Well, I must say, I am relieved that this season of The Amazing Race Australia is finally over. It’s been exhausting.
The Final Leg begins as teams are told to make their way to Australia’s capital, Canberra. The first clue contains the Road Block: Who’s the best judge of heights? Upon arrival in Canberra, teams must make their way to Lake Burley Griffin. Here, they must ride a fly board in the water for ten uninterrupted seconds while dressed as judges.
After (what feels like) 146.2 Legs, the Final Three has finally been decided and it is finally the Penultimate Leg. And for this Leg, teams will Race through Sydney.
The Final Four set off on the 22nd Leg of the Race by flying to Broken Hill. Upon arrival, teams must head to the Palace Hotel, spiritual home of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Teams find their next clue next to the Big Heel.
The 21st(!) Leg begins as teams must fly to Dubbo, New South Wales via Sydney. Upon arrival, they must drive to the Old Dubbo Gaol where a guard will throw them into a dark cell. Teams must escape that cell and scale the wall without being caught by patrolling guards.
The Final Five have traveled overnight to Blue Mountains where they will Race on the 20th Leg. To start, teams will immediately face a Road Block: Who looks good in a suit?
The 19th(!) Leg of the Race has teams flying to Sydney and then taking a train to Newcastle. While on the train to Newcastle, the teams reflect on their Race so far, including how the “Awesome Foursome” alliance hope to get rid of the weak Chris & Aleisha who are not in their clique.
The 18th Leg begins back in Hobart as teams must drive themselves to the historic town of Ross. Brendon & Jackson’s Salvage is that they are required to only complete half of each task. Chris & Aleisha’s Sabotage, meanwhile, is to have to balloons tied to themselves all day.
The Race continues in Tasmania at Lake Pedder. From here, teams will drive to Gordon Dam where they must drop a basketball into a net 140 meters below.
The final seven teams continue the Race by flying to Hobart, Tasmania. Upon arrival, teams must drive themselves to Wrest Point Hotel. Here, teams will sloppily put on “70s attire” and build a house of cards that is five stories tall.
