Have you ever been on a scavenger hunt? That’s the basic idea behind the Puzzle Walks, except it’s all hands-free: a great way to go get out safely, on a self-guided walk. Solve a puzzle with your bubble!
THE LEGEND OF THE STAR OF THE NORTH
This legend forms the basis of the Puzzle Walks. In 1883, as Collingwood was becoming the shipbuilding centre for the Great Lakes, legend tells of a steamer heading for town carrying a very wealthy passenger. Travelling to Collingwood to seek his share of the local business, he held his fortune in the form of a large diamond, known as the Star of the North. Sadly, fate was not on his side as the ship neared the dock.
Can you discover the precise location of the ship’s wreckage and earn your chance at some local Collingwood treasures?
