Posted by

Based on the New York Times 2018 best seller of the same name by Karin Slaughter, Pieces of Her was filmed in Georgia and the New South Wales region of Australia.

The thriller, revolving around a young woman piecing together her mother's dark past, is set in the fictional town of Belle Isle in Georgia.

Pieces of Her locations

The Netflix series was originally supposed to be filmed in Vancouver and British Columbia, Canada, but the pandemic delayed and relocated that section of the shoot to Australia.

From the producers of Big Little Lies and The Undoing, the series stars Australian actress Toni Collette (Hereditary, Knives Out) as Laura Oliver. Her daughter, Andy, is played by Bella Heathcote (Neighbours, The Man in the High Castle).

Here is our spoiler-free guide to all the filming locations of Pieces of Her.

Welcome to Belle Isle, Georgia

The small, sleepy beachside town of Belle Isle is an amalgam of several locations.

The local press reported that the production was filming on Mallery Street in St. Simons Island, Georgia, in July 2021. The first scene with Andy cycling her bike was filmed here.

Built in 1882, this $60 million privately-owned historic home is a rare survivor of a group of similar grand residences located on the southern shore of Sydney Harbour.

The current owners bought this property, featuring ornate ceilings and magnificent stained glass windows, in 1997.

Since then, the family has spent many years restoring and renovating the home which was in a state of disrepair.

Thank you so much for the post, it was very useful. I was confused and distracted by the locations!

When Andy meets Mike at pier 28 in San Francisco, she's actually in Darling Harbour. The diner scene when she meets her mum is the Blacktown drive-in in Sydney.

These places over in Savannah, Georgia, are familiar! I especially love the beach there and I just can't stop looking at the features on this page. I really want to go back there so badly!

The car dealership that is shown in episode 3, where Andy purchases a car, is located in Marietta on South Cobb Drive, Cobb County, GA. It's about 15 mins outside of Atlanta.

The scene of the town of Carrollton, GA, is correctly filmed in Carrollton, GA.

   I have lived in Carrollton, GA, since I was three years old, and none of the Carrollton scenes were actually filmed in Carrollton.

The cemetery scene was filmed at Waverley Cemetery in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

   Not quite. It's Botany Cemetery in Sydney, overlooking Botany Bay. The mausoleum isn't real, but the paved square atop the mound is. It's the highest point, in the middle of the cemetery.
