Embark on a scavenger hunt style adventure through Victoria - Safely!

The adventures have been modified from their original version to remove interactions in pubs and other businesses, to remain outside and to allow for effective social distancing. Great fun while social distancing!

It’s your chance to explore, discover and have fun in Victoria during a unique and interactive game. Using a smartphone or tablet as your “tour guide”, family and friends can join you in testing your knowledge, uncover city hotspots, and have lots of fun!

These adventures are great experiences for families, friends, and groups. Race against the clock or simply meander along as you enjoy the experience. How you explore Victoria is entirely up to you!

How it works:

  • You’ll receive a series of clues on the free APP. Each clue will guide you to the next location where you'll solve a puzzle or find a hidden word.
  • Along the way, you'll visit local icons, experience stunning scenery and uncover hidden places.
  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and selected your start date with the tour provider, you’ll receive an email with the instructions and the access code. This happens after you’ve activated your experience on Breakaway Experiences’ website.
  • Download the free APP and use the access code to activate your adventure.
  • Clues are sequential and written assuming you have no knowledge of the town.
  • Submit the correct answer and you will immediately get the next clue. Don’t worry, hints and directions are available, but they’ll cost you a time penalty!
  • Solve all the clues and solve the final mystery!
