Pirate Treasure Hunt

This fun pirate treasure hunt was designed as a school holiday activation that would work effectively during the social distancing and gathering limits in place due to COVID-19.


Four colourful, themed pods were spread throughout the Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre and were linked to a treasure map designed by the Centre.

Participants visited each of the pods to find the answers to questions on the map. When they had all the answers, they received a small pirate related gift. The pirate pods made great photo backgrounds and there were prizes available for participants that posted their images to social media.

By locating the pods around the centre, participants were automatically spread out and were able to maintain distances as required under the current government guidelines. This also encouraged visitors to move throughout the entire centre, maximising foot traffic to all areas.
