Rosehaven, which is filmed entirely in Tasmania.
While viewers mainly associate the fictional town of Rosehaven with the Huon Valley town of Geeveston, many of the locations filmed for all three seasons so far have been in the Derwent Valley. In New Norfolk alone, locations in High St, Circle St, Pioneer Ave, Hamilton Rd, Sixth Ave, Blair St and surrounds have been hives of Rosehaven-related activity during the program's filming schedule this winter.
There has been speculation that the Lachlan property that served as the home of real estate agent Daniel McCallum (Luke McGregor) and his mother Barbara (Kris McQuade) will not feature in season three, but that a house in New Norfolk will be Daniel's new home. Big changes are predicted in the personal lives of Daniel and his best friend Emma (Celia Pacquola) as well as a real estate opportunity that threatens to divide the town.

The Tasmanian Government provided $500,000 to support the production of the third season of Rosehaven, which was filmed at various locations around the south, including Oatlands, Geeveston, New Norfolk, Longley, Richmond, Seven Mile Beach, Mountain River, Brighton and Chigwell.
The government also invested $950,000 in the first two seasons. Arts Minister Elise Archer said this year's production was expected to result in about $2 million being spent in the local economy, with more than 50 local cast and crew employed.
