Experience Summary

Our Family Mystery Picnic Dates is a perfect way to get the family out and about! 

We won’t give too much away - a bit of mystery is part of the experience after all! But we will tell you this: it’s a great way to explore Melbourne and surroundings in a new, interesting way - and you can get the whole family involved! 

The itinerary for the day is pre-planned and booked for you, and throughout the day you and your family will solve clues, puzzles and riddles together to reveal each step of your journey. Each stop will add something to your experience, be it a local delicacy to add in your hamper, or a fun spot for the kids. 

So, what are you waiting for? Time to fill up one of your weekend time blocks with something new! 

Important Information

Your first stop for the day is where you will pick up your basket. The pick-up time is from 9 to 11 am, and then the pace of the day is completely up to you and your date! A few things to note;

  • Reserve around 5-6 hours for the experience

  • You will need a MyKi or comfy shoes to get around on the day

  • Available any day of the week


  • Unique, fun and flexible itinerary

  • Pre-paid tastings and experiences

  • Stunning picnic spread

  • Something fun for the kids to explore as part of your day

* Price covers 2 adults and 2 children ages 12 years and under. The experience is designed with younger kids in mind, so if you are the parent of older kids, we recommend trying the Mystery Picnic designed for friends - check it out here.


How long does the experience go for?

We’ve designed it to be roughly a 5-6 hour round trip, including enjoying your picnic. But you can definitely take longer than this if you want to go on a few detours to explore the region a bit more!

What time should I book the experience for?

The basket pick-up window is between 9 and 11 am, but you can decide your specific start time and your pace for the day! If you want our recommendation, we’d suggest to start your picnic around 9 - 10am. This will give you plenty of time to solve the clues, explore surrounding sites along the way without feeling like you have to rush through the day.

When will I get my clues?

You’ll get your hamper pick up instructions via SMS the day before your picnic. Once you have picked up your hamper, it'll have all your clues, games and puzzles ready to go!

Can I pick the hamper up on a different day to the picnic?

You certainly can! Just make sure you notify us after you have booked your experience so we can make sure everything is ready for you. The only thing to keep in mind is that the hamper comes pre-packed with a base-kit, so it will need to stay in the fridge. We’d recommend you do the experience no later than 2 days after you have picked up the hamper. 

What kind of food will end up in the basket?

We won’t give away too much here, it is part of the mystery after all! But you can safely expect gourmet foods from local artisan producers, including your traditional picnic foods (such as cheese, meats, fruits and crackers etc.). And naturally, as artisan producers will be unique to the different destinations, the final picnic content varies slightly between them.

Can you accommodate for dietary requirements?

Absolutely! Just let us know when you book your picnic, by filling in the form field ‘Dietary Requirements’. We will also tailor the food slightly based on the age of your kids!

I would like to give this as a gift! Do you have any gift vouchers?

Of course! You can purchase a gift voucher directly via our website, which can be used toward any of our experiences. Just pick your amount, write your message, and you’re done!

The recipient can then go to our website, browse our experiences, pick the one they fancy, and even book online using their voucher code.

What is your rescheduling and cancellation policy?

As we pre-plan and book you in for your stops along the way, we need 3 days notice if you wish to reschedule or cancel your experience. 

What is your wet weather policy? 

All our destinations can cater for an indoor picnic spot, so you’ll be able to enjoy your delicious picnic even if it rains! But if you’d prefer to reschedule your picnic due to rain we’ll need 3 days notice, so we encourage you to keep an eye on the forecast in rainier seasons.
