​​Western Australia offers spectacular film locations spanning a diverse range of landscapes.

​The State is renowned for crystal clear blue skies and long days of brilliant sunshine. The capital, Perth, is located only minutes away from beautiful beaches and historical buildings and towns. WA is a film-friendly location with minimal location fees and professional facilities.

Film permits

Many areas of Western Australia require permits for filming. Permits are needed for all National Parks, Aboriginal lands and many towns and cities.

For National Parks contact the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

Permission to visit and/or film in Aboriginal communities is granted through the Aboriginal Lands Trust at the Department of Aboriginal Affairs.

For all other inquiries contact the local shire or council in that area.

Media broadcast proposals

Tourism WA sponsors a small number of television broadcast programs that promote the extraordinary holiday experiences in Western Australia to audiences in Australia and our key international markets of the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Germany and Japan.

Proposals are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Applicants must complete an online broadcast assessment questionnaire, which outlines the essential criteria.

If you are seeking financial support for a film project please contact ScreenWest in the first instance. ScreenWest is the State Government agency that supports film, television and digital production in Western Australia.
