Continuity mistake: Shortly before the big cattle drive arc begins, Kipling Flynn pours a teacup full of rum for Lady Ashley to drink. The camera cuts to an over-the-shoulder view as Lady Ashley starts to tip back her teacup; at this point, you can see that the cup is completely empty.
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: 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 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.
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.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Nullah's mother is telling Mr. Fletcher lies about the cattle, you can see her leaning against the porch post in two different positions, in three quick shots - one with her arm low on the post, and the next shot with her arm higher up on the post. (00:29:15)
Continuity mistake: As Mr. Fletcher is riding up on horseback to greet Lady Ashley, you can see him riding up next to a parked, red truck, that has the front end pointed away from the house. Keep an eye on that truck, because it will have the front end pointing towards the house, as Fletcher gets closer to Lady Ashley. (00:27:50)
Continuity mistake: As Lady Ashley and Ramsden are walking in to the horse stables, while discussing the sale of Faraway Downs, you can see the background of a servant, along with a serving cart, and one closed door that would lead further in to the stables; as the two walk away from that scene, take notice that the background has changed - it now has a wheelbarrow full of hay, the door is open, and the servant and cart have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Flynn is on the ground and the cattle are stampeding towards him, you can see him raise his chest up off of the ground to look back at the stampede; immediately, the next shot, you see Flynn looking back at the stampede with his face and chest more closer to the ground.
