Enjoy scavenger hunt at Melville Koppies

If a scavenger hunt is not your thing, choose from a 5km self-guided hike, a 3km self-guided heritage trail, or just guide yourselves across the 55-hectare nature reserve.

Melville Koppies is always looking for new things to attract visitors so they are busy developing a scavenger hunt.

Melville Koppies volunteer Jenny Grice said two visitors who braved a cloudy Sunday tried it out and loved it.

They have suggested some tweaks and want to bring their friends too.

“Come try it out for yourselves,” said Grice.
