4. Scottish Highlands - Scotland
Who could forget the epic scenery and bloody battles which took place in Mel Gibson's 'Braveheart'? It would have been a crime to film these scenes anywhere other than the Scottish Highlands, so that's exactly what they did.

7. Kakadu National Park - Australia
The outback home of the famous Crocodile Dundee, the Kakadu National Park in Australia has played host to a variety of big budget films including, most notably, the 'Crocodile Dundee' movies.
8. Salzburg - Austria
The hills were alive in the Austrian town of Salzburg back in 1965, when Julie Andrews took on the roll of nanny to the von Trapp family and proceeded to sing and skip her way through the scenic Austrian countryside. Daily sightseeing tours are still available which take in all the most memorable locations from the film.
9. Tunis - Tunisia
Tunisia has seen some of the best known movies of all time filmed on its sandy desert landscape. None, however, have been bigger than the original Star Wars movie. The deserts of Tunisia were perfect for the planet of Tatooine and George Lucas returned to the same location almost 30 years later to work on the filming of the prequel trilogy.
10. The Whitsundays, Australia
Widely regarded as being amongst the best beaches in the world, the Whitsundays in Australia are one of the country's most visited tourist locations. What many people don't know is that the tranquil, idyllic white sandy beeches actually played host to the suspense thriller 'Dead Calm' starring Sam Neil and Nicole Kidman.
