27 Jun 2018 - 14 Jul 2018

Experience the thrill of discovery these school holidays!

Start by creating your own treasure bag, then dig for treasure in the massive Treasure Hunt sand pit. What you discover is yours to keep….so fill your treasure bag with jewels, gems and special things.

Treasure Hunt is a playful experience for young children aged 3 – 8 years (and their families)*. It is the perfect way to learn about fossicking and geology while having fun.

NB The Treasure Hunt sandpit will close periodically in the event of heavy rain or extreme weather, but will otherwise continue to operate during light or passing showers. In the event of a full-day cancellation, a notification will be posted to the Gallery’s FaceBook page.

*WARNING: Due to the choking hazard posed by ‘treasure’, this activity is unsuitable for children under 3 years old. A separate safe area is provided to cater to younger siblings under 3 years, admitted free of charge.

Dates:Wednesday 27 June – Saturday 14 July 2018
Times:10am-4pm daily EXCLUDING SUNDAYS
