Harry Potter Christmas Scavenger Hunt To Happen In Melbourne And Hold My Broomstick

Muggles, gather round, this is our chance.

The City of Melbourne Christmas Festival and JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has united to bring a Magical Christmas Quest to Melbourne on Sunday 15 December.

The Magical Christmas Quest will have Harry Potter fans living their dreams as the whiz around Melbourne searching the city for clues to solve riddles for the chance to win a range of prizes.

The winner (who clearly studies for their O.W.L examinations) get to take home the grand price of a VIP Harry Potter and the Cursed Child experience that includes a pair of tickets to the show (parts 1 and 2) with exclusive backstage access, one nights’ accommodation and a pre-show dinner for two at Melbourne’s Hotel for the Arts, the Sofitel Melbourne and a $500 Myer shopping gift voucher.

Holy Hufflepuff that's a good prize.

Ten runners-up will receive a $100 Gift Finder voucher to contribute towards their Christmas shopping.

“After meeting so many passionate Harry Potter fans this season, we could not be more excited to be spending Christmas in Melbourne,” Harry Potter and the Cursed Child performer Gareth Reeves, said.

“We can’t wait to see the Magical Christmas Quest come to life and to join Melburnians in their race around to some of the Christmas Festival’s iconic destinations dressed in their Harry Potter best.”

Teams and individuals will race around to six iconic Melbourne destinations, solving riddles and completing merry missions at each stop along the way.

Those who successfully scavenger their way around the city and present evidence to elves at the final stop will go into the random prize draw to win a sleigh of prizes.

The first clue will be released at 9am on Sunday 15 December via the Christmas Festival website:

Let us know if you find any of that Liquid Luck.
