The Amazing Race Australia is a reality game show based on the American CBSseries, The Amazing Race. Australia's Seven Network has purchased the international format rights to the highly successful reality adventure series.[1]


"The US version of The Amazing Race has had a huge following on Seven and we are thrilled to be working with Disney on The Amazing Race: Australia which promises to capture the excitement of the original series.

"Audiences in Australia have shown an enormous appetite for high-quality, locally produced shows in recent years. The Amazing Race: Australia is another great milestone in our long-standing relationship with Channel Seven in bringing programs that resonate with viewers here."[2]

The Race

This section cite the differences between the American version and Australia version only.

The Amazing Race Asia is quite similar to the American edition. The basic premise is the same, namely that teams must follow clues and complete tasks to check in to pit stops in a race around the world. However, some differences between the two versions exist.
