The race is on with local youth encouraged to put their minds and bodies to the test in Canterbury-Bankstown’s Amazing Race.

Held on Tuesday 17 April, 9.30am-5pm, the Amazing Race will begin at Bankstown PCYC, 55 Meredith Street, Bankstown, and is part of the City’s annual Youth Week activities.

The challenges and activities, including skating, puzzles and drumming, are designed to move participants from Bankstown to Campsie and everywhere in between.

The winning team will complete all the challenges and arrive first at the final pit stop, earning themselves $200 – $50 for each participant.

Residents aged 15-24 can register a team of four, or as an individual, by 4 April at

Mission Australia is working with Council to coordinate this year’s Amazing Race challenges.

"My advice for participants is simple – follow the instructions properly and complete all the challenges as quickly as you can! But, most importantly, have fun and enjoy the experience," said Mission Australia Adolescent and Family Caseworker, Cassander Paice.

"Youth Week is all about exposing our young people to new opportunities, activities and people from different cultures and backgrounds.

"If there’s one thing it should give them, it’s a sense of renewed connection to their local community and the services here to help them."

Mayor Khal Asfour encouraged all youth to get involved and embrace this year’s theme, Unity through Diversity.

"Youth Week is about celebrating our youth – the role they play in our community and the issues important to them," Mayor Asfour said.

Other Youth Week activities scheduled between Friday 13 April and Sunday 22 April, include:

  • 3v3 Basketball Competition at Bankstown PCYC, on Saturday 14 April (10am-6pm);
  • Skate Party at the Roundabout Youth Centre, on Monday 16 April (6-9pm);
  • Youth Week anthology publication launch and Writing Competition winners announced at Bankstown Arts Centre, on Thursday 19 April (6-8pm); and
  • Spark Fest at Paul Keating Park, a glow in the dark music festival with live entertainment, food, rides and fun activities, on Friday 20 April (3-8pm).
