Film Friendly City
Film producers, movie makers and commercial photographers are all welcome to film or take photos in our beautiful City.
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is a film friendly City, so we don’t charge application or location fees.
We hope our diverse range of neighbourhoods, wonderful parks, bustling main streets and leafy heritage suburbs will help inspire your next project!
If you’re not taking commercial film or photography, you don’t require a permit, but please be mindful of other people’s privacy and don’t film without their consent.
