How exciting! The Rainforest Agents of Discovery is about to hit our rainforest roots, just in time for the September school break, promising fun and adventure outdoors, for the whole family. Agents of Discovery is a free digital game that uses GPS technology and will unlock your self-guided Rainforest Mission at the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve in Maleny.
Agents of Discovery is an award-winning, educational mobile gaming platform that uses smartphone technology and augmented reality to get children outdoors and actively engaged with the world around them. The program encourages real learning and participation by motivating kids and their families to explore and learn, through an augmented reality application.

To play, kids become Secret Agents on a Mission to visit participating parks, reserves and other cultural sites. Along the way, they will discover and unlock fun and interesting clues to complete. With every Mission completed, exclusive digital and real-world rewards are earned. The more Missions completed, the more rewards earned.
In the current challenging time and to ensure everyone keeps safe, the Sunshine Coast Council is offering a range of missions that, with a little bit of help from Mum and Dad, may even be completed in your own backyard. Download the app and enjoy becoming a master of sleuthing, an Agent of Discovery.
During the Spring school holidays from Saturday 19 September to Monday 5 October between 7.00am and 6.00pm, head off to the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve to join the Rainforest Discovery hunt and solve challenges in one of the Sunshine Coast's most spectacular locations.
