Something very exciting is happening in Tingha, a small town inland from Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.

Tingha feijoa maze

Around 2000 feijoa trees have been planted to form a hedge maze. First one, anywhere.

They’re only two years old at the moment and have a way to grow. But, doesn’t it look good?

The maze is expected to be open to the public in 2015. And there are hopes for a cafe and a Big Feijoa*.

I’m thinking Tingha is set to become the feijoa capital of Australia and I’ve got my road trip pencilled in.

Many thanks to Christine Neville for the lovely photographs.
