Trivia: Australia

The film:

  • Actor Allusion
    • In a possibly unintentional one, David Wenham plays a completely evil bastard named Fletcher, just like in The Proposition.
    • The ranch owned by Lady Ashley's husband is called Faraway Downs; Nicole Kidman also starred in Far and Away.
  • Fake Brit - Nicole Kidman as Lady Sarah Ashley
    • She's Australian. You hire an Australian to make a film in Australia called Australia and then have her pretend to British. To be fair, otherwise she sounds just like Kylie Minogue.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • Neil Fletcher, the villain of the film, bears a striking resemblance to Faramir.
    • He would also seem to be a descendent of Eden Fletcher from The Proposition, who was also a Smug Snake and was played by the same actor.
  • Prop Recycling - Large amounts of the Japanese air raid effects were re-used from Tora! Tora! Tora!, resulting in footage showing ships that were not present and showing the use of torpedos instead of the 600kg bombs the Kate bombers historically dropped.
