Time travel back to the underworld streets of the 1920’s and 30’, a time when the rebellious crime lords and ladies ran King’s Cross. By solving the 13 cryptic clues in this infamous area, you’ll follow in the footsteps of Kate and Tilly Devine who peddled their questionable ‘business’ in The Cross. Watch out for the notorious Razorhurst gangs who sloshed ale and slashed, and take a detour past ‘blood alley’.
It’s not all crime and punishment as you’ll become fabulously lost in the trendy subculture of bohemian inner-city life, marvel at the colourful Victorian villas and travel down the secret foodies footpath perfect for a bite to eat! You also have the option to hop into a mysterious-lit speakeasy bar that we recommend along the way – so If you like rich and risqué history coupled with a martini, then tell the girls to slip on their flapper dress and the guys to slide on their fedoras. Prepare for an adventure to be remembered… or forgotten.

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.
