Maybe they'll ditch the taxis and take the train
this time. (Also, judging by the map, taking the boat to Hillarys harbor was a bad bet for the Hippies)

"The Amazing Race teams were rushed through Darwin airport to SkyCity hotel casino on Thursday night and yesterday morning they are believed to have filmed scenes at Darwin's Crocodylus Park before being whisked to a secret location."
This mornings papers up here in Darwin said that the latest series of TAR was being filmed here. Contestants arrived Thurs night and rushed through the airport then yesterday they filmed at the Crocodile Park (all they do there is feed the snapping handbags and have animals on display so I guess there is a challenge to feed them (usually a chicken on a string off a pole). After this the paper said the contestants were then rushed off to another secret location. If they arrived late Thur night then they have either flown in from somewhere in asia or Melb or Syd (only international flights come in from Brunei, Indonesia or Singapore). DID we see contestants from The Amazing Race in Adelaide?
Onlookers at Adelaide Airport on Sunday wondered what all the fuss was about when a desperate-looking couple attempted to book a capacity Singapore Airlines flight.
They also happened to be young, good-looking Americans carrying only backpacks, with a TV crew filming their every move.
They had boarding passes for a flight to Sydney, and after being told the Singapore Airlines flight was full, they ran back to the domestic terminal (bet they're wishing the new terminal was in operation).

satellite photo of Darwin airport, Sky City hotel, and Crocodylus Park. They're very close to each other.

Looks like there might be a few little streams or something to get wet in. Doesn't look like it's a full-fledged river they're splashing around in.

Of the two skydiving sites mentioned previously, I'll go with Skydive Territory for now. Two reasons:
- You can see from the cap that a Sigma rig is used.This page
shows Sigma being used by ST.
- On the same page is the map with their location; they're based in Batchelor, just outside of Litchfield park.
(Not much to go on, I know)

:woohoo: tv preview is up; cable tv version
Looking at these flights along with gmans estimated pitstop arrivals, I agree with mwooden that it's time for a chartered flight from Perth to Darwin.
Gmans estimate of pit arrival times:
The Beach Boys 11:30AM to 12:00Noon
MO/JO 11:30AM to 12:00Noon
The Hippies 12:00N to 12:30PM
RaYolanda 1:00PM to 1:30PM
So they will be bunched at the doors of the bell tower until 10 am and then to the airport to catch Qantas flight 1942 leaving at 12:20 pm and arriving in Darwin at 7:05 pm (stops for about 1:45 along the way).
:bar:CBS Website Clues: One team starts playing head games with another by egging them on with rumors that drive them crazy.
When two teams race to the Yield Mat, the first team to arrive rubs salt in the wound by yielding the duo they outran right in front of their faces.
There is a three-way footrace to the pitstop. What news will Phil have for the last team to arrive? Press Release "Man, They Should Have Used Their Fake Names" --
Knowing that the Million Dollar Prize is within their reach, the final four Teams turn up the intensity, on THE AMAZING RACE 9.
Teams fly to Darwin, Australia and must wade through a crocodile-infested pool to receive their next clue.
The Racers also perform an intense Roadblock which requires one teammate to perform a tandem skydive with a trained professional.
This entire leg is full of foot races which culminate with a three-way sprint to the Pit Stop.
Meanwhile, Teams continue to play head games with each other and one Duo takes the scheming a step further when they cancel all the cabs waiting for the remaining Teams.
