Island Wars

This all-new entertainment series sees Aussie and Kiwi teams battle it out in a series of hilarious challenges - to find out once and for all who is the best in this great trans-tasman rivalry.

Set on a paradise island near Aitutaki in the Cook Islands, the two teams face extreme challenges and crazy games with spectacular tumbles and splashes that will have the whole family laughing out loud!

Our 12 competitors represent the ultimate symbols of trans-Tasman rivalry from each country. They are the stereotypes that we all love, from the beauty queens (yes, Miss Universe New Zealand versus Miss Universe Australia) to the men of the land (remember that burly high country farmer who found Shrek, the never-shorn sheep? Well yes, he's on the island too.)

Split into two camps representing their two countries, every challenge is a deadly-serious contest between the Aussies and the Kiwis, except in the view of onlookers Mike Havoc and Dave Fane who will put all sorts of obstacles in the way of success.

Each week one competitor faces a weekly elimination, with one player leaving the island. In the series finale, there will be just four players competing from each team - the ultimate New Zealand vs Australia showdown - in an individual battle as they race to find the island's buried treasure.
