The Block hits an incredible milestone in 2024
Heading into a huge 20th season
Television’s toughest building challenge headed back to the suburbs of Melbourne, with host Scott Cam, welcoming a new batch of eager Blockheads to build five family homes.
In what sounds like the stuff of fairytales, The Block 2023 was nestled on Charming Street in Hampton East – a suburb with family charm, wide streets, houses with character, and easy access to community services, parks and retail.
The 5 houses? The tough task was to extend and expand them into the ultimate family home! The Block juggernaut brought new format beats, new challenges and heaps of drama to passionate audiences across the country.
Contestants compete for the chance to walk away with $100,000 prize money and any profit made when their homes went under the hammer at the live auction.

Creative Execution Examples
How do we drive new downloads of the domain app each week to explore the exclusive property listings?
2021 saw a record year for the property market and Domain understands that for those in the process of buying and selling property, it is one of life's most stressful decisions.
Domain wanted a single-minded approach to this year's The Block partnership, where all integrations focused on delivering a consistent brand message driving app downloads and listing views.
A partnership between Australia’s home of property, Domain and Nine’s No.1 rating renovation program, The Block, was the ideal way to showcase all the ways the Domain app can help property owners and seekers buy, rent, or sell their home, feeling confident in the process.
Domain’s in-program integration was celebrated across the entire block journey.
With help of Nine, Domain built an integrated partnership using the full suite of Nine’s ecosystem. A multi-channel approach, involving the digital integration of each party’s channels, enabled Domain to present bold, engaging integrations for all key property moments throughout The Block’s season.
Nine contributed to this seamless integration, building Domain’s app features which were proven to help contestants and allow them to create their own exclusive listings. Domain talent was also present throughout the series to bring an approachable expertise to important property moments.
To further enhance the integration, Nine also created bespoke and exclusive content which was housed on Domain’s own channels to engage both fans of the show and consumers in the property journey. The ongoing collaboration at all levels allowed for successful integration within The Block.
The campaign was a huge success, achieving record goals year-on-year:
• 118% increase in listing views
• 594% increase in total app views
• A highly engaged audience across The Block content on Domain, with a 60% increase in article page views
Domain are committed to working on more innovative ways to integrate their sponsorship for years to come.
