Filming in Queensland
Queensland forms the north-east corner of the Australian continent and with an area of 1.8 million square kilometres or approx. 695,000 square miles, is the country's second-largest State.
A relaxed lifestyle centered around the outdoors, lower cost of living and easy commuting make Queensland one of the most attractive places to live, work and visit in Australia.
Queensland is a State of many and varied landscapes, ranging from the northern tropical islands of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef to the wide open spaces of the famous Australian Outback. Mountain ranges with World Heritage-listed rainforests, amongst the oldest in the world, offer spectacular vistas of waterfalls and lush vegetation.
Queensland is not only a place of varied and beautiful scenery; it is also home to a wide variety of population centres ranging from sleepy country towns to bustling, sophisticated cities. It displays diverse architecture comprising stately sandstone buildings set amongst ultra modern sky scrapers in the State’s capital, Brisbane, to rustic beach cottages and inspiring lifestyle resorts on virtually deserted golden sands on Queensland’s north coast. Travel out west and find rustic, sprawling cattle and sheep stations set on endless open plains, then head towards the south coast for the Gold Coast’s glitzy, glamorous nightlife, modern towering highrises and multi-million dollar canal homes and penthouses overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
All of Queensland's major centres, such as Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Cairns, offer world-class shopping and dining experiences, nightlife and entertainment venues.
Queensland experiences an almost perfect sub-tropical climate with an average of 300 sunny days each year. Queenslanders enjoy more winter sunshine and warmth than most other Australian States, with average summer temperatures around 25 degrees Celsius (79 F) and average winter temperatures of 15 degrees Celsius (58 F).
Queensland’s current population of over 4 million has discovered the state is a refreshing and enjoyable place to live an work. Queensland is an ideal location for filming, with friendly, helpful locals, fantastic choice of locations and a firmly established film infrastructure.
