Thank you for choosing Roma Street Parkland as the location for your film or photo shoot.

Please note that filming, photography and media calls within the Parkland require approval before they can commence. 

News crews, wedding shoots and family portrait shoots do not require permission unless you are bringing a link truck, large group or infrastructure onsite. However, we advise that you check that there are no major events happening in the Parkland on the date you wish to be here. News crews are required to find their own parking offsite. They must also have station credentials visible or be able to present these if requested by Parkland Security staff.

Due to the volume of enquiries received, please allow a minimum of 10 business days for your application to be processed. Applications that do not receive adequate notice may be declined.


Non-commercial film and photo shoots are free (e.g. student film shoots) but do require approval before proceeding. Commercial film and photo shoots cost $600 for up to 4 hours per day and $1200 over 4 hours per day. Please note that if your shoot requires exclusive use of a space, access to power or infrastructure, extra fees will apply and will be quoted at the time of application.
