Choose your Amazing Race

Choose from one of our prepared Brisbane or Gold Coast courses below or talk to us about a private group route especially for you. All of our courses are easily walked & are designed for all fitness levels.

Brisbane Botanic Gardens

This is one of our most scenic courses, its a great course to really take in all that the Botanic Gardens has to offer, while learning a few things a long the way. Your course will stay on the CBD side of the river.

We can finish your race in either the city centre or across the river in Southbank.

Fortitude Valley

Fortitude Valley is a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat, and heritage-listed properties proudly stand among contemporary buildings.

This is a fantastic course to take you on a journey through the streets and alleys of the Valley with plenty of places to end with a drink!

City and Southbank

This is our most popular Brisbane course, starting in the city centre you will complete checkpoints at some of Brisbane’s iconic squares, before making your way over the Victoria bridge & exploring Southbank.


Our Southbank course is absolutely stunning. One of the shorter races we offer, this race is concentrated to the Southbank area. Teams will search for clues & complete tasks & activities along the picturesque Southbank, finishing at one of the popular venues for a cool drink afterwards.

Gold Coast

Race around the Gold Coast & explore some of the hidden gems around the city. You will also take in the sights of the world’s famous Broadbeach, while completing some exciting checkpoints & activities.

Amazing Mystery Race

The Amazing Race with a mystery twist! Your team will examine a crime scene and need to put the clues together to figure out what has happened. Using those clues, your team with then need to find evidence and witnesses around the city in order to solve the mystery and accuse the guilty party.

With professional actors both at the crime scene and hidden at various “checkpoints” around the course, the storyline unfolds as you speak to more witnesses and discover more clues. This is not a race with checkpoints in a set order, each team can choose to visit different parts of the course in their own order – navigation strategy plays as much a part as speed.

Amazing Spy Race

The Amazing Race with an espionage twist! Your team must save the world in a breathtaking race among the underworld of spys, informers and assets.

With professional actors both at the start and hidden at various “checkpoints” around the course, the storyline unfolds as you speak to more “covert operatives” and discover more clues. This is not a race with checkpoints in a set order, each team can choose to visit different parts of the course in their own order – navigation strategy plays as much a part as speed.

Amazing Property Race

The Amazing Property Race is a board game on steroids! Each property on the game board is a real location around your city. Your team will need to strategise to plan your route and property targets and then reach the location before the other teams. Want to buy Sea World – just reach it first!

Beware – if your team is not the first to reach a property, you will need to pay rent to the owner. Own a whole set? Time to buy some houses! Chance and Community Chest cards also play a part and could send you to jail (or winning second prize in a beauty contest!)

Starting at a central location (usually a beer garden or similar), your team will view the “properties” for sale on a metre square game board and receive a pack and instructions. They will then be given a time limit before the Go!

Amazing Active Race

The Amazing Race Active is a specially designed race meant for gyms, active clubs or sports groups and starts and ends at your club or business. It is the Amazing Race – for the fitter competitor!

We come to you and design a completely custom race around your area meaning that you can make the most of your membership.

We love working with private groups to make their special occasion even more unique. The Amazing Race is a great way to celebrate a special birthday, hens/bucks party & everything in between.

We will work closely with you to customise the race to enhance your race experience.

We can start at any time after 10am and before 2.30pm. For safely reasons, we do need to finish the race before dusk. We can consider a 4pm start with a race shortened to 2 hours.

We have run successful races with team as small as 8.

We cater for all sized groups, from 8 people to 200+ people.

In order to adhere to COVID restrictions, we may seperate a large into smaller groups so that each person can still have a fun, exciting Amazing Race while keeping everyone safe.

The answer is not especially fit. If a person can manage to walk for about an hour they will be fine with the Amazing Race.

We have had people of all ages and sizes enjoy the Amazing Race, even a couple with advanced pregnancies. For people that don’t feel they can walk the full way, we can take them from the start to a mid checkpoint and they can pick up their group for the last sections.

We do offer customised races, however please contact us on 0421 710 409 to discuss logistics as we may already have a planned course near your location that we can help you with.

Our outdoor activities are certainly favourites with our clients and 90% of the time the outdoor option is great and teams have a brilliant time.  However with both storms and heatwaves a factor, we do need options in place to deal with bad forecasts.

In most cases with light rain / showers or temperatures up to 36 degrees we go ahead with the Race as planned.  We have some simple concessions for comfort, such as undercover checkpoints and short cuts if needed. From time to time teams do complete the Race wearing light jackets and really enjoy it.

We routinely do a weather check 48 hours prior to the event and if the forecast is unfavourable we will consult you.  There are generally a couple of options in the case that the weather is not desirable.

We can easily postpone your event to another date that is suitable for your group, or we can look at securing a suitable venue & host an indoor Game Show instead. (Please note that there may be additional fees to hire a venue)

Safety of participants is of paramount importance. Our staff carry compact first aid kits. We also ask the teams to stay together at all times and take care of each other.

All checkpoints are staffed and teams have a mobile number for any problems that arise. Before heading off, our staff ask for a contact number for each team. Participants are always given a choice regarding tasks and no one is forced to do anything they may be uncomfortable with.

You book via a confirmation email with your chosen event, date, numbers, venue and timing included, plus your company details for invoicing purposes.

Upon receiving this confirmation of your event we will invoice a 20% holding deposit due immediately. 9-10 days out from the event you will be invoiced the balance which is due on the day after the event.

We accept direct debit payments or credit cards, via our secure Xero / Stripe payment facility. We take AMEX, Mastercard and Visa.

The 20% deposit is non-refundable, however we do use this as a credit towards a future team building event.
