While minimal details have been revealed about this year’s location, the 2020 base camp was created using corrugated iron structures which provided little warmth for the show’s contestants.

Built on an isolated sheep station, there was originally no structures on the camp site with the buildings erected for the show.

At the end of each bed was a metal trunk with a bucket on top, and a row of wooden drying racks lined the centre of the room.
