Explore Sydney's historic landmarks and hidden secrets
The Secret City invites you to discover the secrets of Sydney through immersive and fun-filled scavenger hunt-style games!

These puzzle-filled urban adventures lead you through the city's best-kept secrets.

It's the perfect activity for all groups and ages - enjoy an epic family day out, an amazing race experience with friends, a date with a difference, a memorable hens party with your BFFs or a great team-building activity with colleagues.

How does it work?

Choose from two experiences:

  • Death On The Rocks: A resident has been found dead after playing a mysterious game. The only way to catch the killer? Join the next round! Solve cryptic and sinister tasks as you work with Sherlock Holmes to try to figure out the identity of the game's nefarious creator. Fail, and they might make you their next victim!

  • Secrets of the CBD: An alternative historic tour of Sydney, solve riddles as you discover everything from the site of an aboriginal ritual contest ground to the birthplace of a coup d'etat that overthrew colonial rule for almost two years, from a lucky boar of ancient origin to a bell-tower that caused five years of controversy. Secrets of the CBD will take you on a puzzle-filled journey around the city's highlights and best-kept secrets.

    Each scavenger hunt can be completed at your own pace. Alongside your team members, you will actively engage with your surroundings to unravel the riddles sent directly to your phones (no apps are required). Plus you will get to take optional breaks at awesome coffee and bar stops and enjoy the city's finest.

    Compete for the top spot on the Sydney leaderboard and larger groups can split into teams, competing head-to-head to create a great competitive atmosphere!
