Bluey fans go wild over viral video showing the REAL locations from the hit children’s TV show – including some well-known Brisbane landmarks
A video showing the actual locations used in the popular ABC children’s TV series Bluey has gone viral on TikTok.
Bluey follows the adventures of ‘a loveable, inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler dog’ along with her family and friends.
The clip compares scenes from the animated show with the real-life street locations the creators used as inspiration.

Produced in Queensland, Bluey uses many Brisbane locations as inspiration.
These include well-known landmarks such as the Wheel of Brisbane, an observation platform and the South Bank Parklands, a major tourist destination.
In the clip, Bluey and her family are shown enjoying ice cream on a park bench, ‘dancing’ through a water display and walking through a park.
These scenes, based on the South Bank Parklands, were used in episode 47 of season two, titled ‘Ice Cream’, according to the video, which was originally posted on YouTube a year ago before resurfacing on TikTok this month.

Launched in 2018 on the ABC, Bluey was soon hailed for its refreshing characters – particularly Bandit as a capable and astute father as opposed to a bumbling background character common in kids’ programming.
It also earned rave reviews from critics and parents alike, who applauded its good-natured storylines and riffs on modern parenting.
One of the few kids’ shows enjoyed by parents and children in equal measure, Bluey would eventually go on to win a string of awards worldwide, including a Kids Emmy in 2019 for its tear-jerker episode ‘Sleepytime’.

In a list published by Rolling Stone of the top 100 sitcoms of all time, Bluey made 96, being the only Australian series to be featured.
The cartoon has become wildly popular in the U.S. after premiering on the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney+ in September 2019.
It remains the most-downloaded show in the ABC’s history.
