Week 1

It began with Maude tied to a pole, screaming for help. Two bushrangers informed the teams to "Save the girl, and watch yourselves!". Once Maude was untied, she then informed the teams they had to travel back in time to 1852, where Captain Thunderbox had successfully driven out the townspoke of Spaghetti Creek and now is out to claim the hidden treasure.

Lock, Shock and One Soaking Barrel

In this challenge all teams were locked in a mini jail cell, and they had to make a long wooden pole and retrieve the keys. They had 2 minutes to retrieve the keys, and if they get the right one they will get out, but if they don't they will get soaked.

Tied Up and Pied Up

The winners are the first to cross the line in spaghetti-filled boots with all their ingredients intact. It was a very close match but the Bee's Knees pulled ahead of the Bunnies, winning the challenge.

Week 6

The Treasure Hunt

The treasure hunt began at the Spaghetti Creek swamp where each team must look for their coloured tiles. When Harry picked up the Booty Kickers' tile he quickly dropped it and covered it up. The Booty Kickers saw this and pulled ahead.

The Bee's Knees were right behind the Booty Kickers when they went to the next station. They find the right tile at the bottom of a haystack. When the Dark Evil Bunnies and Mix Ups finally find their tiles the Booty Kickers go on towards the mine.

The Booty Kickers took quite a bit of time figuring out the clue so the Dark Evil Bunnies and Bee's Knees caught up to the Booty Kickers and they all run to the mine together. In the tunnel the Booty Kickers find their tile first and run ahead to figure out a jigsaw puzzle.

Bee's Knees and Dark Evil Bunnies catch up and they all go in different directions for their next tile. The Booty Kickers went to the wash house, the Dark Evil Bunnies went to the blacksmith's building.

The Booty Kickers are still ahead. They eat through many pies and find another much-needed tile. They go on ahead while the Dark Evil Bunnies and Bee's Knees eat their pies. The Mix Ups finally come to put their puzzle together which leads them to the post office, while the Booty Kickers use a pole to knock down a flour bucket and acquire another tile.

The Booty Kickers waste time trying to figure out what to do with the letters leaving the Dark Evil Bunnies to knock down their own bucket and pull ahead. The Dark Evil Bunnies go to the graveyard and use their tiles to figure out which grave to dig up. In short order, the Booty Kickers and Bee's Knees do the same thing.

The Dark Evil Bunnies uncover a small chest in which they get their last clue, a key and a map. They sit down to work it out while the Booty Kickers take off to where they think the treasure is. It was down to the Bee's Knees and Dark Evil Bunnies. (The Mix Ups were up to the pies.) The Bee's Knees run to where they think the treasure is hidden. Ryan figures out that if you fold the map, the track line becomes a coffin shape; with that they run to Mayor Freddy Spaghetti's coffin and unlock it to find the treasure.
