The Tweed Regional Museum’s latest holiday activity for kids is a tricky treasure hunt in Murwillumbah.
The Let’s Play! Museum Treasure Hunt is free and open to children and young people up to 18 years of age and involves hunters following a map around historical sites in Murwillumbah CBD, collecting clues along the way.
Starting and finishing at the Museum on Queensland Road, each one of the 11 clues contributes to the overall answer and completed entries will go into a draw for a family prize package.
The prize package includes a family pass to the Regent Cinema, a family pass to Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre in Murwillumbah and gift vouchers from Murwillumbah-based businesses Mill & Make and Cracklepoint Games.
Everyone gets a surprise gift from the museum
Everyone who hands in a completed entry will also receive a small surprise gift from the Museum.
The Museum’s Public Programs and Audience Development Officer Shannon Rees said participants can learn some of the fascinating history contained in the streets of Murwillumbah while testing their clue-finding skills.
‘It’s a treasure hunt the whole family can participate in and you don’t have to find all the clues in one day.’
Contestants can pick up the clues during the course of the competition and once they have all 11, they can drop their completed entry in at the Museum.
The competition is free to enter and will run from 10am Tuesday 5 January until 4pm Saturday 23 January 2021.
Treasure hunt maps are available from Tweed Regional Museum in Murwillumbah during opening hours. The winner will be drawn at random on Wednesday 27 January.
