What to expect

Follow clues to uncover the history of Sydney and discover the inspiring stories of the people of The Rocks, the stunning views from Observatory Hill, and the ruins at Foundation Park. Get in the shoes of a former convict trying to make a new life for himself in 19th-century Australia, a land of wonders and new possibilities. Are you ready to discover Sydney’s secret?

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked.

Storyline:
You were a convict brought to Australia for the crime of stealing bread and butter from a shop back home in London. You were hungry at the time, unable to find work, and alone. Your only family, your mother, died two years before. You were in prison for 3 years, but today is your first day as a free man.

What can you do? You feel lost and have no idea how to start a new life so far from home. You decide to visit Sydney as a free man for the first time. Maybe here you’ll find some hope.
