The Great Browns Bay Easter Hunt

March 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am April 5, 2021 @ 6:00 pm UTC+12

Bring the kids down to Browns Bay for some Easter fun while exploring the town centre. Coastguard North Shore and Browns Bay businesses invite your youngsters to take part in The Great Browns Bay Easter Hunt any time between 12 March and 5 April 2021.

Anyone who completes the Hunt will have a chance to WIN a ride on the Coastguard North Shore rescue boat. And there’s lots of runner up prizes to be won too! Entry is by donation at any of the sixteen participating shops in Browns Bay when you pick up your little one’s sheet of questions. All proceeds go to Coastguard North Shore.

Here’s how to complete the Hunt:


🟢 Visit any participating shop in Browns Bay to enter and obtain your sheet of questions and a map of the shops. Make your donation.


🟡 Make your way round all of the participating shops to find the answers to the questions in their windows. You will need to visit all of the shops listed in order to complete the answer sheet.


🟠 When you have filled in the answers to the sixteen questions take a photo of your completed answer sheet so that your name can be clearly seen and email it to fundraising@cgns.co.nz


The shops can be visited in any order.


Parental help for the little ones is most welcome (and encouraged).


Visit any of these businesses to start your hunt:



Happy Hunting kids!
