Factual error: At the beginning of the movie the town Mayor meets the Army Major in the street. The Major is wearing the Royal Australian (RAR) Infantry badge on the front of his slouch hat. This would have been incorrect for 1969 as the badge didn't move to the front until the early 90's. The badge should be on the raised side of the slouch hat.
Factual error: The radio telescope at Parkes was not the one used for receiving transmissions from Apollo 11. In fact the one used was a smaller receiver at Honeysuckle Creek. One which has since been transferred to the deep space tracking station at Tidbinbilla in the Australian Capital Territory where it still plays a minor role.
