Location Services – a library of film locations from around New Zealand


Wellington City and its surrounding regions are simply one of the world’s premier film-making locations. The region is blessed with a huge variety of easily accessible landscapes, while the city is home to architectural styles from every recent era. And, as home to Sir Peter Jackson’s Portsmouth Studios, Weta Digital, Weta Workshop, and the Avalon Studio complex, Wellington can fairly claim to be one of the best-equipped film-making hubs in the Southern Hemisphere.

Use our menus and search function to find the location you need, and then contact us to arrange access. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, then let us know, and we will work with you to find the location you need.
