Our team has created a giant scavenger hunt around Perth City! Starting from Elizabeth Quay (in front of the large white statue with concentric circles), you and your team will race around, collecting clues, taking pictures, seeing sights and completing little tasks! The first couple of teams to return will win a grand prize.

You are welcome to join us in teams of 3-5, or we will allocate them on the day, you can work with friends or meet new people and forge your friendship as you work through the challenges.

When the teams return to the final destination, you can grab some Subway catered lunch and cool down in the shade, and then venture out for an afternoon of exploring the city! Please inform us of any dietary requirements or allergies for the lunch catering order (vegetarian and halal are already catered for).

Please bring a water bottle and hat, and wear sunscreen as it will be a hot day. We encourage students not to bring valuable items including jewellery or identity documents like passports, unless they are being used as photo ID.
