Ramsay Street, The Neighbours Film set

Join us on this explore of the old abandoned neighbours set film set situated in Melbourne, Australia.

We just so happened to find ourselves in Melbourne when we got lucky to find a way into the old set of the decommissioned tv show. It turns out there was plenty to see here as everything was pretty much left as is once filming had wrapped up, now awaiting a swift demolition, we hope you enjoy the pictures!

Country GP & The Tribe

This film set was backdrop to a number of New Zealand film and television productions, including Country GP and The Tribe. Country GP was a 1980s New Zealand television drama series about a general practice doctor practicing in a rural central South Island town in the post-war years 1945 to 1950. It was pioneering in the casting of a Samoan in the title role. 66 episodes were shot over a year and a half. The Tribe was a science fiction drama television series shot for Channel 5 in the United Kingdom. It premiered in April 1999 and amassed 260 episodes. The Tribe is set in a post-apocalyptic city in which all adults have been killed as the result of an unknown virus. Its characters navigate the twin complexities of adolescence and anarchy.

Kingdom’s gone!

This derelict and forgotten film set was never actually used for filming as the movie was mothballed after running out of money. The set still stands waiting for its film crew and producers to perhaps one day return.

Exploring this abandoned movie set in the middle of rural New Zealand countryside was quite the experience, as we wandered through the film set which was designed to look more like Jerusalem than New Zealand it felt like we were entering some kind of cartoon world. Everywhere we ventured was artificial and built by film set designers, from the walls and floors to the odd props and building materials that were left lying around and never used.
