Sydney movie locations

Thursday, October 5, 2006

Sydney is a popular location for film crews shooting movies, documentaries and commercials. Its harbour is a huge drawcard, as well as its old and new buildings and winding streets.

A 1.5-hour walking tour starting in Martin Place takes you to some of the very recognisable locations which have been used in all sorts of movies. The Matrix, Babe: Pig in the City, Mission: Impossible II, Moulin Rouge, Muriel's Wedding, Strictly Ballroom and the new Star Wars have all had segments filmed in Sydney.

Follow in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Heath Ledger, Naomi Watts, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves and many others.

Half-day Toyota Coaster tours pick up in Kings Cross and the city in the morning. Travel through the city and to inner suburbs which have been used as locations. Visit the Imperial Hotel in Erskineville and see where Priscilla and friends took off in their bus.

Afternoon tours pick up in the city and Kings Cross and take an easterly route through Elizabeth Bay, Darling Point, Rose Bay, Waverley, Bondi, Coogee and La Perouse.

You will receive a welcome pack with film history, Sydney movie list and discount vouchers and there's a prize for winner of the tour.

Bus tours have on-board commentary and film recalls, a copy of Filmink magazine, water and lollies and there is usually a singalong and trivia quiz.
