Mad Max Filming Locations
Port Melbourne Gasworks

The interior of MFP headquarters, and the "Halls Of Justice" gates exterior, were filmed in the area of the old Port Melbourne gasworks. The area has undergone a lot of change in the past 30 years, with some buildings demolished, and others remodeled. The gasworks are now gasworks park, which is a park and theatre. I believe that some of the building exteriors may still match the original buildings, although the interiors have been completely redone. It is difficult to match anything to the film from gasworks park itself - although if anyone has managed to match anything up or identify anything, please do let me know.

 Nick Fatsis sent me the pictures below, the comparison shows what we believe are still some of the exterior buildings that are seen in the "Halls Of Justice" shot, now remodeled into apartments. This picture is taken from the corner of Beach St and Dow St, you can find this on Google Street view if you want to see precisely where this shot was taken.

Note that the Fifi's office, the MFP courtyard and some other exteriors were filmed at the Spotswood Pumping Station, and the underground garage was filmed at Melbourne University.
