Season Two and Three - 2014 - 2015
A heritage-listed Hunters Hill mansion - Clifton - became the home of The Bachelor franchise for seasons two and three, starring Blake Garvey and Sam Wood.
The stunning, 5,124 sqm estate has waterfront views with privacy (even from the riverfront) assured thanks to the 140-year-old Port Jackson fig trees that circle the battle axe Woolwich Road block.
Channel 10 was rumoured to be paying a whopping $25,000 per week to rent the property from its owners whilst filming the show.
Season Four and Five - 2016 - 2017
For two years the show was filmed in a swanky, two-story mansion set on a 2.02-hectare property in the semi-rural town of Glenorie, about an hour's drive northwest of Sydney.
Seasons Six, Seven, and Eight - 2018 - 2020
The Bachelor returned to its roots on Sydney's Northern Beaches for Nick Cummins, Matt Agnew, and Locky Gilberts' season of The Bachelor, setting up shop at Nelly's Farm, a Hamptons-inspired French Provincial estate in Oxford Falls.
Spread across five lush acres, the property was last purchased for $2.3 million in 2010.
Season Nine - 2021
In 2021, Bachelor Jimmy Nicholson moved into a gorgeous French Provincial mansion in the Sydney suburb of Dural.
The sprawling property, dubbed "Le Chateau" (which translates to "The Castle" in French), sits on five acres and features authentically French architecture.
Its meticulously manicured grounds are also a wonder for the eye, with Parisian park-styled landscaping and statues of different animals adorning its feature fountain.
Season Ten - 2023
To mark a decade of being on air, the show moved from Sydney to the sunny Gold Coast in what was a major shake-up for the franchise.
Women from all across Australia tried their hand at love, living in a stunning waterfront mansion whilst the three Bachelors shacked up in the Bachelor Pad, aka the penthouse of a luxury high-rise building.
Season Eleven - 2023
For the first time in the franchise's history, the show is moving out of NSW and to the state of Victoria and its capital city Melbourne.
"The secret with longevity in any relationship is to never take the other person for granted, and always be ready to reinvent the relationship as your needs change over time," long-time host Osher Gunsberg said.
"The relationship between The Bachelor franchise and our audience is no different, and taking this love story to Melbourne builds on the world's first season we have just seen, allowing us to take Australia's most romantic dating show to places it has never been before."
Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia's Head of Entertainment Caroline Swift said that Melbourne would provide the "perfect backdrop for love to blossom."
"A beautiful, sophisticated city filled with incredible restaurants, secret sexy bars, art galleries, live music, the list goes on," she said.
There is no word yet on when the new season will premiere, however given the last season started airing in January 2023, we can estimate it will air in January 2024.
According to the Herald Sun, the new Bachelor pad is located at 43 Middle Crescent, Brighton, a classic 1850s Victorian residence that has been lovingly restored.
It is unclear who currently owns the property, or how much Channel 10 has paid the owners for exclusive use, but given it was last sold for an impressive $6.5m in 2015, it's sure to be a pretty penny.
Complete with a swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, billiards room, bar, six bedrooms, three bathrooms with an additional toilet, and an expansive alfresco entertaining terrace (to say the least), we are sure our Bachies will feel right at home!
Curiously, the property is only a "stone's throw" away from where The Block 2023 has been filmed, on Charming Street in Hampton East.
