Filming for the Kirra-themed episodes of the ABC's Australian Story, due to air later this year, went on location this week with the help of Beenham Valley Road podcast creator Jamie Pultz.

Mr Pultz, who ran the podcast as a meticulous analysis of Kirra's July 2014 death, announced the Australian Story episodes last month.

The filming took place at the "shed house" where Kirra's partner at the time of her death, "Jason", lived with another woman named Katy.

The final BVR episode aired last October but its popularity has endured, accruing more than 500,000 streams so far.

Mr Pultz previously expressed his pleasant surprise at Australian Story's interest in what happened to Kirra nearly six years on from her death.

"I just never imagined a year ago when we first started this podcast that it would end up on Australian Story," he said.

Kirra's body was covered in 105 "signs of recent injury" when she died, according to her autopsy report.

The Coroners Court of Queensland granted an inquest into the 27-year-old's death in May last year, one month on from the podcast's debut episode.

That inquest is still yet to begin.
