Film Friendly Council


Lights, camera, action! Wakefield Regional Council welcomes all film producers, movie makers and more to film in our diverse region.

Wakefield Regional Council has heritage buildings, endless fields and an eye-catching pink lake called Lake Bumbunga.

We are a film friendly region, which means we won’t charge you application or location fees. So, if you’re keen on safety and will cause little disruption to our residents and businesses, we're ready when you are.

Where would you like to film?


What to do

Private property

Please arrange direct with the property owners.

Public park

You probably just need to show us a copy of your public liability insurance, but if you need to take vehicles into the park, we need to check that they won’t cause any damage.

On a road

You’ll need to arrange for appropriate traffic management.

How to apply

Let us know your production details by contacting our offices on 8862 0800, who will step you through the application process.

Popular filming sites

We have some fantastic places in our region that film crews just can't get enough of. Below is a selection of photos that show-off some of these places for filming scouts.
