Event details:

Christmas is on the way and it’s time for another Melbourne City Christmas Treasure Hunt! Return to the magical world of Mitchell Toy with an adventure inspired by his new picture book The Midnight Tram Flies Again.

Collect a free treasure map from Mary Martin Bookshop in Southbank and embark on a quest for clues among Melbourne’s hidden laneways.

The treasure map was designed by local children’s author and illustrator Mitchell Toy. Toy has also created a stunning Christmas illustration on the bookshop window featuring characters from the book and a final clue.

The treasure hunt begins and ends at Mary Martin Bookshop and is aimed at children aged between 5 and 12 years, although all are welcome to take part. This year’s route takes approximately 90-minutes to complete and includes short stretches by tram.

Children who complete the treasure hunt and solve the riddle receive a treasure bag of sweets and the chance to win a prize in the Golden Bookmark lucky dip.
