The truck seen was actually a 1965 Army Truck. Three trucks were utilized for the production. One of the trucks took six weeks to build due to the number of modifications. One of the trucks had to be converted to diesel so it could drive through water for the river crossing sequences. See more »
Much better "Australian outback" movie than that stupid Croc Dundee.
People who live in the "bush" (no matter what country) have to be hardy, resourceful self-sufficient people. And of course this applies to both the "good" and the "bad". This movie shows that very well, without "preaching" it.
This movie is quite long. It was shown in Australia as a mini-series, spread out over two nights.
The bathing scene at the waterhole is very sensuous and beautiful. Quite erotic without being the slightest bit pornographic; and with no nudity as such!
Finally, a truly spectacular scene near the end, with the truck crossing the flooded Diamontina river.
