In the tradition of Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009), this is the story of a legendary, lovable red dog who roamed the outback looking for his original master, finding his way into the hearts of everyone he meets, bringing people and communities together, some who find love, and others who find themselves. Based on true events.Written by
There have been at least three major books written about Red Dog, the third of those, by British author Louis de Bernières, was the primary basis for this film. See more »
All the trains in the movies were hauled by either GE Dash 9 or GE Evolution Series locomotives, but these locomotives were only introduced to Pilbara region between mid 90s and 2011. In between 1971 and 1979, Hamersley Iron railroad mostly used Alco, and the livery back in 70s was yellow and blue. See more »
[to his bus passengers]
Did you see that?
Well, he almost got run over.
Nah. He was hitchhiking, mate.
Once you picked him up, he remembers, and thinks it's his right to demand a ride anytime.
Pushy bloke. No doubt about it.
He only does that to people he knows?
Of course not. Just the ones he likes.

The Red Dog film has been inspired by events, which may or may not have happened, but have become Pilbara Outback folklore. All the human characters in this film are invented, fictitious and imaginary. See more »

i was lucky enough to see this last year in Melbourne for a exclusive viewing, then i got to comment on what i thought of it. This movie is amazing. it is now my favorite movie. Now i know that people will be like... whatever. but i joined this website and took the time to let as many people as i can know that this movie is by far the greatest Australian movie ever. It makes so laugh and cry. It makes you fall absolutely in love with red dog and really appreciate the companionship of animals. I have nothing bad to say about this movie. I really suggest everyone goes to see this in the cinema. I have already planned to see it another two times. 10/10
