The Ramble can best be described as a car rally / treasure hunt on foot (no running allowed), with teams of costumed participants exploring the parks, malls and streets of the Chevron Island, across the Green Bridge, around the HOTA Cultural Precinct and surrounding area, following clues to locate 25 to 30 checkpoints in 2 hours.  At each checkpoint, the team use the Gold Coast Ramble App to receive a question to answer about the immediate area – this could relate to the heritage, the natural environment, street art or current infrastructure.  What better way to discover and learn about the lesser-visited nooks and crannies of the City of Gold Coast?  Teams are directed to places of historical interest, to cultural precincts and newer developments, highlighting local stories and the diversity of each of the communities explored.
