Secret tours will be held across the Sydney CBD this weekend with $10,000 worth of vouchers up for grabs for the first people to solve the riddles and unlock the clues.
The Secret City Trails Sydney website is part of the City Revitalisation Innovation Challenge, supported by Transport for NSW, to encourage people back into the CBD.
The initiative will help people rediscover everything Sydney has to offer and give it a much-needed jump-start.
With the pandemic shifting working patterns the NSW government is looking at new and innovative ways to entice people back to into the city.
This new and creative project will help more people rediscover the hidden gems of our city to support businesses and jobs in the CBD.
The challenge is about giving people exciting new reasons to head into the city and these unique experiences give people that extra reason to venture out of their suburb and into the CBD.
The Secret City Trails Sydney will see participants discover the city through self-guided walks and by solving riddles to unlock curious stories about local landmarks. The first 2,000 people to complete a trail will receive $5 to spend at the final destination, on a coffee, ice cream or as a discount off the total bill.
The CBD will also play host to an outdoor art gallery called, ‘I Came to See’, a joint initiative with City of Sydney featuring work from Australian artists.
