FAQs

EVENT

How do I play?

Download the Find the Treasure app, register your details, and select an event to start your adventure. Once your chosen event has gone live you’ll journey through a series of quests to discover new and exciting places and have your brain tested by creative challenges you’ll just love.

What is more – you’ll discover sweet coupon deals for local cafes & businesses to use during your adventure!

How do I win?

Conquer all of the quests in the allotted time and go in a draw to win the treasure! There will also be cool prizes for a whole bunch of other stuff like best dressed and quickest quest. Just focus on having fun – the rest is on us!

What do the quests involve?

We spend many hours designing the quests so that they are fun, immersive and challenging. We don’t want to give it all away, but they may include riddles, games, crosswords and trivia.

Is it like Geocaching?

It’s like Geocaching in that it encourages you to get outside and explore but you also have to solve quests (puzzles, crytpograms, riddles, who am I etc…) to find the location, rather than the coordinates being given to you. It also has live leaderboards to track your progress and a super accurate location service – the first of its kind!

When does my event start?

Download the Find the Treasure to see current event details as well as, news, leader boards, quests and your personal profile.

Is the event timed?

Find the Treasure fosters a culture treasuring the here and now, but we also know sometimes a little competition is fun too! The entire event, as well as each individual quest, will be timed with leader boards to see how your adventure is going.

How long does it take?

The events could be completed in a day if you hurry, however, Find the Treasure has been founded to help people to slow down, observe and appreciate all that life has to offer. Life’s too short not to treasure the present. So we challenge you to enjoy each location and take your time.

Do I need to be a world class athlete and train like crazy to take part?

Hell no! Find the Treasure is about instilling happiness, energy and excitement into people’s lives not taking it away! But seriously, all of the locations are suitable for a person of average fitness. So don’t sweat it!

Can I take part with a stroller and my kids?

Look at you go! Ain’t nothing gonna break your stride! The event may include hinterland, rainforest and beach locations. Whilst all the quests will be on designated walking paths it might be a little tricky to navigate with a stroller.  We suggest that you bring a friend along who will be able to help you through trickier parts of the event.

Is the course wheel-chair friendly?

We would love everyone to share in the fun and excitement that our events bring. Many of the locations are on uneven and changing terrain however, so please keep this in mind. We suggest an all-terrain wheelchair or to bring a friend along who will be able to help you complete certain locations.

Can I bring my scooter or bike?

Our events are big…real big, that is – they cover a large geographical area! Whilst we always encourage healthy living it may take you a while to finish the event. But by all means scooter away if the location is near by.

Can I bring my dog/cat/turtle?

We know it’s going to be hard to break it to your best and furriest friend but no animals are permitted at any of our events. Tummy rubs will make everything better though…for your pet!

Is water supplied?

We encourage all FTT peeps to bring a bottle of water with them to keep hydrated. There are also water facilities at some locations to re-fill, relax and rewind.

Is there an age limit?

There are no age restrictions at the event! We only ask those participants 15 years and younger to be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Monetary prizes are not able to be awarded to minors so will be awarded to the parent or guardian.

Can I take photos or film at the event?

Find the Treasure events are a great opportunity to take photos and we welcome anyone to photograph or film at our event for PERSONAL use only. So please, come along, enjoy the event and take photos until your heart is content.

Use #mytreasureis to upload your photos and go in the draw to win loads of cool prizes
