The Block’s 2022 season is reportedly headed to country Victoria.
According to the Herald Sun, the renovation show is going to be filmed in Gisborne South in the Macedon Ranges Shire – in what would be a first for the franchise.
A 79-acre property was recently purchased for around $11million, and the land has been subdivided into seven lots.

Gisborne South is a 40-minute drive from Melbourne and is known for its vineyards, olive groves and alpaca industries, while the property itself boasts incredible views of Mount Macedon.
When asked about the rumours on Saturday, The Block creator Julian Cress told the publication: ‘While I can’t confirm any rumour about where we are going next year, lifestyle properties in regional areas sounds like a great idea.
‘If the rumour is true, whoever thought of it is a genius. The Block from its inception 19 years ago has always been about aspirational living for Australians.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for further comment.
It would make sense that The Block would film in more regional areas, after so many during lockdown have wanted to swap bustling city life for somewhere much quieter and open.

The current season of the renovation show was filmed on a cul-de-sac in the suburb of Hampton.
This year’s contestants have spent the last few weeks renovating their homes in front of a national audience.
Earlier this month, realestate.com.au revealed the price guides for all five properties on the show.

The homes being featured on the renovation show are expected to sell for between $2.6million and $3.4million.
Four of the homes are single storey, except for a two-storey home being renovated by Kirsty Lee Akers and Jesse Anderson.
The auction will be held during the show’s final episode, which is slated to air on Sunday, November 7, according to TV Blackbox.
