The venue is on the first floor, accessed via a private entrance, with both lift and stairs.

As part of the Anniversary festivities, we invite you and your families and friends to join us in our CartoChallenge, a walking quiz game around the Wellington CBD and waterfront.
The CartoChallenge will be run – rain or shine – on Saturday, 27 February 2021, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Smartphones or another device with Internet access and a QR reader are required. You will be guided to seven locations of cartographic significance across central Wellington.
On the day, come to Lambton Quay bus station Stop A (next to Rutherford House and the Railway Station subway) at 10 a.m. to register your team and begin the challenge. Each checkpoint will require answering three quiz questions and scanning the checkpoint QR code for a password to unlock the next location. The questions will be suitable for all ages. On completing the quiz, your team must submit your answers for scoring to be in to win a special prize for the most correct answers. There will also be spot prizes at the finish line!
Each team will have until 12 p.m. to navigate to each checkpoint and complete the CartoChallenge. This is a completion game, not a race, and the route should be comfortably walkable by those with small children in 1-1.5 hours.
We look forward to seeing you on the CartoChallenge trail!
