Corrected entry: When Mary is walking back home from school in one of the first scenes, you can see quite clearly that she is wearing a black/brown skirt, but when she is in the desert, she is wearing a white/grey skirt throught thoes desert scenes.

Correction: Australian schools have a winter and summer uniform for girls. In spring and autumn, they are worn more or less alternately.

Factual error: The aboriginal boy gets upset about the white hunters shooting the water buffaloes which symbolises white man encroaching into aboriginal culture. But the water buffaloes are introduced pests in Australia and have no spiritual meaning to the aboriginals.
