X marks spot: Tweed gallery is treasure trove for kids

MELBOURNE holiday maker Eddie Becchio is one of many little ones to take part in the Tweed Regional Art Gallery's treasure map and trail.

The interactive adventure is designed for children aged five and up, and will be held at the gallery until the school holidays come to an end on Sunday.

All children who come to the gallery are given a map, pencil and clipboard from the front desk and invited to go on a special journey through the gallery, alone or in a team of friends.

With the help of their parents they will have to answer quizzes and clues, to find the hidden treasure.

Only the successful buccaneers will earn a free treasure at the end.

The Kids' Summer Art Treasure Map and Trail offers parents a way to explore the gallery's collection exhibitions while engaging young children.

Currently on show is Karen Stone's exhibit What Garden Do I Come From?, Bernard Ollis' Travellers Tales from his painting trips to Paris and An Elemental Approach - various works from the Tweed River Art Gallery's collection.
