Be part of the scene at one of the world's great blue water classics that has been thrilling Australian's since 1945, and the first to welcome the brave and weary competitors as they return to dry land at the Hobart Race Village on Constitution Dock, December 27th - 31st.

The Maze is open to the public to explore for a limited time (five weekends in March), before the crop is harvested. In addition to the Maze, there are other farm attractions in the maze courtyard for families to enjoy, such as hay bale structures for children to climb and vegetables to pick.
