CinefestOZ 2016 Film Prize Finalist, Jasper Jones was shot in the historic timber town of Pemberton, the perfect town to capture the lush countryside that is so well known in the South West region of WA and bringing the fictional town of Corrigan to life,
To help fans locate some of the buildings that appear in the film, the South West Development Commission has worked with stakeholders to produce a free handy guide to filming locations. SWDC acting chief executive officer Anna Oades said people were encouraged to use the brochure to help them “follow in the footsteps of Jasper Jones”.
“Pemberton shines in this movie and it’s not hard to see why. It really is a special place in our wonderful region that has plenty to interest visitors,” she said.
“We invite people to take the time to see where Jasper Jones was filmed and explore what the town and surrounding areas have to offer.”
The filming locations guide can be downloaded from www.australiassouthwest.com or www.swdc.wa.gov.au , and collected from selected visitor centres. SWDC is part of the West Australian government and works to make the South West region an even better place to live, work and invest. Strengthening the economy and improving quality of life are key areas of focus.
