The treasure was buried at a rest stop on the Brand Hwy and once we had found the rest stop we set off following the clues to the treasure. We paced out the steps, found the spot and started digging. After digging for a while we hit a pile of shells and then we knew we were in the right place. A bit more digging and we hit the treasure chest (a biscuit tin) and then we had the mammoth task of getting into it. The Hill’s had done a great job of sealing the tin so the contents didn’t get damaged.

Inside the treasure chest we found a note from Pat and Charlie to Josh, Natalie and Sam and a gift for each of the kids. We phoned the Hill’s to tell them we had found the treasure and to thank them before we continued on to Geraldton.
Thank you Pat, Charlie, Emma and Nick for our treasure. It was heaps of fun for all of us.
