Sydney Botanic Gardens and Circular Quay
Our flagship Amazing Race starts in Sydney’s beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.
After lingering in the sanctuary of the Gardens we head around the Opera House to East Circular Quay, soak up the buzz and scenery there and finish in a Circular Quay pub. This virtually flat course is pleasant and enjoyable for all teams.
Particularly perfect for teams with people from overseas or interstate
We start near the Conservatorium of Music and complete 3 checkpoints in the idyllic Gardens before heading out past the Sydney Opera House into Circular Quay.
When you enquire, we email you with all the logistic details and help with suggestions of the best finish points.

How does the event run?
- Once we’ve all met at the start point we sort you into your sub teams of 6-8 people.
- The event starts with some fun warm up exercises followed by a simple briefing
- You head off from the start point with a folder, map, clue and contact information.
- At each checkpoint you’re given some tasks with clear instructions and time guides. Once complete you’re handed your next clue or activity and the race continues.
- Activities: The activities are creative and engaging, with just a hint of challenge.
- Have a look at this link to get a sense of the types of activities that teams complete. We’ll ask you a bit about your team and choose activities to suit.
- The event winds up with the most popular activity, the “photo essay” challenge.
- Virtually all the photos on this website were taken by the teams on this task. They look happy don’t they? They certainly were … and we have 200,000 more photos just like the ones you see here and in the gallery.
- Most teams wind down in a casual pub while we tally the scores. We give a brief presentation to acknowledge all teams and then announce the winners.
Timing: The total time for an event is generally around 2.5 hours, which can be increased or shortened by around 20 minutes. Some larger groups need to allow a little extra time.
Physical Exertion: Can be adapted to suit your team, we don’t encourage running and ensure all participants are not overtaxing themselves. Anyone fit enough for a brisk walk can enjoy the event.
Our Promise: We make things easy for you as the organiser and guide you through each step. Once the group gets to the start you will be able to enjoy the event was one of the crowd, plus you’ll be sincerely thanked by everyone who attends
