Here is your one-stop-shop for all the information you need to know about joining your favourite TV show either as an audience member or as a contestant. All shows are listed by their respective network and then categorised by city location. Generally most shows are filmed in either Sydney or Melbourne with some occasional exceptions.
All effort has been made to provide the most up to date information about recording sessions and locations. Some tips for attending a recording of a show as an audience member…
- Arrive on time
- Don’t be too early (you will most likely wait 30 minutes after designated arrival time anyway)
- Entering the studio first doesn’t mean best seats
- Eat before you arrive, some sessions can go for a coupe of hours, usually some lollies are provided (to give the audience a sugar high)
- Don’t be shy, ask questions about anything TV related, someone will most likely know the answer
– Enjoy yourself!
