Extreme survival reality program Alone Australia is back for a second season.

Based on the U.S program of the same name, the show sees its brave contestants dropped alone in the wilderness with a limited amount of survival equipment. Isolated from the world and each other, each contestant is required to self-document their experiences with their own camera.

The goal is to see who can survive the longest, with the longest remaining contestant receiving a prize of $250,000. The others can choose to tap out when they have had enough, or in rare circumstances, may be forcibly removed if they fail a medical check.

The first season of Alone Australia saw its contestants take on the wild west coast of Tasmania in the middle of winter.

For season two, a new group of Australians will be dropped off in New Zealand’s wild South Island (Aotearoa’s Te Waipounamu) to battle extreme weather, wild terrain and other challenging circumstances.

Below, we introduce you to the 10 new brave Australians taking on season two of Alone Australia.
