Bundaberg community members are invited to put on their detective hats and take part in Rotaract’s Scavenger Hunt.
Rotaract Club of Bundaberg president Danielle Galvin said the inaugural event to be held on Saturday, 21 November is all about having fun, and all of the community is invited to take part.
“We really wanted to have an event that's accessible and fun for the entire community,” Danielle said.
“I think for most people 2020 has been quite a difficult and challenging year so we really wanted to give the Bundaberg community a fun day out.
“With that in mind we decided to make the event completely free to ensure everyone has the opportunity to attend and have a fun day.”
The idea of Rotaract’s Scavenger Hunt is for teams or individuals to follow the clues to locate and photograph a list of nine items around the Bundaberg Region.
“There is no one right answer for any of the items on the list,” Danielle said.
“For example if the item they were looking for was sunflower then they could find an actual flower, a mural or a different creative solution.
“We do welcome creativity with teams locating these items.
“We just want the community to have a fun day.
“All the members of our club are also members of the community as well, and after a difficult year we really want to give everyone a great day out.”
Rotaract’s Scavenger Hunt open to everyone
Danielle said there were no age limits when it comes to participating as the hunt was designed to be fun for all ages.
“There are also no team size limitations; if people prefer to complete it individually or in a large team, they are welcome to do so,” she said.
“One of the key things we thought about when we were deciding what event we wanted to host was the ability for the event to be COVID safe, and one of the great things about this event is that the teams don't have to be anywhere near each other.
“Since there are many answers for finding the items on the list teams will likely be at different locations around town.
“We think it's really important for the community to still get out and have fun, while being COVID safe, especially after seeing so many annual events people look forward to being cancelled due to COVID.”
