Famous movie and TV filming locations

"Mad Max 2" (1981), Silverton, New South Wales, Australia: Welcome to Silverton, population as of the last census: 89. Either there’s something about the light here, or it looks like the very definition of a typical outback township, because films including "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" (1994), "Wake in Fright" (1971) and "Mad Max 2" were all shot in and around it. Mind you, "Mad Max 2" is set in a "maelstrom of decay in which ordinary men were battered and mashed," so think twice before you visit. Yury Prokopenko, Getty Images
