Please feel free to right to me to add anything.
Thanks Alenaveda for the captions!


Could #18 be the Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre in BlueMountain National Park? Which would mean we have a pitstop there

19-25 are the Hidden Valley Raceway in Darwin.

The mine appears to be the Umoona Opal Mine And Museum in Coober Pedy.

FIRST CHALLENGE:

"In the promo, the Kuku Yalanji people welcome the contestants to their land, and set them up for their first challenge."

Thanks for setting this up, there needs to be a lot of discussion on this to sort out the route and timing of legs  :)x

I think we had rumours of a rappel at Castle Hill, Townsville during filming. Should match up with that promo pic.

The shot of the mat should be at Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre (Blue Mountains).

Given the highwire/exercise ball challenge location & teams included, I think it has to slot in the Daintree area. Possibly around Cape Tribulation given the mountains in the background?

Also given The Ghan is in the promos, I would have thought they'd come from Alice Springs into Coober Pedy? Dunno if there's time for that though. I also don't think we have any actual confirmation of WA at this point in time from the promos  :'(

Spoilers seem to suggest a pretty logical route actually, with only a couple of issues:

Leg 1: Daintree Rainforest, QLD (October 6)
Leg 2: Longreach/Winton, QLD (October 9)
Leg 3: Townsville, QLD (October 11)
Leg 4: Magnetic Island, QLD (October 14)
Leg 5: Cairns, QLD (October 16)
Leg 6: Unknown
Leg 7: Darwin, NT (arrival October 19, leg October 20)
Leg 8: Alice Springs, NT (October 21)
Leg 9: Coober Pedy, SA (date unknown but fits here)
Leg 10: Adelaide/Barossa Valley, SA (October 24)
Leg 11: Port Lincoln, SA (October 26)
Legs 12 and 13: Esperance and Kalgoorlie, WA (dates unknown but fit here; too far apart for the same leg)
Leg 14: Broome, WA (date unknown but fits here)
Leg 15: Hobart, TAS (November 2)
Leg 16: New Norfolk, TAS (November 4)
Leg 17: Unknown
Legs 18 and 19: Hunter Valley, NSW (November 8 and 9)
Leg 20: Broken Hill, NSW (November 12)
Leg 21: Canberra, ACT (November 14)

So then the only problems are the Gold Coast appearing in the promo and Beau rattling off Brisbane, Launceston, and half a dozen NSW locations we didn't know about in his video.

The state border situations due to Covid make it incredibly, incredibly unlikely they'd return to a state after leaving so what if Brisbane/Gold Coast is Leg 6, in between Cairns and Darwin, and the mystery gap between New Norfolk and the Hunter Valley is a leg that involves driving across Tasmania to Launceston airport, flying into Sydney, and then a long drive along the highways through the Blue Mountains, Bathurst, and Orange to Dubbo? Dubbo is also very near the Hunter Valley and makes perfect sense as a starting point for a visit to that region.

That'd fix EVERY SINGLE PROBLEM we have sorting out the route, unless more unexpected locations turn up?

Also...where exactly is our start? Anyone found it on a map??

Maybe here? https://www.thalabeach.com.au/

Needs to be connected to the  the Kuku Yalanji people  and this one is.  " the Kuku Yalanji people welcome the contestants to their land, and set them up for their first challenge"

Also close to Cairns and we know that crew was there before start.   :d025:

I mean that right there is a big hint when you mention the Kuku Yalanji people. Wiki gives us some good info:

Quote
Kuku Yalanji are now concentrated predominantly in Mossman and Wujal Wujal.

So the best guess is the Mossman River opening. Geographically it seems similar but I'm still struggling to get an exact match. Google maps seems a tad outdated and the tides don't match up exactly between the promo and map. There's also supposedly a boat ramp around there, but not sure if it's out of shot or now defunct and overgrown with trees.

For what it's worth, the Wikipedia article for this season says that there will be 16 legs, and some of the cities Beau mentioned in the above clip made the "Future Legs" section.

16 legs is probably just a placeholder. At *minimum*, unless we've got a bunch of legs like the old "fly here, now fly here" finales, there's eighteen legs. And 21 is significantly more likely.

Based on timing my guess is the New Norfolk leg is actually a "drive across Tasmania" leg (from Hobart in the south to Launceston in the north; New Norfolk is along the route and very near Hobart, so probably the first task of the leg), then teams fly from Launceston to Sydney at the start of the next leg. Maybe a task there before they get sent on what seems to be another long drive to Dubbo. I don't think we got a full leg there, just simply because it would have been spoiled.

Also, he's from Sydney, and not the brightest bulb in the shed at the best of times. Like if I was in that situation, I might not remember which obscure towns in Queensland or Western Australia got visited, but I'd absolutely remember doing a task in my hometown.

This is the synopsis for episode 2, seems to fit the Gold Coast leg we suspected:

Quote
Working alongside our Aussie lifeguards in red and yellow, the teams take on some of the toughest surf conditions and complete a rigorous series of challenges to receive their next clue.

Must be Daintree - Gold Coast - Winton to kick things off.
