Where was Love Island: Australia season 2 filmed?
Unlike the first series which was filmed in Mallorca, the 2019 show was filmed in Fiji. The producers changed the location as it’s closer to Australia which allowed for more twist and for new islanders to arrive on the island quicker.
Who won Love Island: Australia season 1?
The first series was won by Tayla Damir and Grant Crapp.
Unfortunately things didn’t last, as just three weeks after filming ended it was revealed Grant actually had a girlfriend and only went on the show for self promotion – yikes.

Does Love Island: Australia season 2 have a Casa Amor?
Love Island is known for its twists and turns in the form of bombshells, votes and on some occasions, surprise returns of dumped islanders.
One of the biggest twists is the UK version’s Casa Amor which sees the boys and girls split for several days and made to live with six new boys and girls.
Series one of Love Island: Australia didn’t have many twists due to the location, which made it difficult for contestants to be flown in from Australia which is 18 hours away.
However, with a new location, series two made this possible and introduced “Bomb Squad” – a similar format to Casa Amor which involved five new girls joining the villa at once.
