"One of the reasons that we chose Melbourne was the city's alleyways," says Foster. "They were great, exactly what we needed. As for Melbourne itself, the central business district worked really well for us in creating a large Texas city. There was a huge amount of variety in Melbourne that allowed us to really play with the various locations."

"We had a particular need for deciduous trees to match the Northern United States. We found them all over the city and at various farm locations that were close. In fact, we build the farm environment for Charlotte's Web about an hour from downtown."

We have an extensive Locations Gallery to match the vision of your project and we can offer assistance with location scouting, script break downs and facilitate meetings with location providers. We’d love to hear about your project so please feel free to get in touch or set up a meeting with a member of our locations team.
Our breathtaking coastline constantly changes as you travel along one of our many magnificent driving routes. You’ll see rugged shores, jaw-dropping cliff formations, pristine beaches, deep blue waters and sleepy seaside towns reminiscent of New England. Stunning inland lakes, rivers and wetlands, sand dunes and rocky shores are all within easy reach.
Melbourne's history and wide ranging architectural influences have led to a collection of buildings and streetscapes that can double as almost any international location. Our busy streets, tree-lined boulevards and towering skyscrapers have been dressed to double for North American and European cities in the past, present, and future.
Victoria is the African desert, the Middle East and the Old West of the American frontier. It's a desolate planet or a futuristic wasteland. Our desert plains, sand dunes and Western style country townships offer an easy, comfortable location oasis for a range of location possibilities.
Our city has flirted with every architectural style of the last 200 years - colonial, art deco and post modern to name a few. Our early buildings were influenced by English and North American designs, while our more recent architecture reflects our cultural diversity and the worldwide shift to a modern aesthetic.
Victoria is the Garden State of Australia and the city of Melbourne abounds with manicured parklands and world famous botanic gardens. Lush rainforests with crystal rivers are an hour from the city and our old growth deciduous forests in autumn evoke Vermont in the fall.
Being home of Mad Max - the ultimate road movie - we know roads. You’ll find winding coastal roads, eight-lane freeways, crisscrossing overpasses and picturesque bridges all close to Melbourne.
Melbourne's ultra-modern architecture and towering skyscrapers allow it to replicate large North American cities such as New York City and Chicago. Turn a corner and you’ll find historic cobblestone laneways and preserved old-world charm. Turn another corner and you’re back in a New York alley covered in street art - all within a city block.
Quaint coastal villages, rural homesteads and country towns of a bygone era can all be found nearby.
As a thriving commercial city, our working locations are as varied as our many industries. Shopping strips, docks, mines, quarries, rail yards and warehouses – we’ve got the right spot for every urban scene.
The Victorian countryside is a landscape of endless diversity. Our lush pastures, rolling green hills and endless acres of wheat fields could double for locations as varied as Sussex, Iowa or rural France.
Within easy reach of Melbourne are snowcapped mountains (Australia receives more snow than Switzerland!) with alpine ski towns nearby to support production.
