Cityseekers is an exciting and fun adventure experience for children aged 10 to 12 years.

Founded by Nami Nelson, Cityseekers offers a range of social and interactive activities that promote and encourage children to build a connection with their local community. This sense of belonging can help children become confident and creative individuals who are active and aware of their communities when they are older.

Cityseekers Adventures invites children to rediscover their local neighbourhood through a treasure hunt style journey. Each experience is unique as the Cityseekers team seamlessly blend the history of the location into the clues and tour stops. As part of the experience, children are given a series of problems and challenges to solve. An example of a problem or challenge could be working together to locate the group on a map. As each problem and challenge is solved, a clue revealing the next location will be unveiled.

Along the way, children will learn about the people who helped develop the area and visit many places of significance. Plus all treasure hunts end at a "mystery challenge" location, where children are will participate in a fun new activity, such as a type of sport or an introduction to sign language. These activities raise awareness of a local community group, artist or business and help build relationships with young people in the area.

The experience is facilitated by friendly Cityseekers supervisors who will ensure children are safe at all times. The tours are held in groups of just 6 to 10 persons and begin at a convenient location and time for children (for example, directly after school). Snacks are provided and children need to bring along a Myki card with a at least $7 credit, plus sunscreen, a hat, a raincoat and umbrella.

Cityseekers recognises the importance of having connected and supported communities. Their activities have been specifically designed to support the connection between young people, their families and their local communities, particularly in urban, high population density areas.

The After School Adventures and holidays, Weekend/Holiday Activities run for 2.5 hours and the participation fee is $35 per child.

Please note After school programs need to be booked as a group from a particular school and Weekend/Holiday Activities are scheduled with a central location and can be booked for individual children.
