On the Pit-Stop-Mid-Point, Phil did not check in the teams. Instead, handed them another clue which instructed them to return to Sydney and get to "To Sail To Stop". What the teams didn't know was that "To Sail To Stop" referred to an anchor sculpture that is located near the Sydney Town Hall. Once there, the teams signed up for one of two charter flights that would fly them to their next destination, Broken Hill. The two flights were 30 minutes apart.
At The Broken Hill Airport - teams searched for marked cars. They were to drive themselves to The Living Desert where their next clue awaited them.
Detour: Spirit World or Natural World In Spirit World, teams were instructed to make a traditional Australian Aboriginal stone mosaic to match a specific model. Once approved by a judge, they then need to dance on top of their mosaic to receive their next clue. In Natural World, teams were asked to create traditional Australian Aboriginal markers using a mixture of water and a clay-like pigment. Team members needed to put the mixture into their mouth and spit the substance onto a stencil provided to create four specific images. If they'd make it correctly, the judge would hand them their next clue.
All teams chose Spirit World. However, because Amanda and Kris received an automatic U-Turn from the first leg, they were forced to do both.
After the Detour, teams needed to drive themselves back to Broken Hill and search for the "home of the Magpies". They had to figure out that the clue "home of the Magpies" was pointing them to the Broken Hill Central Football Club where they would find their next clue.
Clue: Time for a "Roo'd" awakening:At the Central Football Club, the teams were given periodic tables in which Hg and Bi were highlighted. They had to figure out that symbols Hg was for mercury and Bi was for bismuth. Once the teams had solved this, they should also know that they must look for the intersection of Mercury and Bismuth Streets in town where they'd find their next clue. But before they could proceed to the task, the teams must wear a Kangaroo costume. The teams hopped around town looking for their next clue with only the periodic table on their hands.
Pit Stop: Junction Mine - Teams drove to the Pit Stop with their Kangaroo suits on except for the shoes for driving.
