Join the world’s biggest egg hunt! Look for 100 giant Whittaker’s eggs – there might be one hidden in Te Papa! – and support Starship Children’s Hospital.

One hundred giant eggs have been hidden across Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.  These beautiful eggs have been designed and decorated by leading New Zealand artists and designers. Find as many giant eggs as you can, mark their location on a Big Egg Hunt map, and go in the draw for the ultimate prize!

Where the hunt began

The Big Egg Hunt began in London in 2010 as a way of raising money for charity. It is now held in locations across the world, including London, Dublin, and New York. In New Zealand, it is raising funds for the Starship Foundation, which supports Starship Children’s Health.

Whittakers has been making chocolate in New Zealand for over 100 years.
