Route Markers[]

The order of departure from Ellis Beach are as follows:

  1. David & Jeff (1:47 am)
  2. Reichen & Chip (2:14 am)
  3. Kelly & Jon (2:38 am)

Teams must drive themselves to Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park in Smithfield. There, teams would then be treated to an aboriginal ceremony of fire. They would witness fire and smoke being used to deliver messages, before being given their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the General Aviation Terminal at Cairns Airport, where they will find their next clue.

Choice A: Wing It
Teams would be taken into the air in a small airplane to a height of 10,000 feet, where they would both tandem skydive with an instructor to a sandbar near the Great Barrier Reef located 33 miles away. They could get their next clue from the middle of the water, and then be taken by speedboat to their next destination.

All of the teams chose this task.

Choice B: Wander It
Teams must travel by taxi to a nearby mangrove forest, where they would board a boat located in one of the forest's delta-like inlets. They had to navigate the boat out of the forest, and then direct it to the skydive landing-point to retrieve their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.

Teams must fly to Kona, Hawaii, United States. Upon arrival, they must find Kaulana Bay to search for their next clue.

"Who is a strong swimmer and good with a hammer?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must swim out into the surf to a marked tiki head. Located on the sea floor below the tiki was a heavy rock which they must bring back to shore, and then use a hammer and chisel to break open the rock. Inside, teams would find a capsule with their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

While David & Jeff fell too far behind the other teams and were not seen performing the Roadblock, on The Amazing Race website, Jeff said that he performed the Roadblock.

Teams must drive themselves to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Once there, they would have to find a marked lookout point and follow a marked path on hardened lava to the next route marker.

Teams must fly to Phoenix, Arizona. Upon arrival, teams must find the USS Arizona Memorial to get their next clue.

Teams must make their way to the southeast entrance of Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe to find their next clue.

Teams must solve a complex puzzle. Their only clue was the enigmatic riddle, Happy Valentines Day + White + White. Valentines Day is February 14, or 2/14 in American Date Format, while White + White represented two American Football players whose numbers were retired and displayed on the walls of the stadium. They had to find Wilford "Whizzer" White (Number 33) and Danny White (Number 11). Combining these three values would direct teams to Section 214, Row 33, Seat 11, where they would find their next clue on the bottom.

Teams must make their way to the west entrance of Papago Park and ride bicycles along a marked course to reach the Finish Line.
