Looking to buy film? Check out our online shop first if you haven’t already.

Want to add or update a shop to this list? Go to this page and tell us where you usually go to develop or buy film and we’ll add it to this list.

We’re compiling a list of places close to you where you can take your 120 or 135 film to develop or process!

Want to know where to bring that medium format film? Or looking for a place that develops slide film that’s close to your location? Some of these places also will have film in stock so if you are looking to buy film locally you can also give these places a go! If you are looking to develop film at home then check around and you will find some places also stock darkroom equipment like B&W developers, chemicals and other equipment needed for darkroom like paper, enlargers and scanners.

Update – Mail order processing: If you can not find a film lab close to you (e.g. in rural areas) then we have been informed that Peninsula Camera Centre supports mail order processing.

The following is a brief but in no way complete list of labs that still support processing in Australia. If you see something that is missing from this list, let us know – contact us!

Please note this list is purely for informative purposes only!
