Based on the bestselling book by Holly Ringland, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart was filmed in New South Wales and the Northern Territory, Australia.

The series features great filming locations, including the Thornfield farmhouse, the fictional town of Agnes Bluff, and the landscapes and villages where the story is set.

Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alice Hart

The seven-episode series revolves around the journey of a young girl named Alice Hart (played by Alyla Browne and Alycia Debnam-Carey), who endures a traumatic childhood marked by tragedy and domestic violence.

After a devastating event, she is taken in by her estranged grandmother, June (Sigourney Weaver), on a flower farm.

Welcome to Wyuna, Thornfield, and our guide to all the filming locations of The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart. We will be updating and expanding this spoiler-free report each week as new locations are revealed.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart Locations

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart Location
We don't know the exact location of the house where the Hart family lives at the beginning of the series.

But judging by the establishing shots of the beautiful landscape, it must be on Harwood Island in the Clarence River Delta in New South Wales.

Located about 300 kilometers south of Brisbane, this stunning and ecologically diverse region of the Pacific Ocean provides vital habitat for a variety of wildlife species.

I understand that the old Macksville Hospital was also used for a location. Possibly hospital scenes and or police stations.

I mountain biked out to Simpsons Gap many, many years ago with a traveling buddy. What a nice memory. The site is gorgeous... even without the fireflies.
