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.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Brisbane Amazing Race is operated by Brisbane’s leading team building activities supplier, Tailored Team Building. We offer a huge range of team bonding events, of which the Amazing Race is the best seller.

We operate Corporate Amazing Race Australia wide, so if are you having a conference or retreat somewhere outside of Brisbane, don’t worry – get in touch & we will design & plan out a great Amazing Race for you & your team.

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.

One of the main differences between Tailored Team Building & other team bonding companies is that we offer a zoom chat with you prior to your event so we can plan out the perfect event for you & your team.

We can start at any time after 10am and before 2.30pm (winter) and 4:00pm (summer). For safety reasons (and its more fun while you can see) we usually recommend finishing your race prior to the sun setting if possible.

We strongly recommend that teams wear comfortable clothing & footwear. Our courses cover approximately 3-6kms each so we encourage people to be comfortable. We also recommend that teams leave handbags & personal items at their office as we are unable to leave them at the start of the race.

ABSOLUTELY!

We love it (and encourage it) teams to dress up. We generally use colours to determine the different teams, we would be happy to send through the list of colours for you race prior to your start so you can tell the teams the colours to dress up in.

We cater for all sized groups, from 8 people to 300+ people….in fact why stop there….

To date we have designed & hosted the Amazing Race for groups well over 300 people. So, no matter what group size you have get in touch & we we design the perfect team bonding event.

The Amazing Race is designed for all walks of life to complete, so you don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to complete our courses. Most of our courses are approximately 5-7kms in total, and are broken up with checkpoints. So as long as you can comfortably walk then you can complete the Amazing Race!

During our zoom sessions, we do get to know your team as much as possible, including their general fitness levels so we can plan out the perfect Amazing Race to make sure everyone is comfortable & most importantly enjoys their team building experience.

Of course! At Tailored Team Building we understand that each team is different, therefore every Amazing Race is different. We can completely customise an Amazing Race for your team, including the start & finish locations. We are also able to brief the teams in your office / conference centre if you prefer.

We totally understand that mother nature is quite unpredictable! In most cases, in light rain we can still continue with the Amazing Race & have everyone bring along an umbrella / light rain jacket. However, if this doesn’t suit your team then we do have a couple of options;

  1. We can look at postponing your Amazing Race event to another suitable date
  2. We can try & secure a suitable indoor venue (subject to availability of course) & host a Game Show style event instead

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 hosts 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 hosted by us and teams have a mobile number for any problems that arise. Before heading off, our hosts ask for a contact number for each team.

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 Tailored Team Building event.

You are welcome to transfer this credit to any of our Tailored Team Building events.

Brisbane Amazing Race’s parent company, Tailored Team Building carries a $20 million Public Liability insurance. During the race participants are covered by their own WorkCover provisions.

Absolutely!

We work closely with you to get to know your team which will enable us to design & plan the perfect Amazing Race for you. Most of our courses are wheelchair friendly already, otherwise we are more than happy to design a new course to suit everyone’s needs as required.
