Travel restrictions are not likely to easy up until mid-2021, so that means no Australian Survivor unless it takes place on one of these islands.
In 2019 Network 10 announced that they will air two seasons of the popular reality TV series Australian Survivor, but due to the current global crisis it’s not likely to happen… unless it is filmed here in Australia.
A spokesperson for the network explained that production for the upcoming season had been indefinitely postponed and that the health and safety of the cast and crew on Australian Survivor is the prime focus of the network.
“Following the Australian Government’s latest advice on overseas travel, plus discussions with the Fijian Government, production of the new season of Australian Survivor has been postponed. While this news is disappointing, the health and safety of everyone involved with the show is our number one priority. We will update everyone on when production will start as soon as we can,” said the spokesperson.
Just as restrictions were beginning to ease Australia has seen a second spike due to political protests and a few bad eggs who exploited travel restrictions within Australia.

Sadly, the word on the street is that world-wide travel restrictions will not ease until March, 2021. If that’s the case we won’t see another Australian Survivor season until late that year. That’s unless we host it on one of our many beautiful surrounding islands.
Australia has 8,222 islands within its maritime borders and there are a tonne of islands that would be perfectly suited for a game of Australian Survivor.
Network 10 could relocate the shooting of the upcoming season to one of these beautiful Australian islands and not have to deal with international travel ban.
Australian Survivor is usually filmed either in Fiji or Samoa, but why not just film in one of of very own beautiful islands.
Lord Howe Island
Next Australian Survivor season took take place on Lord Howe Island.
Lord Howe Island is a tiny Australian island in the Tasman Sea east of Port Macquarie. It’s characterised by sandy beaches, subtropical forests and clear waters. In the south, a trail winds up soaring Mount Gower, with sweeping views. Ned’s Beach in the north has calm fish- and coral-rich waters. The island is home to seabird colonies, including masked boobies. Dive sites surround the nearby Admiralty Islands.
Lord Howe Island opens up to Australian citizen and tourists at the end of this month.

As well as having nice isolated beaches and thick and lush forests there are also 5-star luxury hotels with cabanas and bungalows on the other side of the island that are perfect for jury.
There have been no new updates on the highly anticipated season of Australian Survivor and, if they don’t film in Australia, we might might not see another season until summer 2021.
