  • Sun 20 Jan ’13, 10:00am – 4:00pm


Capital E, 4 Queens Wharf, Wellington


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Gold coin donation: $0.00

Brought to you by Summer City and Capital E.

With destinations to find, clues to uncover, and fun tasks to complete it’s a once-a-year way to discover Wellington’s beautiful waterfront in a whole new light. Complete the clues to find the locations of a popular waterfront attraction, and with each new destination you find a fun challenge will await you. In return for completing an obstacle course, writing a verse to a song, making a boat from paper or unraveling a mind puzzle – just some of the tasks from previous years – you’ll receive a unique stamp to add to your map.

For scavengers who like a challenge there will be six bonus clues to solve this year! Collect the extra clues from the characters and Capital E staff on your route and work out the answer to our cryptic puzzle. When you have the bonus answer and have collected all your stamps, drop in your completed clue sheet to the Museum of Wellington City & Sea or City Gallery Wellington and 12 lucky scavengers will be drawn at the end of the day to win a special Scavenger Hunt prize pack!

This year there will be lunchtime entertainment at 1pm so bring along a picnic and refuel while watching some of the best local performers. There'll be an amazing prize on offer for the winner of the Scavenger Hunt costume competition - the best dressed Wellington-themed fancy dress, chosen at the lunch time entertainment, will be flying high with a helicopter ride from Helipro!

Get your magnifying glass out, download a map from Capital E's website or pick up a copy on the day, then get ready for your family adventure.

When: Sunday 20 Jan 10am - 4pm (entertainment 1 - 2pm)
Alternative bad weather day: Monday 21 January
Where: Venues along Wellington Waterfront - start the hunt at City Gallery Wellington or Museum of Wellington City & Sea
