Tidelands Filming Locations: The spectacular setting where the series was filmed in Australia

Where was Tidelands filmed
Posted by
Tidelands is the first entirely original Australian series on Netflix. Set in the fictional small fishing village of Orphelin Bay, the eight-part supernatural drama centres on a mysterious group of people, half-humans and half-sirens, called Tidelanders.

Cal McTeer, played by Charlotte Best (Home and Away), is a young woman who returns home when the body of a local fisherman appears on the shore. She will try to uncover the secrets of the town. Spanish model and actress Elsa Pataky (Chris Thor Hemsworth's wife) is Adrielle, the obscure leader of the tribe. The main cast is completed by Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Marco Pigossi (seen in the Brazilian hit soup opera Edge of Desire), Mattias Inwood and Aaron Jakubenko (both from The Shannara Chronicles).

Tidelands was filmed entirely in South East Queensland in Brisbane. As usual, we will be expanding and updating this post about the filming locations of this new Down Under series as more info becomes available:

Tidelands filming locations
The establishing aerial shots of Orphelin Bay are from Dunwich, one of the tree small settlements located on North Stradbroke Island. This is the point where the passenger ferries arrive from the mainland.

Tidelands Location
Many scenes where recorded in the scenic sand beaches and wetlands of North Stradbroke Island. This is a large touristic island in Redland Bay, with plenty of interesting wild natural lakes and swamps, officially inhabited by only a little more than 2,000 souls.

Tidelands drehort
A lot of filming took place in the Sandgate and Shorncliffe area, including the beautiful Cabbage Tree Creek. Also a local newspaper reported that some more filming took place in the suburb of Salisbury in Brisbane, in a private residence on Rosebank Square and Lowndes Street.

Tidelands house location
The wonderful Tidelanders house looks more like a set than a real old manor. Screen Queensland confirmed that the production also took place at Cleveland, Victoria Point, Raby Bay, Mount Cotton, Ransome, and Steiglitz.
