CHILDREN love a good treasure hunt.

Imagine their smiles when they join a community-wide treasure hunt in central Grafton, complete with a treasure map and fun things to do along the way.

The Friends of the Grafton Regional Gallery are hosting a hunt for treasure on Sunday afternoon as part of their International Museum Open Day celebrations.

The hunt, free of charge, will begin at the Grafton Regional Gallery, where parents and local history enthusiasts can pick up the treasure map after 1pm.

The map will guide them on a journey on foot around the city, with treasures to be found at Schaeffer House, the Christ Church Cathedral, Arcola B&B and many more places.

Using the map, people will look for clues in the Central Business District and take part in the art activities, games, tours and more at each of the stops. Children will have the opportunity to win prizes and be creative.

The program will finish with a host of activities and afternoon tea back at the gallery.

It's an afternoon to enjoy all the attractions of the beautiful city of Grafton, and join the family for fun and adventure.

Clarence Valley Council education and public programs officer, Rose Marin, has spent six months fine-tuning the program and is looking forward to many families joining the afternoon of fun.

“Kids will be able to find quirky things and learn about their history,” she said.

“They will also have the opportunity to do fun activities at each stop, like build a plasticine model of Christ Church Cathedral,” Rose said.

Using objects similar to those on the left of the page, there will be a guess-what-the-object-is-used-for section of the walk at Schaeffer House.
