They will be required to visit and identify places of interest in Melbourne and experience an ‘Amazing Race Challenge 2021’.

On the day, the children are to bring a drink bottle of water. They can bring their lunch in a backpack or may choose to purchase lunch in the city focusing on healthy options; children will not be able to buy food from any fast food outlets such as McDonalds, KFC, Subway etc.
