Story

Route Markers

Teams must be divided into two groups of five representing their respective nation and compete in a "Trans-Tasman tug of war". Once one of the sides are able to grab their national flag from below the rope, the winning team were given a 10-minute head-start to the airport with their first clues leading them to their first destination: Christchurch, New Zealand. Upon arrival at Christchurch International Airport, teams must travel to the Cardboard Catherdral where they will search the area for one of three departure time tickets for the following morning, 8:00am, 8:15am or 8:30am. In the morning teams received their next clue.

Teams must travel to Rangitata Rafts at Rangitata River, Geraldtine where they will don safety gear and then raft down 5 grade rapids and find one half of a ring from The Lord of the Rings buried in the sand.

Teams must travel to Rata Peaks Station in Peel Forest where they will search the area for a clue box containing their next clue.

Who's got better traction?
The assigned team member had to navigate a tractor through a course and move 4 bales of hay into the marked area. Once this has been completed, they had to go to a sheep paddock and find sheep with the exact match of the other half of the ring from the rafting challenge. Teams would put the half rings together to reveal their next clue.

Teams must "Go west to the Pit Stop" to find their first Pit Stop: Southern Alps in Geraldton, New Zealand.
