I'm OK with NZ, but two legs, and then to Fiji? Oceania overkill.  :lol:

And I don't especially like another two legs in South Africa.

OMG, this is a brilliant route! <3 Only thing I'd change is doing somewhere else in USA besides NYC.
Cause you said you'd never let me go, and I said I can but now we know
That it's too hard to say three words, too hard to make it work
When there's nothing left to talk about, cause you know the flame is running out
Two hearts are left to burn... do you know, we're only left with smoke

Leg 1: Sydney, Australia to Tokyo, Japan
Leg 2: Tokyo, Japan to Seoul, South Korea
Leg 3: Seoul, South Korea to Dhaka, Bangladesh
Leg 4: Dhaka, Bangladesh to Kazakhstan
Leg 5: Kazakhstan to Moscow, Russia
Leg 6: Moscow, Russia to Madrid, Spain
Leg 7: Madrid, Spain to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Leg 8: Brazil
Leg 9: Brazil to Santiago, Chile
Leg 10: Santiago, Chile to Easter Is., Chile
Leg 11: Easter Is., Chile to New Zealand
Leg 12: New Zealand to Melbourne, Australia

And the final Road Block task will be similar to the final road block task on TAR 19, so the final 3 teams will scratch their head on which the country Kazakhstan were located on the world map. :lol3: :iok

More reasonable wishlist destinations for season 3 are Thailand and Japan. I can just imagine season 3 ripping open a clue flying to those countries so here's my guess on the route.

Leg 1 (Australia --> Japan) Gold Coast OR Brisbane to Tokyo
Leg 2 (Japan) High-speed rail to outer Tokyo villages
Leg 3 (Japan --> South Korea) Busan (manufacturing route)
Leg 4 (South Korea --> Russia) Vladivostok
Leg 5 (Russia) Trans-Siberian railway to Saint Petersburg
Leg 6 (Russia --> Ukraine) Bus to Kiev
Leg 7 (Ukraine --> Italy) Venice
Leg 8 (Italy --> Nigeria) Abuja and bus to Lagos
Leg 9 (Nigeria) Lagos (rebuilding and economic activity route)
Leg 10 (Nigeria --> Ethiopia) Addis Ababa
Leg 11 (Ethiopia --> Thailand) Bangkok and bus to Chiang Mai (nature route)
Leg 12 (Thailand --> Australia) End City: Perth (Western Australian Outback finish)

Not sure if this goes here, but I think that a visit to South Korea or Japan is a definite.

Japan is a go-to must. :cmas16

Tokyo is beautiful in the spring with cherry blossoms in bloom. Hopefully they can take a hi-speed rail to Sapporo and then fly to Busan (recommended) or Seoul the next leg.

Yes that is a definite possibility and perhaps onwards to Europe through Russia.

If cost is an issue I don;t think Japan would be a good destination. Its expensive.

If TARAussie can fly to South Africa from Australia, I believe in them flying to Japan as I have read they have similar booking prices. Read it on a flight site, but not sure if it's respectfully true or not.

The nearest "international" airport to Kosciusko National Park is Canberra, which is a nice 2 - 3 hour drive and only gets flights from Sydney, Adelaide, and other Australian territories (why even bother calling it "international" :groan:)

This would be a perfect finish line location despite its airport direct destination choices and long drive. :)

It's called Canberra International Airport because Air Pacific had flights there to Nadi for about a year or so in 2006. They could also do a massive drive from Sydney or something to get to a Mt. Kosciusko in the early morning to have a sunrise finish which would be epic.
