The cast and crew of Toggle Originals series The Distance Between travelled across three major Australia states (Western Australia, Southern Australia and Queensland) over a span of six weeks to film the 13-episode web series which stars Chantalle Ng, Richie Koh and Shane Pow.

After experiencing extreme weather conditions in the other cities, things warmed up considerably for the actors during their final leg of production in Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. It was not all work and no fun on set – and we were there to capture every moment of it. Watch our BTS videos below or click on for a glimpse at some of the on-set happenings.
