LOCATION SPOTLIGHT: CENTENNIAL PARKLANDS, NEW SOUTH WALES



Centennial Parklands is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from the Sydney central business district and is central to NSW’s vibrant filming and entertainment industry hub. It is minutes from Fox Studios Australia, Australia’s Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS),  two multiplex cinemas and it is home to the Moonlight Cinema and Tropfest.

The Parklands boasts a number of independent and creative on-site businesses within the Moore Park & Centennial Park precincts.

Centennial Parklands offers varying landscapes such as pine forests, sloping fields, ponds, beautifully manicured gardens, bushland areas and rocky outcrops.

The Parklands also has an athletics track and stadium, a vibrant public golf course with one of the largest golf driving ranges in the southern hemisphere, an equestrian centre housing 5 riding schools and more than 200 stabled horses as well as playing fields and other sporting facilities. It offers a horse riding track and equestrian grounds, cycle hire and cycle track, not to mention a number of walking tracks.

The internal roadways within the Parklands can be safely cordoned off on a temporary basis with limited impact upon the public, ample room for unit base parking, a major feature and advantage for the production of feature films and TV commercials.

Last year over 170 commercial, film and photography shoots utilised Centennial Parklands. Most notably:

  • Gods of Egypt 
  • The Great Gatsby
  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine 1 &
  • Hacksaw Ridge 
  • Australia
  • Underbelly
  • Rake

Centennial Parklands is, in many ways, a blank canvas on which filmmakers and photographers have routinely created a variety of scenes and backdrops.

Over the years the Parklands have been transformed into the Canadian alps, a canal in Venice, an Egyptian market place and otherworldly planets for a sci-fi series. Anything is possible at Centennial Parklands.
