Filming locations

Post by Fanat » 29 Mar 2014, 16:01

This topic is about the filming locations of the first season. It seems to be a very interesting thing, doesn't it? :)

Note that the topic about the filming locations of the second season is here.

There are some filming locations that we have managed to find out using Google Maps, Google Street View, etc. You can see them in this KML-file for Google Earth (click on the icon to download):

You need Google Earth to open this file. If you don't have Google Earth, you can download it for free from here.

We will be happy to answer your questions regarding the placemarks in this file and the filming locations. :)

However, there are some locations we have not recognised. If you are from Australia or Poland, you can help us. ;) In Poland, we are still looking for the market place, the timbercutters camp, and some other places. Please let us know if you know anything about filming locations. :)
Australia’s like an open door with the blue beyond. You just walk out of the world and into Australia. And it’s just somewhere else. D. H. Lawrence.

Hi. I'm from Australia and I have always found spellbinder tv series interesting. I watched this when I was 12.
I live only 30 minutes away from camp Coutts where they filmed the camp. I am trying to find out if the energy doorway was filmed there too. As I well go explore and take photos of it is.

Also. The train station they use close to the camp etc is actually in Helensburgh. Which is only 10 minutes away from the camp. Door way.

I've found the school location also

Hi Loxon, and welcome to our forum!

It's great that you're from Australia and live not far away from Camp Coutts!

I visited Sydney in 2018 and visited all the known Spellbinder filming locations, including Camp Coutts! It was fascinating to be there! Though I found the camp site itself, I didn't find the doorway location. I went to the power lines nearby, but didn't find the place.

In my opinion, the train station is not Helensburgh but Glenbrook, in the Blue Mountains. If you look for its pictures in Google, you will agree that Glenbrook is more likely to be the location.

I have an idea on where it is if its actually at Camp Coutts. It's down a dirt track nearby. Otherwise, when Rhianna first arrived in Paul's world, they show a shot of Sydney from where they are. You can't see that from camp Coutts. And the shot was actually North of Sydney near Willoughby.

Yes, I agree that a shot of the City was made from somewhere in North Sydney. But I still think that the doorway was filmed somewhere in Camp Coutts or in its vicinity. When I visited Camp Coutts in 2018, I noticed that there is a power line right there, and its utility poles look like exactly as in Spellbinder. I even walked to the nearest utility pole but the area around it didn't look like in Spellbinder.

By the way, in the Russian section of our forum, we have threads concerning filming locations.

In there, you can find really much about filming locations of Spellbinder. Just use Google Translate to read these threads. :)
