Ararat Rural City welcomes enquiries for filming in the region. With its contrasting scenery and mix of historic architecture, the region provides the perfect backdrop for a range of filming situations.

The choice of outdoor locations is supported by solid infrastructure and services and a film-friendly approach to facilitation productions in the region

Part of Ararat Rural City’s appeal is its variety. Architecturally, Ararat is renowned for its classic art deco buildings, many of which can be seen in the Central Business District. The city is also characterised by magnificent Victorian-era homes – a vestige of the wealth generated during the regional gold rush.

Beyond the city limits, dramatic mountain peaks give way to the Western District plains. The ancient Grampians ranges include pockets of rain forest and native bushland. Wide dirt tracks cut through harsh landscapes, lush, rolling hills and quaint village streetscapes.

This region is perfectly positioned to provide the perfect backdrop for any film project. Contact the Council’s Economic Development Unit to discuss other supports available.
