Get kids outdoors with some healthy, educational fun plus WIN

Fed up with the lure of the screen? Looking for some healthy, fresh air, educational fun? Try a “PuzzleTrail”!

PuzzleTrails are downloadable, puzzle-themed, self-guided walking trails in some of Sydney’s most well-known locations and parks, such as The Harbour Bridge and Opera House, The Rocks, Royal Botanic Gardens and Narrabeen Lagoon.

If you have kids, you may know the painful scene. You start with a cheerful question “Who wants to go for a nice walk?” There follows a peel of laughter and the sudden emptying of the room. Overcoming the lure of the screen requires something fabulously fun and just a little bit different!

With 3 different puzzle types, from heinous murders where you must unravel Whoidunit, quizes which have you finding and solving hidden clues to complete a location themed puzzle, to dastardly hi-tech crimes involving spies and villains, where you must be the code cracker that stops the mayhem and destruction. There is something for every taste, age and skill level.

The kids will love following the directions and looking for clues and everyone also gets to learn some fun facts about the location you are visiting. Plus conveniences are pointed out en-route and there’s usually a coffee shop or two to stop at!

This is great way to enjoy all that Sydney has to offer, whilst keeping the family entertained. The trails are suitable for kids of all ages and are equally enjoyed by adults and tourists alike, as they offer adventure in addition to traditional sightseeing.
