This eagerly anticipated drama tells the story of an English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman), and a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) who drive 1,500 herd of cattle across Northern Australia. Most of the film was shot in the Northern Territory and Western Australia, and the cast and crew spent months here making the scenes look suitably spectacular. But just what did they get up to, and where did they hang out? This video follows in the footsteps of Nicole, Hugh and Baz, and also includes some great clips from the film.

Before television and radio, there was a strong outback tradition of storytelling in Australia. Around the campfires at night people would spin their yarns, never letting truth get in the way of a good story. Fred comes from this tradition. If you are lucky enough to share a drink with him, you are sure to hear some fantastic stories. In this story learn about what Tent Boxing is, and hear a barstool yarn from the Last of the Showmen. less

This means unlike alot of ‘resort’ islands, Magnetic caters for all budgets. More than half the Island is national park and thus wildlife such as koalas, wallabies, possums and birdlife are plentiful. I didn’t interview a local on Magnetic, I decided I would just concentrate on the natural beauty of the Island. I got some great wildlife shots and the beaches and bays are to die for. less

Another must stop location on the backpacker migration up north. Had a ball in Airlie, went out on a boat yesterday to snorkel the reef. The colours of the coral and the diversity of the fish life just blew me away. Thanks to Jetstream for the trip. Also checked out the Barefoot Bushmans Wildlife Park where you can see a variety of Aussie wildlife including a great crocodile show (unfortunately the Park was recently closed). I then go out on a 54 foot Classic Schooner, the Atlanta , for a morning cruise before heading off to Magnetic Island. It’s a hard life….. In Airlie I decided that given it is such a big location for back packers, instead of interviewing an Aussie local, I would interview a back packer working at Airlie. A young Irish Lass, Jenni Higgins, working at the local Irish Pub. less

Once nothing more than sand fly invested swamp land, it is now highrise heaven, with a multitude of places tourist can stay. From Hippy to High Society. I am keen to interview a lady from the Gold Coast's social set. Someone with all the trimmings of wealth. Infiltrating this scene may prove difficult for a scruffy struggling film maker, but I have a few leads and a bucket full of charm, so anything is possible. I managed to organise an interview with editor of the Gold Coast Magazine, Jenni Purdy. If anyone knows the gossip on the Gold Coast Social set, Jenni does. less

Many of the original communes are still set up today. In recent times Nimbin has become infamous for it’s annual Mardi Grass festival which celebrates marijuana use. Interviewed Neil Pike, one of the original hippies to arrive in Nimbin in the 70’s. Living in the hills surrounded by lush forest, Neil has a great liitle home studio from where he produces music and multimedia artwork He states that his greatest acheivement was being one of the early activists who helped save the forests around Nimbin from logging. These early actions eventually lead to National Park classification. less

Once the centre for peace, love and alternative lifestyles, now home of a growing number of baby boomer 'seachangers' from capital cities down south. With this new mix, Byron is evolving, (and the real estate prices are going through the roof). Arrived in Byron Sunday night. Byron attracts creative types and also has a huge collection of practitioners of alternative health therapies. To try and capture this I am interviewing John Dahlsen an artist. John makes a daily trip to the beach where he collects plastic waste washed up the night before. From this waste he creates art pieces. I found his art to be like a double edged sword, I was both astounded by the beauty of his art, and repelled by the thought it was all collected from our beaches. less

The story goes that when deciding on a National Capital, those in Sydney and Melbourne wouldn't give an inch, so decided to locate a city between them. Arrived in Canberra by the red eye Thursday night. You could spend a week in Canberra just seeing exhibitions. You can visit the National Gallery, the National Museum, the National Library, the National Science and Technology Centre, Old Parliament House, New Parliament House, the Australian War Museum, the National film and sound archives, the national museum of erotica etc etc, I think you get the picture! Canberra is the first location where a story has fallen through. I wanted to take a light hearted look at Canberra's sex and drug laws, which are the most liberal in Australia. I tried to set up an interview with a Mistress, but had great difficultly getting a response. Strange… My back up story is on the Aboriginal Tent Embassy. Although you won't find it listed on any maps, it has been located at the front gardens of Old Parliament House for close on 30 years. I spoke with Darren Bloomfield, the appointed keeper of the Sacred fire. less

By the early 1970's, the port was derelict and unused. The council of the day decided that its paddlesteamer heritage was unique and started restoration of the port. Today the paddlesteamers are making a comeback. Many old sunken boats are being repaired to their former glory. Kevin Hutchinson is a Shipwright who has played a large role in the paddlesteamer revival. Echuca is a great example of how rural towns can use their heritage to establish tourism. less

Melburnians appreciate the finest in life: food, coffee, music…oh and football. If you are in Melbourne during footy season, you won't be able to escape it, it's followed with religious fervour. 'Four Seasons in one day' - After a beautiful day on Friday, Melbourne turned out a shocking wet day today. I wanted to capture the multicultural element of Melbourne, so I spent some time filming the Victorian Markets. Melbourne represents to me fine food and a great live music scene. So on Friday night l went to a bush tucker restaurant and feasted on crocodile, and then watched Wendy Rule perform. A well known musician Wendy tells us what she likes about Melbourne. less
