Get out and about on your own or with the kids and search for treasure. This is a great activity for birthday parties and will even entertain the older kids.

It is possibly the only outdoor recreation service of its kind in Australia. It is a unique experience and it is suitable for the average walker. No need to be Bear Grylls or an Olympian.

Here's how it works:
You make an appointment to meet up at a local cafe in Daylesford or at Lake Daylesford to have your introduction, instructions and be handed your GPS unit.

Then you are off in search of your treasure.

Choose from several walks to suit all desires and fitness levels, you can even go up to a 10pm walk for the truly dedicated.

You will be searching for 12 hidden objects around Central Springs and Lake Daylesford.

There's even a puzzle to solve.

How long:
Generally it takes around 1.5hrs to complete the hunt. You could even enjoy a picnic at the lake on your way or perhaps a visit to the hall of fame.

You can even take a GPS guided walk through wombat forest.

Even for beginners:
Unlike trekking or walking with paper maps, by using a GPS you can determine accurately where you are at all times and the direction you should be going in. Even beginners can walk independently and with confidence anywhere; even remote parts of the forest.

When:
Available weekends, school holidays or by appointment.

Cost:
40 per family, $12.50 individuals (13years and above)

No treasure hunting - just walks please:
Sure, you can select a GPS with walking trail maps and use it to guide you on some terrific walks around the areas
