If you’re looking to take your next production to a regional location, you’re not alone. The city can only tick so many boxes. As a location agency, we are experiencing an increasing number of clients choosing to take their photoshoot and film productions out of the city, travelling outside of central Sydney suburbs and into the surrounding areas. We understand that travel can be expensive and time consuming, and the result needs to be well worth the effort. That’s why we have collated our top 12 production locations outside of Sydney that are worth the travel, and will take your next creative production to incredible heights.


Being in the midst of a fast-paced digital revolution whilst a pandemic flipped the world on its head, the creative industry are simply trying to hold on and flow with the new era of creative production. Where creatives and brands were once required to work based from city offices, the pandemic has increased the number of people working remotely and operating from all over the state, meaning that regional production locations have become more central and accessible. The temporary closure of many businesses during lockdowns has resulted in tighter productions budgets, meaning that clients are now looking for versatile shoot locations with a multitude of background options ensuring value for spend.


If you’re looking for a reason to take your next production out of the city to a regional area, here’s three.


Anyone who has been on the set of a creative production at a city location knows that some of the biggest constraints on a shoot day is space, accessibility, and parking. The crew on set can range from 10 to 40 people and beyond, with a seemingly never-ending amount of filming equipment, furniture, lighting, props, clothing, hair and makeup supplies and more. That’s where a regional shoot location can be a huge benefit. Larger properties provide more shoot space, and larger grounds provide more wide-open space and parking options for cast and crew.


The effort of travelling may not be in the cards for some clients, who prefer to stick to the city. However, the benefit of choosing a regional shoot location is that your production gets a creative edge, standing out from your competitors with a less utilised and incredibly unique location and vistas that will leave your audience stunned.


A selection of our regional NSW locations conveniently offer shoot and stay productions, where your crew can stay overnight and greatly cut out travel and set up times.
