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.

Dates: Wednesday 23 June – Sunday 11 July 2021 (weather permitting)
Times: 9.30 am to 3.30 pm daily – NB Last entry at 3pm
Cost: $5 per child. FREE for under 3s and accompanying parents/ carers.

Each entry fee entitles one child to a Treasure Bag to decorate and a wrist band for entry into the Treasure Hunt sandpit.

Bookings: Not required. Pay at the Gallery’s Information Desk on the day. (Cashless sales only)

Please note: Treasure Hunt cannot accommodate vacation care/ childcare groups of more than 12 children. For groups of 12 or less, please email your booking enquiry to [email protected]

Age Group: Recommended for ages 3 – 8 years. Children must be accompanied by a parent/ carer.

*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.

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.
