a white marble statue of a WW1 soldier with rifle reversed and mounted atop a granite obelisk which is mounted on a three stepped base. As with the majority of memorials visited, it was erected to commemorate those who died during WW1 and dedicated in 1921. Later conflicts are commemorated by addition of other plaques.
