Factual error: One can read in the newspaper "Standard" dated from Monday 11 May 1941 the headline "Germany urges Japan to enter war". The text below says that Germany urged Japan to attack the USSR as Berlin broke the non-aggression pact the previous month. But Germany attacked the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, so the newspaper article should be dated July 1941. Besides, this information was top secret and could not have appeared in a newspaper in May 1941. (01:14:15)
Continuity mistake: When Lady Ashley meets Kipling Flynn in his shed, he pulls out a new bottle of "Poor Fella Rum". When he pulls the cork out, it is a different bottle shape and almost completely empty, but then it goes back to a full bottle. (00:33:50)
Continuity mistake: When Drover and Ashley are parading in the rain at the ball, there is a shot of Drover's all white clean shirt, specifically the arms. When they dance in the mud after it starts raining, it has some mud stains on one of the arms. Cut back later and the shirt is clean again.Andrew Quattropani
Factual error: In the scene where the Japanese are attacking Darwin, the American Battleship USS Oklahoma is shown being bombed and torpedoed. The USS Oklahoma capsized after being attacked at Pearl Harbor several months earlier. This appears to actually be a piece of a scene from the 2001 movie "Pearl Harbor".stv2999
Factual error: At the beginning of the film, the map of Europe is not from September 1939, which should be showing Nazi Germany, including east territories and Austria. It's from 1993 or later, showing the democratic Federal Republic of Germany after its reunification. The modern map has just been covered by a Nazi flag. (00:04:55)
Continuity mistake: During the cattle drive Nullah starts out by riding a Skewbald (brown and white) horse but in subsequent shots the horse is Piebald (black and white). In later scenes the horse remains Piebald but the pattern of the markings changes between shots indicating that the pony was actually grey.
Continuity mistake: When Nullah and his mother are rescued from the water tank, the characters are shown swimming around inside the tank (which obviously involves getting wet!), yet when they are pulled out, Nullah's jumper is completely dry.
Drover: We're not really used to...
Lady Sarah Ashley: A woman? I suppose you think I should be back in Darwin, at the church fete or a lady's whatever you call it. Well I will have you know, I am as capable as any man.
Drover: Guests. We're not used to guests is what I was about to say, but now that you mention it I happen to quite like the women of the outback.
