About

The Burnet Institute's fight against The ‘Big Three’: HIV, TB and malaria, some of the world’s worst infectious diseases which cause the death of seven million people each year.

What is the Romp?

Part treasure hunt, part ‘Amazing Race’, part puzzle – the Melbourne City Romp is a charity fundraising event like no other!

Armed with a map, clue sheet and mobile phone, teams of 2-6 Rompers attempt to solve challenges at Checkpoints located at iconic venues and quirky locations across Melbourne. Your team will face a range of challenges involving trivia, history, mathematics, geography, observation and physical endeavours. Teamwork is the key to success on Romp Day!

Burnet’s flagship fundraising event is accessible for all – no matter what your age, gender or fitness level. Enter a team in one of the four categories; family and friends, schools, universities or corporates - and share a great day out, discovering aspects of Melbourne you never knew existed. Up to 20,000 Rompers from all over Australia are expected to take part!

Rompers are encouraged to raise funds for Burnet Institute’s Romp for a Cure initiative. All fundraising by Teams will assist Burnet in its fight against The ‘Big Three’: HIV, TB and malaria, some of the world’s worst infectious diseases which cause the death of seven million people each year.
