Location Filming and Photography

Sydney Opera House Filming and Photography Application

This is an application for location filming and photography on the Sydney Opera House site, which includes both exterior and interior locations. All commercial requests to film or photograph must gain prior written approval from Sydney Opera House. Film and photography for strictly personal use does not require prior approval. Requests by media to film or capture photography on site should be directed to the Communications Team.

Sydney Opera House abides by Screen NSW’s Film Friendly initiatives and will work to facilitate on-site filming and photography requests where it can, provided these requests do not interfere with our day to day operations, sponsorship agreements or commercial revenues. 

If the information you provide in this application is inaccurate it may lead to the cancellation of an approval at any time.

The following document is an application and does not constitute a filming permit or location/licensing contract.

All requests for filming and photography must be carefully managed to ensure the safety of everyone on site and to protect the Opera House's significant heritage values.
