They've gone there since Season 12 on so far.
I think it is about time that they will NOT go there!



I think they will still go there every season even if it gets old.

My guess? Back to Africa this time....

It's about time we saw Africa again.

And, like every season, I would like to request Melbourne, specifically my house.

Yes, Melbourne is beautiful (I lived in Moonee Ponds for a while back in 1973).  They went to Cairns in Season 1, maybe they could do a tribute to that season in season 15 and visit the same countries.

Cairns was season 4. They never went to Aus in series 1.

Here is the history of Amazing Race visits to Australia:

2-Sydney, Adelaide,
4-Brisbane, Mooloolaba, Cairns, 
9-Perth, Freemantle, Darwin

For Amazing Race Asia, ARA1 visited Sydney

Coutzy is right. Melbourne is the only really large Australian city not visited yet (I don't put Canberra or Hobart in that category). It should be next when they visit Australia and I think Hobart would be appropriate also.

2-Sydney, Adelaide, Coober Pedy
4-Brisbane, Mooloolaba, Cairns, 
9-Perth, Freemantle, Darwin

Coutzy is right. Malbourne is the only really large Australian city not visited yet (I don't put Canberra or Hobart in that category). It should be next when they visit Australia and I think Hobart would be appropriate also.

Very much correct about Canberra. There is a fair bit to do, but the city itself is tiny.

I'd like to see more of Adelaide as well, instead of just the snippet we got between Sydney and Coober Pedy.

Given that Melbourne is considered (By locals at least) the sporting capital of Australia, and that the biggest football (AFL) stadium in the country is situated there (Along with loads of other great stuff, including wine in the Yarra valley.  Sorrento and the Mornington Penninsula (More wine!) looks marvellous. We also have a good historical backing with the gold rush of the 1850's in Ballarat and Sovereign Hill.)

A potential leg could look something like this:

Fly into Melbourne

Fast Forward: Participate in a game of Ninepin at Sovereign Hill until a certain score is achieved. Fly by helicopter directly to the Pit Stop (Since Ballarat is a long way from Melbourne itself, and without the fast way to the Pit Stop, the FF is no real advantage.)

Detour: Kick x amount of goals at the MCG using an Australian Rules football, or win x amount of hands at blackjack at Crown Casino.

Additional Task: Ride the Scenic Railway at Luna Park (The worlds oldest continuously operating Roller Coaster), in St. Kilda (While there, play a game of "Spot the flimsy pretext we used to be able to put in a U-Turn") Anybody who has been to Melbourne and seen Luna Park would understand how iconic the place is.

Roadblock: Stomp on grapes at a vineyard in the wine district of the Mornington Penninsula to make x amount of bottles of wine.

Pit Stop: The entrance to Gumbuya Park, near Pakenham (Giant Peacock out the front, quite the memorable destination)


Oh, and self driving throughout the leg, because it's always fun to watch Americans try to drive on the left!

Oh, you're right, I watched both seasons recently and got them confused.  Thanks.

If you're going that route, then the next leg should start with a ferry to Tasmania, then driving to Hobart, etc.

This race should go through the Southern Hemisphere a lot, like Season 2. I think we need a refresher in some southern places.

As Phil stated 15 episoides will air this season.
If that were to happen it would be the biggest season ever.
So most likely newer countries will be visited. For ex. Paraguay, Belgium and Nepal

Hmmm... I think the people paraphrasing the news confuse "season" with "episode", the "quote" says 15 episodes but there's no mention on that on the source
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
