Brush up for the Itty Bitty adventure of Sydney
Sydney is home to some pretty amazing parks and spots for families and people of all ages to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. These school holidays, over September and October, why not join in on the idea of discovering some of the more hidden treasures or parks with Pocket-Sized Precincts.

Pocket-Sized precincts, supported by the City of Sydney and the Fringe Festival, is an exciting mix of adventure, creativity and outdoor activities that will be sure to get the kids to put the gadgets down and go outdoors to explore the wonderful city in which they live.

The quest is a treasure hunt over 10 participating suburbs, where contestants are to find clues at designated spots to ignite their imagination and explore Sydney, and maybe lesser known places whilst you're at it. The idea aims to bring more attention to local businesses, green spaces and to promote interest in everyone's own imagination through direct interaction.

This is a great thing that isn't just closed to kids. Pocket-Sized Precincts also encourages families, couples, singles, groups and teams to get involved in the micro-adventure. The best things about this challenge is that it is completely free and open to all members of the community. Secondly, you can do it all at your own pace. To do it all in a day it would take: By car, approximately 1-2 hours, by bicycle around 2-3 hours, public transport & walking 3-4 hours or if you're feeling energetic, you can walk the whole thing and it would take between 4-5 hours. But as the event runs from September 24th to October 9th, you are able to space it out as much or as little as you like.

The competition in relation to the event is also open and required of all participants. Each person is hoped to submit a piece from their own imagination that incorporates all that is seen throughout the challenge. The piece will be unique to each person and all artworks will be judged by a panel based on artistic merit and level of imagination.

There will be so many prizes to be won in both age groups and by the sponsors of the event. And the organisers have given a bit of extra time until Sunday October 16th to have your masterpieces ready.

For more information on this fantastic event, you can head to their website: Pocket Sized Precincts. You will find all the information, maps, plus competition and prize details on their website. Happy treasure hunting!
