Parramatta is increasingly becoming a popular location to film. The City offers a bustling café and restaurant scene, modern high-rise buildings, iconic river and infrastructure, historic homes and versatile green open spaces, all located within easy reach of Sydney.

In recent times, Parramatta has been the location of great Australian films including The Combination, Cedar Boys, Casualty, Big Trouble and Little Fish and has been the prime filming location of the ABC’s newest series Crownies – an intriguing drama about lawyers working for the Public Prosecution.
