“A Truly Amazing and Fantastic Race around the beautiful city of Sydney”

First of all Fantastic Race Sydney is FUN for everyone!  It’s one of the most unique things to do and unlike anything you’ve ever done before.  In addition this race offers an experience you will never forget.

Here are what some of our racers had to say about “Fantastic Race Sydney”:

“We had so much FUN racing around beautiful Sydney trying to solve the clues as a team working together, especially great bonding with the teenagers!”

“Fun, energetic, challenging and most of all a great way to see Sydney in a whole new different perspective!”

“My family and I enjoyed this unique experience very much. Finding clues around the city to places I’ve never visited before while racing against other teams. Something a little different and a fun way to spend a few hours. Great to get the children off their computers and out and about.”

“As someone who isn’t Australian it was a great way to see some of the places I didn’t know existed.”

If you’re planning a fun family day out in Sydney, but you want to do something a little different this time, we’ve got something different for you.

One of the most fun family things to do in Sydney, our interactive treasure hunt will appeal to any member of your family who has a spirit of adventure, loves solving puzzles and who would love the opportunity to be involved in their own real-life mystery.

It’s one of those family activities Sydney families will love, especially as it gives you chance to really explore the city and see places you’ve probably never seen before.

Family fun in Sydney that will test your mental skills, your team-spirit and your stamina

Intrigued? We bet you are. We offer things to do in Sydney for families who want to push the boundaries but who want to stay on dry land.

Our deviously difficult scavenger hunt will enable you to pit your wits against other teams, following a trail of clues around the city until you finally reach the finish line. Plus, to add an extra level of pressure, you’ll also be working against the clock.

Can your family take the strain? Isn’t it time you found out?

We’re one of the leading Sydney attractions for family time together, and are top of the list when it comes to things to do in Sydney Australia.

Whether you’re visiting the city as a tourist, or you’re a Sydney resident, finding fun family friendly things to do in Sydney Australia can be mind boggling, purely due to the insane amount of activities available. However, we like to think that Fantastic Race offers more than your usual family activity, as it not only gives you an exhilarating adrenaline rush as you battle to get ahead of the competition, but it tests your mental skills, the family bond and endurance too.

Just imagine it now, traveling around Sydney by any means you can, collecting and deciphering clues and deciding on the best course of action. It certainly will bring all your problem-solving skills to the fore, and give you the chance to really explore this wonderful city in a way that makes it entertaining, exciting and somehow much more personal.

Outwit your fellow racers and beat the clock in an epic battle to solve the ultimate puzzle

If you’ve ever thought that you would have done better than Nicholas Cage in National Treasure, or that you could have knocked Tom Hanks into a cocked hat as he struggled to decipher codes, you’re going to get the chance to test your skills and powers of deduction. But, don’t forget, there might be a red herring or two thrown in there for good measure. After all we don’t want to make it too easy.

However, don’t worry if you find yourself struggling – we’ve made the game as family friendly as possible, and so mission control is always available to lend a helping hand. We want to keep families together – not split them apart!

You do need to be relatively fit to take part in our treasure hunt and it’s not suitable for families who still have children in pushchairs, but as long as you can keep going for 3 or 4 hours, you should have no problem completing the course. Don’t forget to bring your own water and, for ease of movement wear, comfortable clothes and flat shoes. You’ll also need to bring along a smart phone with data, together with sunscreen and hats to keep off the glare of the wonderful Sydney sun.

Battle for the ultimate prize – the Fantastic Race Sydney gold medal

Of course, we’ve all heard the saying “it’s not the winning that counts, it’s the taking part” – but all gloves are off when it comes to Fantastic Race. You’ll want to do everything in your power to ensure that you solve the clues and get back to the finish line in the fastest possible time. And, while we can help you with clues, it will cost you penalty points. So, it’s up to you to work out the best strategy for your family to achieve that covetable first place.

And once the race is over, and all teams are safely back home, we’ll host an awards ceremony in a local restaurant where you can relax, partake of tasty nibbles, soft drinks and beers and compare notes while the medals are given out. Who knows, you might even want a rematch with some of the other families taking part. We’re giving you fair warning that our fantastic races are addictive. Don’t say you weren’t warned!

A family activity that gets your kids off their computers and out of the house

One way to ensure that your kids are getting the exercise and fresh air they need is to introduce them to our Fantastic Race. While you may experience a little resistance against being dragged away from their computer, tablet or smart phone, they’ll soon be eager to help solve the clues and race to the finish line.

It’s a great way to foster a competitive spirit, help your family to bond and to find new ways to interact. It’s one of the most rewarding family things to do Sydney Australia has available, so join the growing number of families who are taking part in our fiendishly challenging adventures.

If you’ve got teenagers in the family, you’ll know what it’s like to find suitable things to do in Sydney for families that your teenagers will enjoy.

By signing up for Fantastic Race Sydney, you’ll not only be treating your teens to one of the best family activities Sydney has available, but you can also give them the chance to take control of the proceedings.

It’s the perfect opportunity for a bit of role reversal; let them take charge, work out the clues and navigate the city, but be ready to lend a helping hand when needed. It’s a great way to bond your family together and give your teenagers a taste of responsibility.

Of course, there are many fun family things to do in Sydney, but how many allow you to become the stars of your own action adventure?

If your family is a fan of adventure movies such as the Da Vinci Code and National Treasure, we’re sure you’re going to love racing around the city, solving clues, cracking codes and negotiating your way around the lesser known areas of Sydney.

It’s not just a great way to have some quality time together, but it’s a great way to learn more about this exciting city, and get to explore things and places other than the iconic and famous landmarks that usually come to mind when you think about Sydney.

Need exciting family friendly things to do in Sydney?

As visitors to the city, you’re going to be overwhelmed with the choice of things to see and do. But if you’re looking for unique things to do in Australia, Sydney Fantastic Race will give you a taste of Sydney that few visitors usually get to see.

So, when you’re busy scouring the internet for things to do in Sydney Australia, it’s time to think outside the box and find an activity that will not only keep your teenagers happy but that will give you as many chances as possible to get to see the real city of Sydney.

After all, it’s not about the winning; it’s about the taking part, isn’t it? Oh, who are we kidding?
