Where Was The Movie Strangerland Filmed?
The movie Strangerland was filmed in Australia, especially around Sydney, Canowindra and Broken Hills.
The movie began its production in March 2014 from the capital of New South Wales, Sydney. The leading actress arrived in Sydney with her two daughters to star in the film soon after the technicalities were cleared.
For the rest of the parts, the movie was shot in the remote outback town of Canowindra and Broken Hill. Although the film is set in one town, the cameras were rolling for quite some time in Sydney before changing places.
Following their time there, the cast and crew traveled to Canowindra, followed by Broken Hill.
Canowindra is a small picturesque town in central western NSW of Australia. The crew of the movie turned it into Nathgari.
After wrapping up their shoot in Sydney, the crew moved on to the town for week-long on-location filming.
The small town is known to be the hometown of Richard Payten. The city is situated on the bank of the Belubula River and is best known as the Balloon Capital Of Australia.
For filming, The River Bank Hotel was made into Nathgari Library with various signs outside to assist the theme. Similarly, The Royal Hotel displayed a sign announcing the Mathgari Sporting Carnival.
Overall, downtown Canowindra was turned into a red dust-blown bush town beyond Broken Hill. The Strangerland team wrapped up the shoot in the town on April 10, after which the dust-strewed footpath and storefronts of Gaskill street were cleared up.
The city was back to being Canowindra from Nathgari once again pretty soon.
Broken Hill was the central filming location of Strangerland. The desert landscape of the city was featured in the film.
Broken Hill is an outback city far west of New South Wales. It was the first place to be listed as a Heritage city.
Strangerland is not the first movie shot in a city with a long mining history. Some significant productions like Mission: Impossible II, Godzilla: Final Wars, Dirty Deeds, Beyond The Wasteland, and Reckless Kelly, among others, have been shot there.
When the movie's plot thickens, various parts of the vast landscapes of Broken Hills can be seen so that the film almost gets lost in the Australian outback.
