REDLANDS film students will have the chance to gain valuable work experience when filming starts on television show Holey Moley in October.

Eureka Productions was looking for university students to gain work experience on set for its first Australian series of the US reality show,to be filmed at Thornlands.

Students will have the opportunity to see and learn first-hand about the operation on set of the production and editorial departments.

Mayor Karen Williams said it was an exciting opportunity for film students.

"I encourage all film industry students to take advantage of this unique opportunity to work on a large-scale production in their local community," she said.

Cr Williams said the decision to base the family-friendly entertainment program in the Redlands would have many benefits for the community.

"As an added bonus for locals, Eureka has implemented COVID-safe plans so Redlands Coast residents can experience a free and unforgettable family-friendly event as an audience member."

Holey Moley features golf lovers competing on a supersized miniature golf course, with obstacles and twists along the way.

It will go to air on Channel 7 in 2021.

Students will need to get in quick and submit a cover letter outlining their area of interest, and a resume, including their place of study, to holeymoleytvshow@eurekaproductions.com.au by Wednesday.

Redland City Council is a participant of the Film Friendly Pathways program, which sees local councils across the state work with Screen Queensland to promote their regions to interstate and international production companies.
