FAQs

How many people per team?

As many as you’d like! Bring your whole posse, or take on the riddles as a solo adventurer. We recommend a team of 4 though – perfect for a car-load.

Can I walk or ride my bike between locations?

We're planning to hold some special Hunts just for walkers and cyclists. Unless we tell you though, you'll need a vehicle to get between locations.

How long does the hunt take?

Approximately 2 hours. Each event is unique, and some riddle locations may be further apart than others. If you’re a super-solver you might have all riddles solved in a hour, but there’s no reason why you can’t take your time and make a day of it.

 

Can I go in there?

There are two general rules that should guide where you can go: 1) Is it a public place? And 2) Is it safe? If the answer to those are yes, then sure! We’ll give you advanced notice if the clues or treasure are inside a building or on private property.

 

Where do I find the clues and treasure?

Clues and the treasure will always be in plain sight, and the treasure will be hidden under loose material (eg leaves/rocks). Remember the GOLDEN RULE: Do not damage anything in search of clues or treasure. 

Do I have to buy a starter pack?

Yes, and we think you’ll love it! The pack is a gorgeous kangaroo leather pouch with a watercolour map of Canberra and its surrounds, a code of conduct and a how-to guide to help you solve clues. When you buy the pack you pick a team name, and we get your email address so we know where to send the clues!
