Move from the tall buildings out to the docks. Boats provide stunning locations for story-telling, mystery, suspense or travel themed creative work.

Birrarung has ample space for talent, cameraman, boom operator and an editor. There’s an area for the makeup artist to set up and ample space for wardrobe.
