Every year, Australia bears witness to a new set of stunning local lasses vying to steal the heart of one very lucky bloke.

Aiming to steal the heart of Locky Gilbert this season, we’ve got models, makeup gurus, travel enthusiasts and a lot of beach fans (or more accurately, beach photoshoot fans).
