Welcome to the Great Winter Scavenger Hunt. Your goal is to score as many points as you can by unlocking and completing tasks at GPS activated checkpoints around East Perth.
There are two trails for you to complete:
- Yellow Trail: Which will take you throughout the Claisebrook Area
- Blue Trail: Which will take you throughout the East Perth Ares
Each trail should take you approximately 2-3 hours to complete.
We encourage you to use the Free Public Transport within the city to help you get around or feel free to ride your bikes or walk around.
Please go at your own leisure as it is not a race. You are free to visit & complete these checkpoints and tasks in any order and each task is worth a different number of points. Complete as much or as little as you want. Ideally the hunt is designed for you to do over a number of days but if you’re feeling up for the challenge, you’re most welcome to complete all checkpoints in one day.
Along the way, you will unlock some offers from some of the local businesses. Please support them as they have kindly donated prizes that can be won for this Scavenger Hunt.
There are over $6000 in prizes to be won. To go into the draw and be in the running for a prize, you must earn more than 1000 points during the hunt.
Please Note: The game has been set to auto score which means you will be allocated full points for all photo and video tasks you submit. All photos and videos will be reviewed by the game moderators and points will be removed or deducted if you have not met the brief or have submitted incorrect content for the task.
This event has been created as a joint project between the East Perth Community Group & Scavenger Hunts Australia and it has been kindly supported by the City of Perth.
Please Note: Even though the game is open 24 hours and you are free to play when ever you like, please be aware that some of the business involved in the Great Winter Scavenger Hunt may not be open on the day or at the time you are playing so you may need to come back during their open times to redeem any offers or complete certain tasks.
How To Play:
Go to your map screen and navigate to the hotspots. To release tasks you must visit the Star Checkpoints on the map. When you are within a certain radius of these checkpoints they will unlock and the tasks will be released into the tasks area within the app.
Each task completed will be sent back to the game facilitator for verification and scoring. The game facilitator has the power to alter scores and issue bonus points. Please take all photos and videos within the app. If you are not happy with a photo or video you have taken, you do have the option of retaking it before pressing submit.
