This brilliant scavenger hunt team activity will show your team the best of Sydney.
We took the mean and nasty parts out of the Amazing Race to create the perfect fun
and energising team activity. It includes mental stimulation, some (light) physical
challenges, creativity and healthy competition. Talked about for months afterward,
it is far and away our most popular event -
Teams leave the start at intervals with a map and their first clue, which they must crack to determine their destination. At each fully staffed check point there will be a challenge to test team resources.
One of our most popular challenges is the "photo finish", where we give teams a list of things and poses to photograph. We send all these photos on to you, which provides a great memento of the day. (The photos on the left come from this task).
Afterwards, teams generally wind down with a few drinks whilst we tally up the scores and name the winning team.

Though, the Gardens is the most popular, the Amazing Race can also be staged in any of these fantastic locations:
The Rocks is also a fantastic race, through some of the most buzzing parts of the City and including the beauty of Observatory Hill. This race does include some inclines and tends to be the best choice for active teams. We start at Lang park near Wynyard.
This is a simple and flat course that does a circle around Cockle Bay, Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour and Pyrmont Bridge, generally stopping for a drink on the west side of the City. It is a flat course with no streetscapes in an area that radiates energy.
Includes historic Pyrmont, Union Square, foreshore and Pyrmont Park, finishing in
the buzz of Darling Harbour. Read more and see more pictures here
