Filming Locations for Mako Mermaids and H2O: Just Add Water

Within the past couple of months, I have rewatched H2O: Just Add Water and Mako Mermaids: An H2O Adventure and discovered that it took place on the Gold Coast, Australia. Because we were going to Australia, I asked my mom if we could go and she said yes. Since then, I have been doing a fair amount of research to find the locations of where they filmed a lot of scenes. If you want to know the filming locations for Mako Mermaids and/or H2O: Just Add Water, keep on reading to see where we went.

To kick off the start of our Mako Mermaids adventure, we went to Nobby Beach. This is where they filmed a lot of scenes where the actors were just walking along the beach.

Next we went to Burleigh Head National Park, where they filmed some scenes of Mako Island. We were so impressed with this beach. It was really pretty, the water was clear and calm, and we saw a ton of fish!

After going to the most beautiful beach ever, we watched a clip from Mako Mermaids and decided that it was pretty similar. If you go to Mako Mermaids Season 3 Episode 11 and 10 minutes, see what you think about the similarities!

After the awesome swim at Burleigh Head National Park, we took a small trip to Rita’s House. Because this is actually someone's house, the photo is not the best. We were trying to be quick!

A couple of days later, we visited Sea World. This is where they filmed most of their underwater scenes and scenes at Sea World. This is called Shark Bay. Doesn't it remind you of the opening and closing credits?! I was pretty excited to see it.

See if you can recognize the H2O episodes where these photos took place.

After going to Sea World, we tried to find The Ocean Cafe. This is where IMDB thought it was.

This is definitely not the location as it is supposed to be on a pier, possibly near Sea World. When we looked at a scene with the cafe, we think that they painted a wall on a building saying The Ocean Cafe and put up chairs tables, and umbrellas. The interior of the real cafe was probably a set. We didn't get a chance to see if Rikki's Cafe was real or not.

My family and I had a great time on the Gold Coast and we are all sad that it is over. I hope that you found my Mako Mermaids Tour useful.
