Season Chronology

Australian Survivor (2002) was the first season of the Australian reality show, Australian Survivor. Filming took place in Eyre Peninsula, Australia. The premiere aired on Wednesday, February 13, 2002.

37 year-old Robert Dickson, a film director from Victoria, Australia ended up winning. He defeated Sciona Browne by a 5-2 vote, winning a AUD$500,000 prize.

Production

After the filming of Survivor: The Australian Outback, Australian television network Channel Nine decided to make their own version of Survivor. The producers chose 16 contestants to participate between May 3, 2001 - May 10, 2001. The season took place in Port Lincoln, South Australia. After 39 days of competing Robert Dickson was crowned the Sole Survivor by a 5-2 vote.

Twists

  • Self Vote: After three days of competing, Lucinda Allen-Rhodes asked her tribe to vote her out. At the first Tribal Council of the season Lucinda voted against herself. This is against the rules in the American version of the show.

Trivia

  • This season features the first time in the Survivor franchise that a castaway has voted against themselves.
    • This would happen again in the second season of Australian Survivor.
  • The winner of this season, Robert Dickson, died on April 11, 2009. Robert and his two sons perished in a car accident while on a holiday in South Africa. 
  • Australian Survivor had no slogan because other foreign networks owned the phrases 'Outwit Outplay Outlast' (U.S.) and 'Trust No One' (UK).
