I think I spotted author John O'Grady in the opening sequence where the voiceover bloke is introducing us to Australia and its customs.
Two blokes are in a pub having a beer. The voiceover bloke tells us, "These are called schooners," referring to the size of the beer glasses. Then the two blokes take a pull of their schooners. The bloke on the right looks just like O'Grady, whose photo appeared in his autobiography There Was a Kid 10 years later.
