"Living in Melbourne for the last few months has been a joy. It is definitely a city that I would love to both live and shoot in."
Jordan Kerner, Producer, Charlotte's Web

The rolling green hills of Victoria's countryside and the period streetscapes of Melbourne transformed into 1950's New England to tell this classic tale.

Victoria's easily accessible and geographically diverse locations allow it to double for almost anywhere in the world.

Melbourne's busy city streets are shadowed by towering skyscrapers allowing it to replicate large North American cities such as New York and Chicago.

The city's modern appearance dramatically contrasts with glorious tree-lined streets and stately European architecture duplicating London, Boston or Paris.

From rolling green hills to stretches of arid land, and from breathtaking coastlines to small historic townships, the State of Victoria has the range of locations to satisfy almost any creative vision. The variety of locations within a few hours drive from Melbourne is inspiring.

The rolling hills of Greendale, just one hour from down town Melbourne, served as the farm locations for Charlotte's Web.
