It is designed to satisfy all the production needs and requirements of the modern filmmaker, MCCS is part of Docklands redevelopment in Melbourne and it is only few minutes from the centre of the city.
The Docklands is prime spot in the city for business, entertainment, and leisure. It is filled with serviced apartments, waterfront hotels, restaurants, bars and cafes all within strolling distance.

All Stages have silent air-conditioning with ample 3 phase power and parking. Attached to each stage are buildings that house comprehensive production support facilities, including make-up rooms, green rooms, star dressing rooms, and general-purpose spaces. Upper floors house self-contained production offices with full telecommunications and computer networking facilities.
The Complex also has a warehouse/workshop area of over 6,793 square metres (73,096 square feet), which has access to full telecommunications and computer networking facilities. This area can also be used for storage.
MCCS also has plans to expand with a multi-story office tower being considered that will house a variety of service companies associated with the industry.
For more than ten years, MCCS has been the choice facility for filmmakers not only in Victoria and Australia but also those from other countries shooting in Australia. The studio stands out for many reasons. This includes;

The location also means that there are scenic views all around. Directly across from Melbourne Central City Studios is the waterfront precinct of the Docklands. Included in this area is Waterfront City that hosts a unique production lifestyle with apartments, restaurants, bars, fast food/convenience stores all at arms.
