Crocodile Dundee (1986)

 Inspired by Rodney Ansell who became famous in 1977 after he was stranded in the Northern Territory, Crocodile Dundee is a must see Australian movie. The movie follows an uptight New York journalist who falls in love with rough living bushman Mick Dundee, while she is on an assignment in the Australian outback. You may have heard of the iconic quote, ‘That’s not a knife…THAT’S a knife.’

Mad Max (1979)

A dystopian action blockbuster, Mad Max introduces us to Max Rockatansky who is a police officer in a future Australia. The country is experiencing societal destruction as a result of war and a necessary supply shortage. Max’s wife and child are murdered by a vicious bike gang, and the lone warrior soon finds himself seeking revenge and helping himself and others in civilization.

The film replicates a true story of three children who attempt to escape authorities on a 2,400km journey back to their home. You’ll definitely need some tissues for this one!
