The Gold Coast is famous for its beautiful sub-tropical climate and diverse range of accessible locations which allows for any landscape to be replicated within the region. From emotive city or country scenes, beautiful beaches and subtropical rainforests, to a unique blend of architecture, scenic roads and city locations, the Gold Coast offers production companies with easily accessible locations within a 30-minute radius of the Village Roadshow Studios.

The City of Gold Coast is also the first city in Australia to invest in 864-core carrier-grade fibre optic networks with the capacity to deliver 1Gbps internet service. This is 60 times faster than the average Australian internet service. Our aim is to provide a digital infrastructure network that has greater capacity and an efficient, cost-effective way to move large footage files overseas during production.
