  • Melbourne is arguably the Sporting Capital of the World...Those born and bred in Melbourne will accept the trophy, those from further afield - interstate or overseas - will challenge for a medal.This energetic adventure has multiple facets which will leave you in no doubt Melbourne's claim is TRUE.We are sporting tragics...


Semreh was a journey man who has circled the globe many times over. 

The moment he arrived in Melbourne he was stumped - bowled over by the energy and sporting prowess of the locals. He considered himself a jack of all trades only to realise he was master of none... in Melbourne, anyway!

Directions too vague, need more information about which way to turn, etc. Never worked out the first challenge, despite typing in what the clue said. Presumed pre-existing knowledge of the area and sporting codes. Multiple missed words and spelling mistakes, like AMMI instead of AAMI.
