Explore A Secret Side Of Sydney With A Scavenger Hunt From Adventure Clues

  • Kids

One of the great joys of living in one of the best and most beautiful cities in the entire world is the abundance of natural wonders and hidden gems around every corner. People travel across the globe to explore the amazing vistas we have on our doorstep, and we never have to go far for a little adventure right here in our own backyard.

Sydney is bursting with so much to discover that even us locals marvel when we stumble upon a little urban jewel we didn’t know existed! With so much to uncover, there is something special about carving out the time to play a tourist in your own city, especially when we share it with our kids. Add a few cryptic clues to the experience, and things are even more fun.

Adventure Clues was created to do just that. The brainchild of a British ex-pat looking for a unique and inspiring way to explore his new home, he created an easy and exciting app to inspire you and your family to get out and connect with some of the coolest places in town, and have a ball doing it!

Telling the kids you’re going for a long walk around the city might not get their butts in gear, but say you’ve organised a special spy adventure, with clues to unravel, all from the coveted smartphone, and their inner detective will be busting for their first assignment! Perfect for a fun day out, just select a cryptic trail, register your team name, head to the start location and begin your interactive adventure via the app. There are no downloads required, you just need to click on the play button received in the email after purchase. 

Think outside the box deciphering puns, hidden words and anagrams, and search like a private eye scoping buildings, street names and signs to crack the code and complete your mission! Work together as a family to solve mysteries and live out all your super-sleuth fantasies as you unlock the hints that lead you to some of Sydney's best places to visit. There are even time challenges and leaderboards for a more competitive twist.
