Filming In Australia
Australia is known around the world as one of the most popular production destinations with consistent weather, stunning coastlines and highly sought after crews. Many have noted that Australia leads the world as an ideal and versatile shooting destination.
Australia offers international productions a wide range of location possibilities - with picturesque coastlines, pristine mountain ranges, sand dunes, natural rainforests and a world heritage listed coral reef, all within close range of airports and transport.
New South Wales, Australia’s most easterly state, has been used as a location for several notable films. The dusty desert scenes in Mad Max, for instance, were filmed in the country town of Silverton, and the lush, green scenes in Babe were filmed in and around the rural town of Robertson. Sydney has also been the backdrop for several films – including Dark City, the Matrix, and Mission: Impossible 2.
With its modern, urban landscape, Sydney is an ideal set location. It offers a diversity of scenic possibilities – with its colonial architecture, spectacular harbour views, exclusive waterfront properties, Chinatown, waterside casino, and buzzing entertainment quarter.
Sydney also boasts some of the best creative and technical freelance crews, equipment and service providers – all of whom are familiar with the various industry requirements. With nearby rail, sea and air services, we have skilled freight forwarders and couriers to manage the high demands for speedy turnarounds and fast delivery.
Importantly, Sydney is certainly an internationally recognised tourist destination, with a robust transport network. The city is serviced by domestic and international airlines, train and light rail facilities, a comprehensive bus network, and several taxi companies. Sydney also has an abundance of rental car, limousine and chauffer services on offer.
