Filming and photography
Melbourne Avalon Airport offers production companies unique opportunities to access an authentic airport location, and is conveniently located only half an hour from Melbourne’s Docklands film and television precinct.
We have the capacity to accommodate large scale international feature films through to domestic television series and commercials, and many Australian television series, films and photo shoots have been produced at this unique location, including Lion, Kath & Kim and Rush, fashion shoots and more.
Not only can film companies access a broad range of airport facilities both ‘airside’ and ‘land side’, but they also have the benefit of having onsite airport personnel who are professionally trained in safety operations, and very familiar with film shoot production protocol.
