Event Details

Treasure Hunt: Hidden in Plain Sight features seven trails for kids to complete to earn a spot in the official MOTAT Adventurers’ Society. Full of exciting challenges, every trail completed earns them a different badge.

Each trail has a theme and a map to help in the search for the hidden items and ultimately solve the mystery.

Each of the five trails at M1 is a little tougher than the last, but perfect for primary to intermediate-aged children (especially if there’s a little help on hand for the youngsters). Plus, head over to M2 for two more trails! There’s an aviation-themed trail and a bonus round featuring the newest character, The Cartographer.

This treasure hunt activity will encourage kids to develop their problem-solving skills, attention to detail and more, while having fun and exploring the MOTAT Collection. A perfect way to spend time these school holidays.
