🌳Parks Week 2023

Welcome to Parks Week!

Last year’s Park Week was so successful that we’re bringing it back for 2023!
The Parks and Recreation department has hidden five bird and five plant rubbing tiles across a range of parks in Invercargill. We encourage you to go out and find them, record them and claim your limited-edition badge!


Where to look

Thomsons Bush


Seaward Bush


Queens Park

Stirling Point Pilot Station

Estuary Walkway

Ōreti Beach car park

Bluff Hill Lookout


How to enter

Once you’ve found one of our special rubbing tiles, lay your piece of paper over the top and rub a crayon or pencil across to reveal the plant or bird hidden! You can use a piece of paper from home or you can print our special form at the bottom of this page.

You can complete either the birds or the plants to secure your prize but why not do both and get two!

Badges can be collected until Friday 24 March. Just bring your completed entry form to the Invercargill Public Library at 50 Dee Street, CAB at 101 Esk Street, Bluff Service Centre or the Queens Park office by the playground, to receive your limited edition badge(s).

Please note:

  • A minimum number of 3 rubbings are required in order to receive each respective badge.
  • Badges can be collected until Friday 24 March

Have fun in our parks and happy hunting!
