Families to enjoy hunting for treasure and exploring the environment

April 14, 2017 by  

Visitors and residents of Brookvale will have a chance to enjoy a family fun day during the school holidays while hunting for hidden treasure in nearby Dee Why.

Clues will be provided in a treasure map to enable participants to utilise their detective skills, search for hidden treasure, explore the gardens and enjoy the scenery as they encounter local animals. It is promised that every child will go home with some treasure.

Organised by the Northern Beaches Council, which is committed to protecting the environment, this is an opportunity to explore the natural bushland surroundings and learn a little about our native wildlife. A free sausage sizzle barbecue will be provided, and Billy Bandicoot will make a special appearance to entertain the children at 11:00 am.

It is recommended that protective clothing such as long sleeves, long pants and covered shoes be worn by all participants. It is possible that signs and banner printing may be used, as well as engaging the use of printing services for treasure maps.

The treasure hunt will be held at the Stony Range Botanical Gardens on Pittwater Road at Dee Why on Thursday April 20 with two starting times: 10:00 am and 10:45 am. The event is free and all ages are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
