South Australia offers a diverse range of locations including stunning beaches, farmlands, outback, wine regions and cosmopolitan cityscapes all within less than an hour of Adelaide Studios. From oceans to outback, urban to suburban, rural to surreal. From salt lakes to moonscapes, scenic countryside to rugged bushland, heritage buildings, desert scapes and dramatic coastline, it’s all on the doorstep of the state capital, Adelaide.

Adaptable, affordable and accessible.


The city of Adelaide is a sophisticated, vibrant city with world-class restaurants and cultural precincts which draw upon a rich ethnic mix. Known as the ’20 minute city’, Adelaide enjoys ease of traffic, a Mediterranean climate and a low cost of living which translates into lower production costs. The city backdrop features a wealth of options including heritage sandstone, ultra-modern architectural design and gritty back-streets.

South Australia offers an endless range of filming locations – unspoilt salt lakes and wetlands, expansive deserts, red outback and barren “lunar” landscapes. Whether you are searching for a heritage, contemporary or futuristic location, in a rural, urban or coastal setting – South Australia has it all.

Additionally, South Australia’s strong screen sector has highly experienced crew which go hand-in-hand with the state-of-the-art Adelaide Studios and Sound facilities to produce world-class results.
