Scavenger fun

The Great Waihī Beach Scavenger Hunt achieved resounding success during Auckland Anniversary Weekend, organisers said, surpassing previous records with a surge in registrations over previous years.
Each team was presented with 12 clues that guided them through the picturesque landscapes of Waihī Beach.
Among the hidden gems were the Trig Trail, the Instagram-worthy driftwood heart sculpture in Bowentown, and the charming Athenree Homestead, to name but a few. Three teams, drawn at random from those who successfully conquered all twelve clues and challenges, then had the opportunity to unearth cold, hard cash.
Buried within the sand were prizes of $750, $500, and $250. The Ghost of Africa team claimed the top prize. Waihī Beach Events & Promotions events co-ordinator Matt Nicholson said it was “a fantastic turnout and a day full of creativity. The event captured the spirit of adventure and showcased the best of Waihī Beach”.
