As the anticipation builds for Adelaide's annual Fringe Festival, its organisers are encouraging people to get involved with a wacky state-wide scavenger hunt.

The hunt, run through the mobile app GooseChase, challenges users to complete hundreds of unique missions and puzzles, earning points as they go.

The user who racks up the most points by the end of the festival, which runs from February 17 to March 19, will score a trip for two to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

Tasks include creating a unicorn costume, jumping like a kangaroo across Kangaroo Island's Remarkable Rocks and uncovering a hidden Adelaide car park bearing a wall of matchbox cars.

Adelaide Fringe Festival Director Heath Croall says the scavenger hunt is an opportunity for South Australians and visitors to discover the festival's venues and other interesting spots around the state they may not have known about.

"The game is about completing missions, seeing lots of Fringe shows, earning points and winning prizes," she said.

People can play by downloading the free GooseChase app from the App Store or Google Play, creating a profile and joining the Adelaide Fringe 2017 game.
