What is a labyrinth?

A labyrinth is a simple non intrusive contemplative pathway set in the landscape used for walking exercise and meditation. The concept is often described as a stress management space and a spiritual place to relax. Walking the labyrinth is a detour from the everyday path of individual lives and an opportunity to slow down and reflect in the natural bushland setting of Diamond Creek. It’s an easy 5 minute stroll from the Diamond Creek Regional Playspace and would be available for people of all ages to use for peaceful contemplation and open their senses to nature.

Being in the public open space of Diamond Creek Reserve, and with the stones and gravel placed completely flush with the ground, the labyrinth will be all inclusive and open to people of all ages to use at anytime as a quiet meditation and contemplation space.
