Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with this trail set in the spectacular Sydney Botanic gardens.

This self-guided cryptic adventure meanders through the gardens and takes you past the best hidden gems and ultimate view-points. Starting at the fountain gates you will try to find the beating drum of the South Pacific and “go troppo” in the tropics.

Watch out for the Devils Tongue sitting quietly next to the menacing looking Snake Palm and get to see one of the world’s rarest trees. Once you’ve solved several clues you have the option to enjoy a drink at one of the relaxing recommended garden stop offs. Then continue your journey as you take in one of the most iconic views in Sydney, pay a visit to new world succulents and learn about the curious plant named after Lady Gaga.

You will finish near the Art Gallery of New South Wales and upon completion we’ll provide you with your stats and more detailed information of all the places you visited.

Clue hunters agree that The Bloomin Botanic trail is a great way to spend a few hours or make a day of it with your friends and family. What’s not to like? Get your team together, put on those walking shoes and head to the jungle today – It’ll be bloomin’ marvellous!

What Our Happy Customers Have To Say

We’re teachers at a private school and we initially booked the Secret Sydney trail for our students to get to know the city better. In the end, the teachers also joined in the fun cause there was so much about our beloved city that we don’t know! Excellent job, Adventure Clues for keeping us on our toes!

John Lim

This is a really fun way to see parts of Sydney that you probably otherwise would have no idea even existed. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!! Thankyou for a really fun morning for #TeamChrispie

It was the most enjoyable way to explore Sydney at you own pace with a friends. Would defiantly try another trail. 10/10.
