Big cheers to @SamStreetr who found the Zone 2 Gift in this massive Week 40! It was tucked behind the noticeboard at the top of the walkway to Puffing Billy, in Belgrave. Dot hid this one, and hoped that no-one would find it before the hunt began.

Week 40 Zone 1 Clues and Solutions

Congrats to @Reynardo_Red and @Camachri, who found the Zone 1 gift beside Hartwell Station on the Alamein line after following a number of leads and slowly eliminating the other possibilities.

The team of @Pelagikat and @Cefiar hid this gift, and certainly applied great geekish knowledge to create the clues.

Week 40 CBD Gift – Clues and Solution

This week was full of excitement, and once @RebeccaMCC19 found the gift, the joy level flew even higher!

This gift was hidden by the team of @JB_AU and @KevieD, who decided on the Alexandra Gardens on the south side of the Yarra for their hiding place. Thank you for your hard work as Guest Elves, gentlemen!

At this point, Dot would like to emphasise that all bad puns and terrible jokes are the fault of these two completely. She has taught them well!

Week 39 Clues and Solution

For only the third time in Hidden Gift Melbourne History, the gift has been found on the first day.

Week 38 Clues and Solution

Well done to @Ian_Periwinkle and @Reynardo_Red who found the gift in the grounds of Digital Harbour, at the end of La Trobe St in the Docklands.

It was tucked under some rocks in a rock garden. Originally it was under a safety mat, but we changed that two weeks ago because it looked like it might get moved. (Don’t worry – the place is always fixed before the clues start rolling)
