Parramatta is a fantastic place to make a movie. It's fresh, modern, diverse and versatile. A multicultural population, large open spaces, contemporary city, suburban streets and the river make Parramatta an ideal location to capture the essence of Australia; or whatever you need - Its landscape can double for most places in the world.
