The Woodcocks October 2006

Originally opened in 1981, The Maze Sequoia Park was built by Doug and Peggy Kennedy. Doug ran shearing teams all across the State and built the Maze in his spare time. Doug was a lover of trees and planted all the large trees you see in the park, many of which he collected on his shearing adventures. The park originally catered for the tour group market offering the maze attraction, a sheep shearing show and of course the cuddly koalas.

In 2006 Doug and Peggy retired and sold the business to Paul and Nicole Woodcock, who own and operate the Wanneroo Botanic Gardens just up the road. After partnering with their brother and sister in law Phil and Ursula Dixon they commenced upgrading the infrastructure and introduced new attractions. Culminating in 2013 with the introduction of our waterslide playground, the first stage of their 10 year plan to build one of Perth’s best water park attractions.

What’s next? We hope to have a number of new water attractions completed for summer of 2016 and our exciting new maze attraction The Hedge Maze opened July 2015.
