Prawn to Be Wild: A science treasure hunt

  • Peninsula Lawns
    Darwin Waterfront, Darwin City NT 0800, Australia

Prawn to Be Wild: A Science Treasure Hunt is a family-friendly activity exploring how science is used in Australia's Northern Prawn Fishery. 

Families will collect a treasure map and work sheet from the registration point. The map will guide participants to complete a series of science-based activities at locations within the Peninsula Lawns.

Navigate the treasure map at your own pace, and return the completed work sheet to the registration point to collect a treasure bag containing take-home activities for kids.

This activity is designed for children ages 6-12. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
