Awesome Aussie movie
8 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw a lot of this movie being made, in fact I met Ginger Meggs and other characters whilst the movie was being made. I have friends and relatives in the movie also, which makes the movie a personal favorite.

Set in and around the township's of Mittagong and Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW, this is a true Aussie film, filmed in one of the most picturesque parts of Australia. It holds a special place in my heart, just like another movie that is also filmed in Robertson in the Highlands, Babe. I guess it takes me back to simpler days, where children were easily entertained and having fun with friends mean't riding push bikes and making mud pies :)

I have been trying to find a copy of this movie for years, but have had no luck! If anyone is lucky enough to find this movie please let me know. :)
