Late Show Locations

Anyone know which park the Oriental Shitscared was filmed in? Somewhere around Elsternwick/St. Kilda I presume.

Other places off the top of my head,

* Job Warehouse (Bourke Street between Exhibition and Russell)
* Dashboard Doctor (Sydney Road, Brunswick)
* The Padre Pio Church (Sydney Road)
* Stax of Slax (North Road, Oakleigh)

I have a sneaking suspicion it might be in Jasper Rd, McKinnon.
Could be wrong, but the park does look pretty similar.

They might mention it on the commentary of the best of DVD

Yeah,Stax of Slax is on North Road, close to the intersection of Jasper road in Ormond/McKinnon.

On the Best Bits Commentary they say Oakleigh, go figure.

It's still there, only it's now a grey whale and has red lipstick. Seriously!

I went there the other day (as you do) and it's definately not. Somebody told me it's in the St. Kilda Botanical Gardens.

Another location...

I'm certain that the menswear store where Mick bought the barstool pants was on Bridge Road, Richmond.

And I'm 99.9999% sure the actual pub he went to was the Bridge Hotel, before it was renovated.
