About the Big Egg Hunt:

This uber-eggciting egg hunt of massive proportions is hatching in Auckland over Easter. Creatives from jewellery design, leading artists such as Dick Frizzell and Karl Maughan, designers like Trelise Cooper, architects, and others will turn the eggs into works of art.

The eggs will be in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington, with the majority in Central Auckland at landmark destinations and historic places. Whether you stumble upon them or seek them out each one has an individual hashtag and number. Check out the lot of them or better yet - grab a trail map and get looking for the lot. If you are lucky and share the eggs you find on Facebook; you could win the ultimate prize.

What's the deal with Big Egg Hunt NZ? 

Starship Foundation is the beneficiary charity of The Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt. Use the hashtag #BigEggHuntNZ to share news and posts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and look out for volunteers and Heart of the City ambassadors around town as they might have some eggciting treats and maps on hand to share with you.

Tickets to the gala event where the beautiful works of art will be sold off for the benefit of Starship Foundation. Artists represented are David Trubridge, David McCracken, Dick Frizzell, Fiona Pardington (photograph), Gregory O'Brien, Gregor Kregar, Hye Rim Lee, Jeffrey Thomson, John Reynolds, John Pule, Julia Holden, Julia Morison, Karl Maughan, Louise Purvis, Lyonel Grant, Max Gimblett, Michel Tuffery, Nigel Brown, Seraphine Pick, Tanja Jade, Virginia King. Tickets are available and the eggs are online to view.
