Filming Locations


The Gold Coast has it all. From beautiful beaches and national parks to hinterland retreats, cane fields and sub-tropical rainforests, our unparalleled natural landscape plays a significant role in attracting national and international film productions to the city.

However, it is not the only feature attracting blockbusters to the shores of the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast boasts the largest studio lot in the southern hemisphere and has built a reputation for having some of the best crew in the world.

It is estimated that Village Roadshow Studios has attracted about $3.6 billion worth of film. Meanwhile, $1.8 billion has been physically spent in Queensland and on the Gold Coast. Big-name movies to film in the city include Aquaman, Thor: Ragnarok, Pirates of the Caribbean 5, San Andreas and Unbroken.
