Netflix releases trailer for Aussie-first series filmed in SE Qld

Well, this is exciting!

Queensland is set for global streaming success this December, with Netflix announcing an international release date for the first ever Australian Netflix original series filmed and produced right here in Southeast Queensland.

The entertainment giant released a trailer for the eight-part fictional drama series, Tidelands, this week and it’s already gained a huge amount of love online.


Starring Home & Away and Puberty Blues actress Charlotte Best, as well as Fast and the Furious star Elsa Pataky, the series follows a young woman who after 10 years in juvenile detention returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay, where she’s plunged into a mystery and must uncover the town’s well-hidden secrets.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says Tidelands employed more than 500 Queenslanders across cast, crew and background extras and injected an estimated $12 million into the local economy

“Tidelands was filmed entirely in south-east Queensland, including Stradbroke Island, and will showcase our stunning locations to audiences in more than 190 countries,” the Premier said.

“There’s already enormous interest in this series ahead of its release and I encourage its fans across the globe to come and experience the scenery which inspired this original drama.”

The Australia-first Netflix series is set to premiere on December 14.
