Whatever the size or scale of your production, Moyne Shire provides a stunning backdrop of diverse landscapes – rugged coastline, pristine beaches, Victorian era buildings, agricultural plains and rural townships.
Moyne Shire Council has supported many film and television productions and events across the Shire and encourages organisers to contact Council's Economic Development team to discuss partnership opportunities.
You may need a filming permit if one or more of the following conditions apply:
If your filming does not involve any of the above, it is considered ‘low impact’ and you are not required to notify Moyne Shire Council.
To fly your drone in the Moyne Shire you only need permission from Council (not a permit). Council will automatically give permission provided you have authority from CASA and the Police as per the guidelines below.
If you wish to film with a remote piloted aircraft (RPA) or drone, please refer to the guidelines below.
Guidelines for the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) within Moyne Shire.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) provides general regulatory controls for the safety of air navigation throughout Australia. In addition to meeting CASA requirements, operators are also required to obtain permission from the Local Council or Landowner before operating an RPA.
Permission is required to be obtained from Moyne Shire Council before any RPA activity is permitted to take place within or above the municipality’s Public Open Space.
To apply for a Filming Permit or if you have authority but need permission to use a drone, please contact Council's Economic Development team of 1300 656 564 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
