Check Sydney Airport website...there's the most updated

Is there a webcam?? :flirt:
Here's a link to all Sydney and NSW traffic cams! Keep a look out for the marked cars! lol

Here's a webcam at Bondi Beach - I doubt we'll see teams but at least it'll make you feel warm on a sub-zero night.

From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Are there any live cams of the Sydney Opera House? The teams will probably go there at some point.

RichinSydney, thats very helpful, people get a camera! Sydney Opera House maybe? There's a camera just outside of the airport too!

I think China's fair game as well, since they didn't go there in TAR 17.
[/qu

I guess Hong Kong could be considered different enough from some of China's less explored regions, but TAR17 did go to China.

China and India are always fair game, they might even do both. I just think it's India's turn. Unless they do Australia/Indonesia/South Asian country and skip India because it would be the fifth or sixth leg in the same type of climate and they want to go for some variety and not spend half the race in the same (vast) neighborhood. Sadly, given the time of the year, Kazakhstan will probably still not be featured on TAR.

Look out for clue boxes and route markers if there are any.

Trains at Kingsford Smith Airport
The Airport Link train connects Sydney Airport to Central Station and Circular Quay. The Airport Link information desk is located in T3 Arrivals hall, next to baggage carousel 1. Ticket prices begin from A$15.00 for a single adult ticket from the Domestic Terminal to Central Station.

So, if most of the teams appear on the Wii cover...could the Wii game give us clues for the race course?

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

And that answers it, for the people who think Live Sightings is neccessarily the right place. Peach, I think they just wanted to be in on your spoilers! Having a go at detecting!

People can be in on it.....just do it in the Speculation Thread.....leave the sightings thread for raw data. It makes much easier to find later without all the comements, discussions etc in that thread.

Yes or feed the sharks. Definately a Road Block. They should be there a while. I remember someone didn't complete the task in TAR Asia, too scared to go in the water!!

Agreed! But when you have a season of returning teams in a country were arguably Amazing race is the most popular outside USA it comes much easier to spoil.

So the next leg should start around noon tomorrow?
I'm going for a double leg in Australia. Teams could stay in Sydney or go on a 6am domestic flight? NZ is a chance but its going backwards in the route considering they are going in a Westerly direction  :duno:
