What to expect:
We “run” the Amazing Race in the very heart of Melbourne with the Yarra as the star; it includes the beautiful calm surrounds of the Botanic Gardens, to the river, then the bustle of Southgate, the intriguing Melbourne laneways including a special challenge in Hosier Lane. The final checkpoint is Federation Square, creating a unique backdrop for our Photo Shoot challenge.
We always start in the Botanic Gardens (opposite the NGV) and can finish anywhere in a 5-8 minute walking radius of Federation Square. And the best bit? Finding the perfect spot to relax and compare experiences with a drink at the end!
At Team Bonding we think the Melbourne City Centre course is the best route we offer Australia wide.

Common Questions about Amazing Race:
Is it Like The TV Show?
Our Amazing Race is only loosely based on the the popular TV show, it is really more like a team treasure hunt / scavenger hunt style event. The most obvious difference is that harsh challenges are replaced by fun activities and the entire event is carried out in a spirit of enjoyment rather than fierce competition. Also in the show, one person has to stand by while the other participates, we found that didn’t work well in a team building context, plus we changed from pairs to small groups, which is much more enjoyable as people share the load.
What Kind of Activities Do You Do?
The activities are designed for bonding and engagement rather than intimidation or humiliation. At face value they seem challenging and are easier to complete than it first seems. The tasks require different aptitudes, enabling everyone in the team to shine. Some are observational, some are creative, some mental and some relate to co-ordination. Most have a timed element and all require planning and team work to perform well.
We Have People who are Pregnant, Injured or that have a Disability, can they Participate?
With minor injuries most people can participate and likewise even people with advanced pregnancy have enjoyed the experience. Most courses have shortcuts and we can generally make discrete allowances to suit the needs of your participants. We have had wheelchair users on some courses and also vision and hearing impaired participants. In all these cases it is best to call us to discuss your specific situation.
