The definition of 'sundowner' given in the film is not the most common one used in Australia. A 'sundowner' was the term used for a swagman who arrived at a homestead/ farm just on sundown, in time to ask for a meal or food but too late to be asked to do any work. The sundowner usually departed early in the morning, before anyone else was up and before being asked to do some work. See more
