Wander through Melbourne's beautiful garden precinct on this self-guided walking tour. Collect clues and solve puzzles to reveal a surprise destination - an iconic establishment of Melbourne's food scene.

Starting at the Shrine of Remembrance, you'll wander through the Royal Botanic Gardens, King's Domain and Queen Victoria Gardens. Along the way you'll discover moving monuments and stunning natural beauty. A perfect way to unplug and spend quality time with your friends and family.

Wondering what to do with your family this weekend? This is an ideal activity to get your kids out into nature. They will learn to read maps and follow directions. They will use their brains and eyes to find clues. Help them to build resilience when they can't find a clue the first time. 

A reward awaits at the end of your Quest. The clues you find will lead you to a surprise dining experience. Each venue is hand picked by our founder for its quality, service, and essential Melbourne-ness. What an adventurous way to experience Australia's food capital!
