Trivia

Today, the famous area where this film was mostly made, South Australia's wetlands and sand dunes district known as the Coorong, is under threat due to low water levels due to the water-ravished Murray River. The region is a habitat for migratory birds, the southern tip of it becoming highly saline which environmental experts are saying is having an effect on various pelican and bird populations.

Goofs

When Tom and Mile and Fingerbone return to the Coorong as the boat, "Tern" leaves Goolwa harbour, they are not towing Mike's raft but when they arrive back at the jetty, they are. See more »

Quotes

Tom 'Hide-Away Tom' Kingsley: The radio will tell you you need this or that and a thousand other things. You'll want more and more and you'll end up chasing a lot of rubbish.

found casually
12 July 2003 | by (Venezia, Italy) – See all my reviews

i've found casually in an obscure local tv "Stormy boy" and in the same moment i went in my youthness. This is a very delicate and intriguing movie. And i've rewiewed the boys, the wear, and a tipical manner of realization movies for children of the '70. i love the photography of this movie and his simplicity. Goodbye mr. Percival 8/10 my rating
