Pirate Pete’s


Arrgh me hearties! come joins me Pirate Pete and me’s scurvy crew as we set sail for the adventure of a lifetime! Come test your Piratin’ skills on me challengin’ 18 hole golf course as you putt ya’ way around the 30 meter Princess Carribean Pirate Ship. Don’t linger too long in the gold mine under the waterfall, there be Pirate ghosts in dere and watch out for the grouch in the ole’ out back dunny.

Come enjoy Pirate Pete’s Mini-golf and escape into another world as you encounter several life-size pirate figurines, including one of Captain Jack Sparrow himself. There are eighteen holes of fun to challenge you as you navigate through the different Australian landscapes - from the beach to the bush and then to the red soil of the outback.

Mini-golf was added to Maru in 2001 and over a quarter of a million dollars was spent upgrading it in 2008 to transform the golf course into a pirate wonderland. Amongst the figurines there is also a five meter shark to see and photograph! Walk under the thunderous waterfall or up the mountain for a bird’s eye view of the golf course and park.

The greens are uniquely designed to challenge your golfing skills, with entertaining props along the way. Watch your ball transverse the roof of the old hut, or shoot up the windmill high over the green before plunging into the water tank and back out onto the next green. The game ends at the outback pub where ‘loyal dog’ will catch your ball as you complete the game at hole eighteen.

Visit us for an entertaining round of mini-golf, or take advantage of our specially discounted ‘All Day Pass’ to enjoy a day out at mini-golf and the Animal Park.
