A TASMANIAN tiger has been sighted at Rupertswood Farm.

Whitemore farmers Rowan and Anna Clark employed a UK maze designer to draft and cut the outline of a Tasmanian Tiger into a five-hectare plantation of sorghum with the aim of creating a fun and educational maze.

Crop mazes are popular forms of entertainment in the UK and the US.

Tasmania's first crop maze will be open to the public today and tomorrow from 9am until 5pm, and then open every weekend until Sunday, March 16.

An additional hay bale maze will be available to smaller children.

Mrs Clark said it would take roughly an hour to find the end of the maze. 

She said visitors would be able to explore the maze at their leisure, and children could also participate in the Tassie Tiger Trail to find the 10 tiger footprints hidden within the corridors of the maze.

A jumping castle, face painting, coffee and food vans would also be available on site.

Entry is $15 for adults, $10 for children and seniors, or $45 for a family.
