Love Island Australia should be slowing creeping towards its second season yet a confirmed start date is still missing. Which seems bizarre.
Following the huge success of the first-ever Love Island series Down Under, in 2018, fans are more than ready for a second instalment this summer.
Here’s everything you need to know about Love Island Australia 2019, including a rumoured change of villa location and other potential shocks.

When does Love Island Australia start 2019?
Love Island Australia season 2 will not start until later in the year – likely around September/October.
Series 1 of Love Island launched on May 27th, although season 2 will not launch on Channel Nine until a much later date, sometime after Love Island UK wraps up at the start of August.
The series will also air online on via Three, who bought the rights to stream Love Island UK, USA and Aus.
What did Sophie Monk say?
Love Island presenter Sophie Monk confessed that she was still completely in the dark about the production of the show… and this was on May 8th, supposedly a ‘couple of weeks before the air date’.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Sophie said:
I have no idea (when Love Island filming starts) – I’m guessing soon-ish and I have no idea where it will be [filmed] still.’
Have they changed the location?
Although nothing has been 100% confirmed, it looks like producers may have changed the filming location for season 2.
The first series was filmed in Mallorca, Spain, which is where the original Love Island series (England) was shot.
However, it seems like producers are reluctant to fly their crew and cast 17,000 miles across the world when they could find similar scenic locations closer to home.
Programming boss Hamish Turner told TV Tonight:
From a casting perspective if you want to make quick decisions about getting new people in you are somewhat restricted by Mallorca. It’s not just Spain, it’s a boat, a flight and more.

According to Confidential, the move is likely to be a location in Queensland. Which, has to be said, sounds a lot less glamorous!
Then again, if producers still to the same Love Island villa as the UK show then they will have to wait until the end of July before the can set up to cam to start filming.
