Visiting Journalist Program

Our Visiting Journalist Program gives domestic and international media first-hand knowledge of Canberra and the region by providing ideas, information, itineraries and hosting services with the support from ACT industry partners.

We invite media to contact us with story ideas and we can assess if and how we can support the visit.

Please note that if you wish to film in Canberra, certain attractions and public places like lakes and parks do require prior approval for filming and photography, and approval can take up to a week. Without this approval, filming can not go ahead. If you are visiting through our Visiting Journalist Program, we can assist with the approval process.

All visiting film/television crews must carry public liability insurance to the value of $A10 million for the duration of their visit to Canberra.
