Pipi and Pou and the Forgotten Stream: A Walking Adventure

The experience is available anytime between 10am - 4pm and takes - approximately 30 minutes

This walking trail begins in Aotea Square.

Something magical is lurking beneath the streets of Auckland. Horotiu, the taniwha, lives deep underground and he is unhappy, as the stream in his care has been forgotten. Can you help our superheroes, Pipi and Pou, calm him before it’s too late?

Jump into the world of Tim Tipene’s award-winning book series through our digital adventure trail created using PickPath – a new platform for compelling interactive storytelling experiences developed by Aotearoa-based artists.

Pipi and Pou and the Forgotten Stream is an app guided experience starting in Aotea Square and leading families on a short walk down Queen Street and surrounding laneways, and is available on both Android and Apple devices. Along the journey a story will unfold, and you will find activities and clues to help solve the mystery.

Perfect for ages 4-10 and their adults, the experience is best enjoyed in groups of 2 – 6 people. This walking trail will take place outside, so please dress for the weather.

If you have any issues accessing the app on your device, please visit one of our friendly Auckland Writers Festival volunteers in Aotea Square. Please note that only one mobile device is needed per group and headphones are not required for this adventure.

Supported by Heart of the City.



Written by Tim Tipene and featuring the art work of Isobel Te Aho-White.
