Where Was “Anyone But You” Filmed in Australia?
The allure of the silver screen often transports us to exotic locations, allowing us to experience the magic of distant places from the comfort of our seats. In the case of the much-anticipated film “Anyone But You“, that magic happens right on our doorstep, in the breathtaking city of Sydney, Australia.
This film follows the story of Bea ( Sydney Sweeney) and Ben (Glen Powell). They may look like the perfect couple, but after an amazing first date, something happens that turns their fiery hot attraction ice cold. That is, until they find themselves unexpectedly thrust back together at a destination wedding in Australia. So they do what any two mature adults would do: pretend to be a couple.
After shooting two movies here, director Will Gluck holds a special affection for Australia. Recently, he admitted that one of his primary goals in creating “Anyone But You” was to showcase the romantic beauty of Sydney.
“I specifically wrote this movie for Sydney because I wanted to spend four months in Sydney with my family and my friends. It was selfish, but I was confident the cast would fall just as much in love with the place as I had. And they did,” Gluck shared in a press release.
The romantic comedy not only promises laughs, but also serves as a visual ode to the iconic landmarks and scenic beauty that make Sydney unique. So, let’s find out the “Anyone But You” filming locations in Australia.
“Anyone But You” Filming Locations
The film truly encapsulates Sydney’s charm, with scenes shot not only at iconic locations like the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, but also at Bondi Beach, Palm Beach, the Rocks, and the Sydney Cricket Ground. A particularly spectacular highlight was the team’s seven-night shoot on a superyacht, gracefully sailing across the enchanting Sydney Harbour.
One of the standout moments in the film unfolds on the steps of the Sydney Opera House, where Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell share a passionate kiss. The Opera House becomes a symbol of romance and a key setting for the movie’s memorable scenes.
The actors were spotted filming on a yacht around Pittwater, capturing the natural beauty of the harbour and enhancing the film’s romantic allure.
Filming also took place around Sydney Harbour, including around the Harbour Bridge, the Queen Victoria Building (QVB), and Marks Park in Tamarama. Other Sydney filming locations include Double Bay, Surry Hills and Barangaroo.
“Anyone But You” emerges not just as a romantic comedy but as a cinematic love letter to Sydney, Australia. The film showcases the city’s diverse landscapes and iconic landmarks, offering audiences a visual feast that reflects the romantic energy unique to Australia.
“Anyone But You” hits cinemas on Boxing Day, December 26. You can book your tickets now.
