Move over Byron Bay! Why Adelaide is Australia’s new Hollywood hotspot – as a slew of major productions kick off in the City of Churches


Hollywood has well and truly come to Adelaide. 

The South Australian capital has become a new hot-spot for A-list productions of late, with the likes of Mortal Kombat and Zac Efron’s Stan Original film Gold recently filmed there. 

And it seems Adelaide’s Hollywood gold rush has just begun, as six major film productions are currently in production in the City of Churches, involving more than 400 local cast and crew.
