Twelve weeks ago 3 teams of 2 joined Daniel MacPherson in the Northern Territory on an experience of a lifetime.

Crunch time on The Checklist

Teams were competing for cash, travel & prizes but the ultimate prize was to be crowned The Checklist Champion for 2012.

Teams consisted of fitness buddies Rich & Edwina from Sydney, flatmates Joel & Jet from Newcastle and married couple Matt & Amara from Adelaide.

The competition begun in Sydney where teams had to prove they had what it takes by navigating through the busy streets of Sydney and compete in a crazy ‘Bush Tucker’ eating challenge in week 2.

Week 3 saw teams begin their adventures in 3 vastly different areas of the NT. Joel and Jet take on tropical Darwin, Mat & Amara have gone to the world heritage listed Kakadu National park and Rich & Edwina have landed in the stunning Red Centre.

As they worked their way through the incredible experiences set for each of them on their short breaks, they collected letters and clues that lead them to the finale. Along the way they competed for surprising challenges as they checked experiences off their checklist.

Highlights along the way included getting close with camels in an unforgettable outback experience, a Ping-Pong-thong water game in a beautiful waterhole, racing around the Red Centre on quad bikes, getting up close and personal with Darwin’s infamous real life jumping crocodiles and a party on one of the most sought after train journeys in the world, The Ghan.

After 12 long week's in the Northern Territory, teams land in the almighty Katherine Gorge and its crunch time with a final three challenges to go.
