This is from a Sony HD commercial

    That's Auckland, New Zealand. You can barely see the Sky Tower in the distant. Free spoilers from Sony.

So where are these?  ??? from the same commercial.

I think you've got it  :tup:. I've found a matching view (photo source): the viewpoint is looking east from Queenstown towards the Remarkables.

Banzai, that's Mount Eden, no?

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

They do Auckland before Queenstown. There was a sighting on a flight from Queenstown to Auckland with a racer saying that they were en-route to Singapore.

I think we can fit in Phuket and Mumbai somewhere in there as well. Istanbul? I'm not that sure.

Why the heck should we even believe this for a second? :groan:

The positions haven't been right even for the (already-aired) first two episodes!

Idiot Wikipedia spammers. :lies:

TARA episode 3 newsletter:

The Teams face a new set of challenges... including one gruelling task that forces the Teams to decide whether to continue, or give up. Making the wrong decision will cost a Team their place in the race.

Looks like we have most of what's coming next week already...

Teams depart from Bali over a spread of what - six hours? Their next destination: Sydney, Australia. It looks like they arrive at Kingsford Smith Intl Airport at the crack of dawn, which would fit in nicely with the first clue being at the Rocks facing the Sydney Opera House.

Since these next two tasks are so close to the clue box, I'm reckoning it's a Detour. We see Sharon/Melody climbing up the Sydney Harbour Bridge (rehash of TAR2) and Andy/Laura processing prawns underneath the bridge (rehash of TAR8).

Looks like the Roadblock involves diving with the sharks at the Sydney Aquarium or Ocean World Manly, and surprise! It's a rehash of the TAR4 Roadblock in Brisbane.

And of course, the Pit Stop at the Bounty. (Yay valor boreal!)



Oh, and that Wikipedia spoiler? Is so blown to bits. :whever:

1st clue

I think the 1st clue is at the North end of the bridge. And then they walk over the bridge toward the Rocks.

The RoadBlock should be at the Ocean World because they have to take a ferry here.

I'm not sure where's the Detour but you can see the Sydney harbor bridge and the Hyatt hotel are in the distant. Maybe it's near the Opera bar or @ the Circular Quay.

Could the first clue be on the side of the bridge of The Rocks? It looks like the Sydney Opera House is facing out towards the left of the picture, which would correspond with the little park next to Circular Quay...

^^ yeah that, it's confusing. The way they walk is like they're going toward the Rocks. The only way left is that they walk back and forth on the bridge.
