Council is keen to help filmmakers by increasing the number of potential filming locations in the Shire. If you’d like to add your property to the list visit Vantage Management, a commercial online database that is used by producers and location scouts.

Listing your property is free and the database contains no personal details, just a basic description of the property and photos provided by you. Your details will only be passed on to the producers once you have been contacted and agree.

Filming protocols

The Filming Protocol outlines the requirements of all councils and state agencies in relation to managing commercial filming applications.
