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.

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.

Paparazzi in Southbank

Short of Time? Try Paparazzi!

The photography and creative challenges are consistently popular with every team and everyone has a great laugh at their photos. It generally isn’t fiercely contested, but there is just enough competition to make the result interesting.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The Brisbane Amazing Race is operated by one of Australia’s leading team building activities supplier,
Team Bonding – ABN 26 112 497 542. Team Bonding has been operating since 2006 and offers over 20 events, of which the Amazing Race is the best seller. See www.teambonding.com.au

We also operate in Sydney and Melbourne. Between Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney we can do “simultaneous events” where teams participate on courses timed to be fairly similar.

Yes absolutely!

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 (winter) and 3.30pm (summer). 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.

The largest group to deliver a great event is around 135, above which the logistics start to get difficult for our high touch style event. With large groups, clients can split their group in 2 and run 2 races on different courses, we discount the second event in this case. From your side, if you finish in the same location, it would still have the feel of one event.

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.

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 3 options up until 36 hours before the event; a) go ahead in “stand by mode” or b) change to our indoor activity, either Laugh a Minute or Indoor Paparazzi  (a venue is required) or c) postpone to an alternative date without penalty.

If you choose “stand by” mode and it is raining heavily at the start point or around the time you are leaving, we consult the radar, take a vote and generally go inside to do the indoor alternative activity (subject to a pre arranged venue being available).  If the weather is really bad on the day and your team does not want to go ahead with anything, we do need to invoice our direct staff costs so our team can be paid for the day.  We retain your deposit as a credit and will re run the event on an alternative date agreeable to both parties.

Bottom Line: If there is somewhere we can go, we will have an alternative indoor activity prepared and ready to go.

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.

We can create a new race in a location of your choice at an additional cost of $1,000 + gst (excludes travel time greater than 45mins from Sydney metro area). The only proviso is that the actual area is readily walkable and has some interesting places to go.

Every team is unique so in most cases we do make tweaks to personalise your event.
