    Received the Mystery Picnic as a birthday present, not knowing what to expect, hence, the name I was really impressed. Visiting very local spots around Matakana it was great to explore the region and actually visit some new places (not … More the very touristy spots). Picnic items were delicious and super high quality. Would recommend to others! Note: Best to make sure you allocate the whole day to the trip as can spend more time in each destination.

    Absolutely epic day. Thank you Philippa for organising such a fun event. We received a family mystery picnic as a Christmas gift and it would have to be one of THE coolest gifts we've ever received! Couldn't recommend this highly … More enough!! A beautiful sunny day too!! 🙂

    Fun mystery day out exploring Matakana and surrounding area. The kids enjoyed solving the clues and the destinations are family friendly. The food is delicious too! Great way to support local.

    This was bought as a birthday present for my husband. We had no idea what it was or what it was all about.
    We booked a weekend stay in Matakana and included a couple of friends and off we went.
    First stop was to pick up the first bits
    … More and the clues. Following riddles and puzzles etc. We went to different places picking up bits along the way.
    What a cool experience, it took us about 4 1/2 hours, went to some lovely places and did different activities. We also just took our time to enjoy the places, getting picnic chairs out to sit on the beach and have a drink part way through.
    We all throughly enjoyed it, if you do this book the day out, take the time to chat to the awesome people along the way and enjoy the scenery and experience.
    Would definitely do it again if they change the clues/places etc. A lot of fun and something so different.
