Australia The Movie

Hollywood Downunder
Before there was Hugh and Nicole, there was Mad Max, Priscilla and Mick Dundee. And with Australia the Country now distilled into Australia the Movie, George Dunford charts the history of our Big Country on the Big Screen.


The Battle For Australia
Few Australians realise the vast extent of tangible WWII history still visible today. But as the dust settles from the release of Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia, with the bombing of Darwin forming its dramatic centrepiece, AT sets out to separate fact from fiction, while providing you with your own key to the living remnants of this global conflict on Australian soil.


Bowen On The Big Screen
To nail the pre-war Darwin scenes, Baz Luhrmann filmed in tiny Bowen in Queensland. As Australia the Movie gets set to debut in cinemas around the country, AT talks to the woman who single-handedly put the small town on the Big Screen.


Experience Australia The Movie
AT invited some of the best operators from across the entire nation to show you how to enjoy the real star of Australia The Movie: our continent and its outback locations.
