17 Outdoor Escape-Room Style Puzzles
As you explore, you'll also solve puzzles with our mascot, Kenny the Koala, that will encourage you to interact with your surroundings to solve the puzzles! You might be deciphering the icons on a street sign to figure out the secret message, or looking around the park to find the hidden items - Kenny needs your help to solve the puzzles! Note that puzzles range in difficulty just like an indoor escape room, so are suitable for both teenagers (10 and up) and adults.

A perfect way to see Sydney. Completed it while shopping, sight seeing and dining. Such a great concept, highly recommend it.
We did the Sydney Highlights tour and thoroughly enjoyed the commentary, it went into just enough detail and gave some entertaining stories of convicts, Aboriginal culture and the Opera House. The puzzles were fun, albeit challenging for some of us - we used the hints to finish some of them off. The bits of music and sound effects etc really made the tour very engaging. Will try and do the bridge one next time
My partner and I took this tour recently and although we have both lived in Sydney our whole lives we were learning a lot along the way. The Puzzles have a good range of difficulty which encourage you to look at your surroundings more in-depth than usual, often finding interesting details of the historical sites you would have looked over otherwise. It is safe to say that both of us are looking forward to the release of more tours!
This tour gives you a fascinating look into how Sydney developed over time. It's packed with information, visuals, and interesting stories that keep you engaged. The app does a great job of explaining everything. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sydney to get a sense of its history and how it became the busy city it is today. We took a few hours to do it at a slow pace. Just keep in mind that there are some steps. Our group had no trouble hearing thanks to using headphones as recommended.
Informative commentary and breathtaking views. I'm a local but never get sick of exploring the harbour, and learnt a few interesting things on the tour too. Lots of fun
