Join the Deep Blue Treasure Hunt

Do you have beach loving kiddos who would get a kick out of cruising the coastline on a marine trail and interactive treasure hunt?

Well then they’ll have a whale of a time taking part in the Deep Blue Treasure Hunt!

The Deep Blue Treasure Hunt is a FREE app, aimed at kids 13 years and under, launching 8 August 2020, to coincide with this year’s National Science Week theme, ‘Deep Blue Innovations for the future of our Oceans’.

Love your coastline and want to learn more?

The app uses mobile technology and hands-on fun, and consists of over 20 family-friendly activities that are based around coastlines.  Packed full of beachside activities and designed for the whole family, it’s a fun and interactive way for children to learn about their marine environment and contribute positively to its future health.

Developed to replace a planned marine festival at Henley Beach, which was cancelled due to Covid-19, the app is designed to encourage families to come together and really discover their own backyards.

The Deep Blue Treasure Hunt app will go live 8 August 2020 and can be downloaded at deepbluetreasurehunt.com.au 

The event is brought to you by the Marine Discovery Centre and The Science Collective and supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science week.
