Queensland – Australia’s film friendly state

Beaches, deserts, islands, jungles, heritage architecture to futuristic cityscapes and more – Queensland is Australia’s most geographically diverse state.

Queensland is an easy double for many parts of the world including California, Hawaii, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Mexico, Vietnam, The Bahamas, the jungles of South America, rainforests of South East Asia, the European countryside, English streetscapes – and with built-up cityscapes, you can even double downtown San Fransisco like the producers of San Andreas did in Brisbane or Futuristic Tokyo in Pacific Rim Uprising.

To take advantage of these diverse landscapes, SQ facilitates the Film Friendly Pathways Program, cutting red tape and streamlining approval processes for filming.

The Film Friendly Pathways Program works with councils to offer you key benefits including:

> a ‘one-stop shop’ council appointed liaison for filming in the region
> recent and searchable location images tagged to each region
> low or no-fee permit applications for filming
> adoption of standardised and streamlined permit application forms for filming
> logistical advice and assistance to productions
> access to key locations under each council’s jurisdiction
