Teams must travel by ferry to Macau. Once there, teams had to travel to The Venetian Macao, where they had to don formal attire and play Baccarat with a dealer. Each time teams won a game, they earned a Mahjong lettered tile, and after they won ten games, the tiles must reveal their next location: A-Ma Village, where they would get their next clue.

"Who can crack the animal code?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must have to arrange twelve paper lanterns depicting the animals of the Chinese zodiac in chronological order (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) using clues given to them. Once the animals were in the correct order, a gate opened that allowed teams entrance to the pit stop.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Sam & Renae used the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock, Sam had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass. Mos and Anne-Marie quit the Roadblock and opted to take the 4-hour penalty. Mo & Mos's penalty was applied at the Pit Start of the next leg, while Anne-Marie & Tracy arrived last and were eliminated.

For coming in first place, Richard & Joey won A$10,000.
