We support the creative industries in NSW by making our diverse and scenic Crown land available to filmmakers and photographers wherever possible. If you are planning to undertake any filming or still photography on Crown land you will need a short-term licence. Filmmakers and photographers should submit a short-term licence application to film on Crown land with as much notice as possible prior to your proposed filming schedule. We regulate film production to make sure these activities are carried out in a safe manner. It also ensures there is minimal disruption to local residents, businesses and other Crown land users.
Check your eligibility
- The licence is required for one of the specified short-term licence activities
- The duration the licence is required for is no greater than 12 months
How your application will be assessed
Applications are classified as either a 1A or 1B licence application.
