The Nine in Six building team kicked off work on The Block's 20th season on Phillip Island late in 2023. Things have been kept under wraps after the team built a very large fence to keep keen eyes away before filming kicks off.
Filming has been confirmed to start in February this year, meaning The Blockheads of 2024 will have been chosen and notified and will be eagerly creating their own Phillip Island Block Pinterest boards I'm sure!
As The Block's 20th season prepares to kick off we cannot wait to take a trip down memory lane over the coming months of filming. There is no denying The Block has been a great launch pad for some now very famous faces!
Pictures this week have surfaced of the frames of houses at Phillip Island which confirms the Blockheads will be working on new builds!
Every year the casting director, Lucky from Lucky Break Creative, has the job of selecting the Block cast, last year saw a melting pot of drama, and a divide right down the centre, other years have produced life changing friendships.
With Block auditions closing late 2023, and filming set to kick off next month the contestants of 2024 will be preparing for the moment they arrive on Phillip Island, let's face it, The Block has produced some pretty famous faces to live up to!

Where is the 2024 season located?
It was confirmed in October 2023 that the home of The Block in 2024 will be on Phillip Island.
Just two hours from Melbourne and connected to the mainland via a bridge, Phillip Island offers residents the best of both worlds and is perfect for anyone hunting for a life in paradise.
It offers a bewitching blend of sleepy island life with metropolitan energy. It's a simple visit to the mainland to get your fix of the big city buzz... and when you're done, you can return to your gentle coastal paradise.
Images via realestate.com.au show a pool, tennis court and 10 buildings, the big question is what will they end up being? We actually cannot wait to see!
It may be an Island, but there's a lot to keep residents busy. Local shops and great cafes, walking trails, a winery, golf range and stunning parks and reserves makes this a truly spectacular place to live.
Phillip Island is already a holiday hotspot for Melbournians, and has become a household name across Australia thanks to its spectacular coastal scenery, unique wildlife, family-fun activities and thick bushland.
The area is home to one of the largest Little Penguin colonies in the world, with one of the most popular tourist attractions being the Nature Park's Penguin Parade.
The Block 2024 will be located in Cowes which is to the north of the island, where the median house price is $796k according to realestate.com.au, let's wait and see what happens when The Block comes to town.
There's also the opportunity to spot fur seals up-close, hand-feed kangaroos and watch whales migrating past in the winter.
The area is home to the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, which has become a must-visit for both auto-enthusiasts and general visitors thanks to its rich history and exhilarating events throughout the year.
Phillip Island is home to some of the best surfing spots in the country, as well as epic dining experiences and fishing spots. What's not to love?
Phillip Island is a great destination for our 2024 teams to renovate a home, and we can't wait to see what they create!
