Trivia

Filmed on location in Woods Point, Victoria, Australia. Woods Point is and would be considered a rural mining town that hasn't changed a lot in the 30 years since the movie's making. The surrounding terrain does look quite like a national park. See more »

Ricketts: The point is it's against the law, Gaz.
Gaza: What? To do what you and I were doing when we were kids.
Ricketts: Ah, yeah, but you and I didn't make railway bikes and gyrocopters.

The Quest
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that growing up and watching movies like this has made me who i am i'm a dreamer and i'm all for finding how if it's true or if it's all made up and this movie has it all from not wanting to list to his dad to finding a truly fun thing to do with your day's and time...

i'd say this movie was truly great of the best and i have been LOOKING for years for this movie i growing up watch more movies then anything and this one always stuck in my head only i forgot the name and we are now in the age of DVD's and very little VHS's and you can't find anything.... on VHS's anymore..... I truly hope this movie comes out on DVD for it's movie i want all my kids and Gran kids and so on...... to watch for it's truly a family fun movie.
