What people are saying about New South Wales

This was a great activity for me and my son. We found that a lot of things to do in Melbourne appear to be closed on mondays and Tuesdays so we were not sure what to do. This was our 1st visit to Melbourne and navigating round was very daunting. This tour gave us an hour and a half of fun whilst visiting lots of great landmarks. There was also the opportunity to have a sneaky beer along the way. Would definitely recommend and the price is less then a schooner. Will definitely use the app again.

Loved the Bloomin' Botanic trail. The adventure clues we played as teams with family and it was nice to stop at the café which is located on the route - Super fun solving the clues and discovering new parts of Sydney!

Played this scavenger hunt as part of a corporate team building day with our company, Was great fun solving the clues and having fun with colleagues. Look forward to trying more adventures soon.

Great experience. We learnt a lot. Took us an extra half hour so allow extra time to complete. (We are not from Sydney). Would appreciate if we could be sent a copy of the story to read later.

A fantastic way to spend some time in Sydney. We saw parts of The Rocks we never saw before and played the adventure with friends withs some friendly competition. Definitely recommend.
