The tiny rural enclave of Bonogin on the Gold Coast hinterland is said to be home to a few hundred residents, a general store and not much else.
But it will become a key location in Steven Spielberg’s $150m dinosaur series Terra Nova.
The Courier Mail reports it is a good choice for the project, with its sweeping valleys and meandering creeks very much reminiscent of the land before time.
Pre-production crews have been in Bonogin for several weeks working on the location set, and providing a steady stream of business for the otherwise slow-paced Bonogin General Store.
Several buildings are under construction and extras are being cast for a one week shoot in Brisbane prior to the Gold Coast.
The series will premiere on TEN.
