Commercial Filming and Photography

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) supports and encourages both private and commercial filming and photography on land and waters managed under the Conservation and Land Management Act 1984 (CALM Act land).

The protection of natural, cultural, heritage and landscape values are key considerations when DBCA assesses applications for commercial filming.  It is therefore important that filmmakers and photographers consult with DBCA before commercially filming on CALM Act land, and that there are procedures in place to ensure the protection of an area’s acknowledged values.
