Boasting seven welcoming towns uniquely positioned on a river, you’ll fall for the St George Region hook, line, and sinker!
We’re so sure, we’re inviting everyone to join us this year and take part in our first-ever St George Region – I Got Hooked Scavenger Hunt.
What’s more, not only will you snag the “I Got Hooked on the St George Region” collectable Key Ring as a memento of your trip, but there are also great prizes up for grabs including return flights for two people on Rex Airlines!
To get involved, simply follow the clues and identify the nominated landmark in each of our seven towns of St George, Dirranbandi, Bollon, Hebel, Thallon, Nindigully and Mungindi.
With each clue you solve, you’ll collect a colourful town Fish Token to add to the special ‘I Got Hooked on St George Region’ Key Ring on which you can proudly display your catch. Anyone who collects all seven tokens will then go into the draw to win.
The Scavenger Hunt will run from 24 May until 30 September 2023 with the winner announced 25th October.
