You probably can’t didn’t work to determine the hype surrounding Australia the Movie, particularly if are living in Australia. The movie recently been released onto DVD bringing with it numerous more reviews and comments.
Most would agree that it’s a great love story. Some critics have even said it reminds them of the classic films including Gone with the Wind or Out of Africa.
That said, there appears to be described as a few points that consistently come up in regards to the films length along with the quantity of themes that Baz attemptedto cover. The main problem looks like it’s who’s should be 30 minutes shorter. Others have declared that the film really should have been turned into two movies as there really were too many themes.
Nicole Kidman came under unnecessary attack on her role as Lady Sarah Ashley, for me! If anything Hugh Jackman’s over use with the Aussie slang Crikey was at times somewhat cringey for me personally!
At least there is something that we all appear to agree with which is the scenery, particularly of the outback, Darwin Harbour and the cattle droving scenes. If you are planning the next day at Australia and want to find out some of that scenery, where do you go?
Well you should probably have a vacation to Darwin should you liked the Darwin Harbour scenes. That said, those scenes were actually filmed in a tiny town called Bowen in Queensland. Unless you are a complete film buff, I wouldn’t necessarily make the trip to Bowen.
Head to the Kimberleys to try out the stunning outback scenes. The Kimberleys are in the far West of Australia and will just be visited between May and October. Outside of these months it’s the wet season which makes it pretty impossible to get around with a lot of roads closed due for the flooding.
To get here you’ll want to fly to either Broome or Kununurra. If your time the following is limited then fly to Kununurra. From here you might have access on the Cockburn ranges that have been a huge feature within the movie. You can also look at the Bungle Bungles from this point too. Why not add for the experience by staying with a traditional homestead. I’d recommend either El Questro or Home Valley Station. Both of these are within 3 hours of Kununurra.
If you have additional time then fly to Broome. Enjoy a couple of days here and will include a visit to Cape Leveque’s secluded beaches. Then go ahead and take 3 hour drive to Broome where you can start your,4WD adventure down the Gibb River Road. The road itself is unsealed and Coober Pedy (click this site) it is over 700km. At the end of it you will find El Questro or Home Valley.
It’s unfortunate how the Faraway Downs Homestead where Lady Sarah Ashely lived is just not open on the public. You can however fly over it with a scenic flight in the event you so wish.
If you fancy conducting a cattle drive, then you need to wait until 2010 to the Great Australian Cattle drive. You don’t need any specific experience so don’t be concerned should you are not as good as Hugh or Nicole with a horse. Access comes from South Australia.
Hopefully you can have enough to start out planning tips on how to like a part in Australia the Movie.
