I'm pretty sure the infamous endless train crossing is also out Northcote way. And usually with TV shows they try to film as much outdoor stuff as close to each other as they can, so I reckon if you trawled Melbourne's north you'd probably spot a fair few locations.

The Cabana Motel where Glenn Twenty go to "The Headache Suite" is located in Park Street, St Kilda. I track it down one day about 2-3 years ago after listening the commentary of Bargearse knowing that still existed.

The bain-marie "Robo-Bargearse" targets on is in the ABC cafeteria (also where the sugar scene in Bad Eggs was filmed), that's the extent of my knowledge.

Late Show Locations- Things of Stone and Wood parody

Post by foolhardycousingeorge » Tue Nov 22, 2011 7:29 pm

I've watched the D-Gen's parody of Things of Stone and Wood's Happy Birthday Helen, which began with the lyrics;

'How could I forget that day,
Yeah, how we walked along the Yarra.'

For the benefit of non - Melburnians, here's a list of the locations that are mentioned, and appear in Just Run out of Melbourne cliches.

Firstly, the Nylex clock sits atop old malting storage silos next to the North bank of the Yarra, near the Monash Freeway.

The 'walk along the Yarra' was on a bike and pedestrian path found in the Alexandra Gardens.

Jason Stephens rides a bike on an overpass near the Palais Theatre in St Kilda.

The walk from the MCG to the Tennis Centre takes place in Yarra Park.

The Block Arcade is in Elizabeth Street.

The 96 Tram is shot going down Bourke Street, passing in front of the Coles Variety Store. Today, a Target store is on this site.

The You Yangs are mountains near a town called Little River, southwest of Melbourne.

The Victorian Tourist Bureau was in Collins Street.

The 'kiosk at the end of a pier' is in St Kilda.

Captain Cook's Cottage can be found in the Fitzroy Gardens, off Wellington Parade in West Melbourne.

Job Warehouse has officially shut up shop as of October 2012, I work next door at Play DVD and Music. There's some incredible stories about the history of that place, apparently the family that owns it owns most of the buildings on that end of Bourke st, and has crime connections. No wonder they didn't want a camera crew in there in the 90's!

I lived in that area for a few years and regularly drove down Sydney Road, but never saw the Dashboard Doctor.

Back in 1998, I was working in a stationery store/ maintenance department at a University.

I used to see invoices from The Bolt Bloke. By this time, The Bolt Bloke logo had changed. The anthropomorphic bolt figure had been replaced by some abstract looking symbol.

A few days ago, I visited Bermagui, as referred to in the Warren Perso film, Bermagui Bronze, in Tony Martin's sketch, The Last Aussie Auteur.

Bermagui is a small town on the south coast of New South Wales.

I was not in Bermagui long enough to find whether there is a surf life saving club there, or for that matter, an annual iron man contest in which gold, silver, or bronze medals are awarded.
