Holiday fun across BOP

Christian Wright explores the local streams around Rotorua as part of a school holiday scavenger hunt.

Scavenger hunts across the Bay of Plenty’s bush, lake and beach reserves are sure to keep the kids busy these April school holidays, as well as showcase the natural gems of our region.

The scavenger hunts, located at McLaren Falls Park, TECT All Terrain Park, Blue Lake and Ōhope Beach, encourage participants to solve clues, take photos and get out there to discover our local reserves and parks.

Sport Bay of Plenty’s recreation team leader Sonia Lynds says the scavenger hunts are a fun and engaging way to explore parks of high conservation value across the Bay of Plenty, including areas that aren’t necessarily well known.

“We’re so lucky to have a range of great parks and reserves to explore in our own backyard.

“The scavenger hunts have been one of our most popular activities encouraging people to get out and explore these regions, and they’re a great excuse to gather the whānau and have some fun outdoors.”

To take part people just need to download clues from the Virtually on Track website. Spot prizes are available for entries submitted between 13 and 28 April.

The April School Holiday Scavenger Hunts are available for:

McLaren Falls Park, Tauranga

TECT All Terrain Park (Te Rerenga walk)

Blue Lake

Ōhope Beach (Fairbrother Loop)

Clues are available at
