LIVEsightings go here!  :hearts: And ONLY live sightings please!!

Comments on the sightings can go HERE >>that's where the real work takes place!

If you HAVE a live sighting to share, help us as much as you can with
WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what color they are wearing is helpful)
WHAT are they doing
WHERE (as exactly as possible... street? airport gate? address? be specific!)
WHEN (what time zone?, exact time)
and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!

If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email me, my email is in my profile. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM me here. Or PRIVATE message me on Twitter @peachrff

IMPORTANT! If you find anything posted by someone working in any capacity for the race or by production, do NOT post it here, you can cost someone their job...or worse. Let me or one of the Moderators know, and we'll see if it can be shared. Thanks!

Same goes for info on FUTURE legs, if you have a spoiler message one of the Moderators FIRST please. NO Future Leg details (where teams will be) should be posted without checking please.


If you are posting a tweet, please post the tweet, the tweet time, and LINK TO the twitter user name. Take a screencap if you can, tweets do disappear.
Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it.


Photos should be credited. If someone is kind enough to share some with us specifically, those should be marked with photo by...or photo credit to....when posting. Happy to help if you need it.  Generally, pics posted on public Instagrams and Twitter are considered "public".



Spoiler info from public FACEBOOK posts may be shared. (For full details, see HERE .)
  I would like us to ASK, but the current messaging system means many posts go unseen. If you do not contact them yourself, please let ME know so I can try. *basic courtesy* This means copy me on all Facebook links please!

Please quote the info, provide the link, and credit the source.

Pictures should be marked with a name or initials whenever possible, if you cannot, just link to them and I'll help as time allows.

THE RULES ABOUT NO PRODUCTION INFO EVER AND NO FUTURE LEG INFO STILL APPLY!
FOR SECURITY REASONS DO NOT REVEAL A FUTURE LOCATION. NOTIFY A MODERATOR ASAP.[/color]





If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting, FB post or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM/email/private Tweet me to ask before you post.



The mods get VERY grouchy if they have to move posts.... so any non-live sighting chatter WILL be deleted!




Big :ghug: to all of you who are bringing us info, we couldn't do this without you!!

Have RESPECT for each other, regardless of opinion. This of course includes no flaming/insulting other users and/or their posts.

Magnetic Island

I saw them leaving the hotel next to the shamrock on Palmer street early Monday morning. I thought it was the amazing race as i wouldn't know any backpackers having a film crew.

To add to this, separate sighting of teams on a flight to Townsville on 11th October. Then looks like they went straight to Castle Hill

Fossil, we cannot count this picture as a TAR sighting! Those flags are used to indicate the beach is a patrolled beach and that it is save to swim in that area of the beach!

Compare those flags to this flag below and you'll have a complete match! :)

A bit more from a new source:

'I spotted the production team and contestants at the Hinterland Aviation terminal at Townsville Airport. They were flying to Palm Island - a beautiful island home to a wonderful indigenous community with an interesting and troubled history - check out Wikipedia for a summary. I don’t know much about the tasks they had to compete but they did go to the school and the fish & chip shop where they had to deliver pizzas to houses that supported specific footy teams.

 It was Monday morning 8am flight to the island (just a 20min flight). I think they were just there for the day."

That would be Monday Oct 12

SAW M/F team  with yellowclue envelope

<<Was about 730am. They were just asking for directions but couldn’t really tell exactly what they were heading for. Nearly dead Centre of the city so only this I could think of would be Crocosaurus Cove to swim with a crocodile. But they were going the long way if that’s what they were doing>>

My father is currently at Darwin Airport and they are filming there right now! What crazy luck! :cheer:

Confirmed they are definitely travelling to Alice Springs on QF865 12:25-14:25. He says there is a huge crew of them with producers and camera crew!

Dad has been talking to some teams and is getting insight right now.

Dad says around 60 people at Qantas group check in- including camera crews, producers, minders etc.

A few "young and dumb" teams.

One team includes a girl with one arm.

He spoke to yellow F/F team.

Allegedly they are going to Tasmania also, but trying to get more info on this from him.

They can't be flying to Tasmania until the 26th of October. The border is closed to the Northern Territory until then and if they're flying to Hobart now, they'll have to quarantine for seven days

Maybe they are going to Alice Springs and then doing a couple of legs in South Australia, before flying to Tasmania early next week?

Dad just got home from Darwin and I have been quizzing him about what he saw. :conf:
  • At first, he wasn't sure it was the Amazing Race but they were doing lots of filming in check in queue and interviewing them. All the teams have Amazing Race coloured ribbons and stickers on their bags. It was very chaotic and he was in the check-in queue for 40 minutes. At the check-in, the Qantas worker said "it was crazy" and that there were 60 people boarding the flight from their group. 
  • Angry producer was telling teams off for talking amongst themselves without being filmed. As soon as the producer went away, they resumed. Apparently, some of them had cuts and bruises and were discussing this/showing them to each other.
  • He spoke to Yellow F/F team (Team 1) - they told him "we have all signed non-disclosure agreements so we can't say but it is what you think it is" - they said they only had $6 left to buy a coffee - originally he thought they were women's rugby players because they looked very "fit and athletic".
  • He also spoke to M/F team (Team 11) - she had half her arm missing - they also said the above ^
  • Overheard a producer talking about going to Hobart - he then asked them if they were going there as well because he will also be in Tasmania next week for a work trip - they laughed, but didn't say anything in response.
  • Definitely travelling to Alice Springs on QF865 and saw them boarding this flight.
  • No sighting of Beau Ryan.

My friend's brother lives in South Australia. He saw them in Port Lincoln doing something called "Tuna Toss" (an annual festival down there).
He said one team was very dramatic! This was today!

Not exactly sightings but a new promo dropped with actual footage of the season:

I believe the M/M talking in a confessional isn't Team 2, hence we officially have 13 teams?

My family have a subscription to News Corp, which runs The Mercury newspaper!  :conf: :cheer:. Here is the full article for you all! There is also a video in the article, but I'm unsure on how to get the video from there onto RFF?

Quote
FILMING of a popular reality TV show in New Norfolk has been praised for putting the country town under the national spotlight.

Film crews for Channel 10’s The Amazing Race Australia were reportedly spotted parading New Norfolk streets on Wednesday night, videoing teams undertaking aspects of the reality adventure show.

Video captured by Hobart resident Ben Wells shows teams departing the Bush Inn on Montagu St.


Derwent Valley Mayor Ben Shaw said several national productions had been linked with the municipality in recent years – creating welcome tourism exposure.

“It’s fantastic for the Derwent Valley to be put on the national stage and it once again highlights the beautiful area to the rest of country,” Cr Shaw said.

“We’ve had lots of filming of TV with shows recently including Rosehaven, The Kettering Incident and The Gloaming as well.

“For a reality TV show to be out here on this occasion is really exciting.”

It’s understood the New Norfolk leg of the Amazing Race journey will have a ‘ghostly’ element.

Channel 10 was contacted for comment.

Doesn't have to be a route although one of that would be amazing too.

The Crowne Plaza was a pit stop for The Amazing Race Australia 2021. Here’s a couple of sneaky pics I took of contestants that were  going to check in. Must say it was a highlight of my trip seeing all the contestants and crew .

Ton of comments under Beau's most recent post pointing to Broken Hill as a location 2 days ago.

After Broken Hill, it seems like they went back to the Gold Coast
