An Adelaide city scavenger hunt


Posted on 05 Aug 2019

Looking for something different to do? Wander the city streets on our fun Scavenger Hunt and discover something new.

This scavenger hunt is designed for fun, laughter, and as an excuse to wander the streets of the city. For safety and to max out the experience, this game is best played when the sun is out, and conditions are dry.

What you will need

  • You will need a minimum of two teams to play this game. Each team should consist of at least two people but the more the merrier we say!
  • A digital device that will let you take photos. For example, a smartphone or a digital camera.
  • Time. Give or take, a couple of hours.
  • A print-out of the Magical Mystery scavenger hunt kit (which includes a city map). Download the kit here.
  • A designated area or place to start from, and to regroup to end the game, like a café, restaurant or wine bar.
  • A fine day.

  3. Using the scavenger hunt list, set out to locate each scavenger item. Record it by taking a photo of your find – at least one team member must appear in at least one of the photos.
  4. Use the city map as a guide to help you get around.
  5. The first team to arrive at the designated regroup area with everything off the scavenger list within the agreed time frame wins!
