Here’s how it works

Sustainability and Environmental Impact

Our business relies on appreciating the beauty and intrigue of urban environments, so the last thing we want to do is leave trash lying around.

We don’t support littering, so we haven’t left any physical objects anywhere for you to find. Instead, we’ve made use of existing buildings, curious city quirks, sculptures, pieces of street art and even street furniture as clues.

The only stuff you’ll leave our Austin scavenger hunts with are fond memories, plenty of knowledge and potentially a place at the top of our leaderboard. 

Oh, and plenty of photos too - don’t forget to send them in to us, we love seeing them and we might even reward you for your efforts…
