Commercial filming, photography and product promotions


Tourism is a major economic contributor to the Great Ocean Road region and we recognise the vital role that positive promotion through advertising, film and television can play in supporting the industry.

For that reason, we actively welcome and support those wishing to film in the area. Fees are set at a minimum to encourage promotion of the region through these mediums; however, conditions do apply.

The following fees apply for commercial filming, photography and product promotions:

  • Crews of less than 5 will be charged at $200 per hour
  • Crews of greater than 5 will be charged at $300 per hour
  • Commercial filming, photography or product promotions that require exclusive use of the site will be by negotiation, with a minimum of $1,000 per day.

Non-commercial filming, such as photoshoots for not-for-profits, community groups, charities and schools will not be charged, but do require a permit. 

Please fill out your details below and allow a minimum of 15 days for your application to be processed prior to day one of filming.
