Gallery: Australian Survivor on location
“Visually, the locations, wildlife, sunrises and sunsets were stunning," say producers.
Camerawork on Australian Survivor has certainly made the most of the dusty red vistas of Cloncurry, 1700km north west of Brisbane.
In a departure from previous tropical island locations of Fiji and Samoa, Brains Vs. Brawn has been filmed against a backdrop of dusty red plains, craggy outcrops, dry grasslands and outback waterways.
Keely Sonntag, Executive Producer, Endemol Shine Australia said, “Visually, the locations, wildlife, sunrises and sunsets were stunning and unlike anything we’d used before. The Cloncurry outback added a whole other level of interest and spectacle that could never be achieved overseas. We had the space and facilities to produce one of the largest reality shows in Australia, the weather was ideal for our shoot period, and the local crew were extremely talented and hard-working.”
“We also had the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from the Mitakoodi People, the Traditional Owners of the Country on which Survivor was filmed, which was a hugely rewarding part of the experience,” said Sonntag.
“We absolutely loved working with Screen Queensland and the local community, and we are so appreciative of the incredible support and assistance we received throughout.”
Australian Survivor continues 7:30pm Sunday – Tuesday on 10.
