Alone Season Two

Who is watching season two?

Any idea of which lake they were using for the filming?
Surely this is recognisable?

OK - so Alone Australia is filmed in New Zealand...

The boat to the start of the Milford Track passes right past here.

Yep,
Just like the most of the US Alone is filmed in Canada, Swedish Alone is filmed in Norway, German Alone is also filmed in Kanada.

I watched Season 1 which was filmed in Tasmania. I'm guessing the restrictions on hunting etc in Australia limits the available locations.
Ironically, I'm guessing they could possibly hunt Australian brushtail possums in NZ as they've become a pest there.

The lake they are using is Lake Te Anau - a substantial body of water with large parts of it only accessible by boat.
This makes me the first man to climb Mount Everest backwards, without oxygen...or even a jumper.

It looks like Season 2 will be much more interesting, with most if not all people actually equipped to give it a good shot, and with enough potential sources of food to avoid it just being an exercise in surviving starvation.

I've been through that area by road, that spot is not far from the road to Milford Sound. Some spectacular scenery around there.
I haven't started watching yet, but assume they are well spread out away from that specific (drop off?) location?
