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/Irony as She Is Cast: Real Australian Nicole Kidman as the British Lady Sarah Ashley. You hire an Australian to make a film in Australia called Australia and then have her pretend to British. Otherwise she sounds just like Kylie Minogue.
  • 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.
