School Holidays Go out of this world with Capital E's Great Scavenger Hunt

You’re off to great places! Today is your Day! Your mountain is waiting, So... Get on your way! Dr Seuss

Wellington's favourite family day out is going interstellar this Wellington Anniversary weekend. Capital E's Great Scavenger Hunt is back for its seventh edition, with more destinations than ever. Intrepid explorers will visit the final frontier as they hunt for clues and complete missions. Wellington's waterfront will be taken over by young astronauts, armed with Capital E's special maps, to explore the different 'planets' – exciting organisations that celebrate the region's spirit such as Space Place at Carter Observatory, SPCA and Te Papa. The hunt, which has been a popular feature of Wellington Anniversary weekend since 2010, runs from 10am-4pm on Saturday 21 January. Entry to the Great Scavenger Hunt is by koha, and it takes off with a map, which can be collected from Capital E Central at 4 Queens Wharf or printed of f online beforehand from w w w. Scavengers then visit

the destinations, complete the stellar challenges and collect stamps. Each challenge has two difficulty levels, with a 60-minute or 120-minute course to choose from. Budding astronauts are encouraged to dress in their best intergalacticinspired costumes - there'll be spot prizes on the day for the best dressed and a costume parade at Queens Wharf at 12:45pm. Scavengers who complete all the challenges will go in

the draw to win the ultimate prize pack. There will also be a lunchtime extravaganza under the sails at Queens Wharf from 12pm-1:45pm, complete with entertainment, local food trucks and prizes for the best dressed. In case of rain, the Great Scavenger Hunt will be postponed until Sunday 22 January – keep an eye out on Capital E's Facebook and Twitter and subscribe to their e-newsletter for notification.
