If you’ve watched the first two episodes of The Kettering Incident — a tense, claustrophobic slice of Australian Gothic that repositions Twin Peaks to the arse-end of the world — you’ll be wondering where it was filmed.
The answer is several different locations around Tasmania. The opening scene, for example, was filmed on the southern coast of Bruny Island off the south-eastern tip of Tasmania. The view behind Adam when he gets out of his ute is a bay called Lighthouse, and the towering sea cliffs are the same ones that Chloe drives Anna up to later in the episode.
Throughout the series you’ll find scenes in a number of other locations too, from a forest party to the local community hall where Anna is interrogated by police. Many of the actors are local too, including Matt Le Nevez (Offspring) and Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby). Tasmanian-born writer Vicki Madden, who co-created the show with Vincent Sheehan, is well known for her work on television dramas like Linda La Plante’s Trial and Retribution and The Bill. She was determined to give locals opportunities on the show and recruited 13 “attachments” to work with the cast and crew.
The series is a ratings smash hit and has given the State’s beautiful but often overlooked backblocks some global exposure. It’s a major boost for those involved as writers, actors and extras, and for property owners who allowed their land to be used as backdrops. The Tasmanian Tourism and Transport Forum says it’s already attracting international visitors.
