There’s nothing like an outdoor picnic to bring the vibes when you’re planning a romantic date, or even just a catch up with friends. The fresh air, the delicious picnic spread, the lush scenery (if you’ve picked your spot right)—it really is a magical way to spend an afternoon. But if picnicking has gotten a bit old hat lately, or you want to really level up your next outdoor rendezvous, we’ve got just the experience for you.
Amazing Co, creators of epic experiences for every occasion and every couple or crew, have come up with a picnic adventure that’s part scavenger hunt, part foodie tour and altogether a fun-filled day out. Dubbed the Mystery Picnic, this self-guided experience will see you solving clues and riddles to figure out the locations of local artisan producers, where you’ll pick up delicious goodies to create an amazing picnic spread.
How does it work? Well, you pick your date and your preferred location, with New Farm, Paddington and South Bank to choose from, or even Redcliffe or Tamborine Mountain if you want to go further afield. Then on the day, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got good walking shoes on (you can also jump on a Beam or Neuron scooter if you prefer), because a series of clues will lead you to multiple different secret locations around the area where you’ll pick up a heap of goodies, exploring a ‘burb you might not have seen much of in the meantime. Once you’ve got them all, you’ll be directed to a dreamy picnic location, where you can lay out your rug and start feasting.
With Amazing Co having done all the hard work of sourcing your picnic for you, all you need to pack is your picnic blanket and a cooler bag for your goodies—you’ll want to keep them chilled until you’ve found them all. There is some walking involved, but your clues will even provide options for public transport or suggest alternatives for longer stretches—or you can just enjoy the chance to work up an appetite.
