Corrected entry: During the attack on Darwin, Army signs display "19th Infantry Battalion". The 19th is a World War 1 unit. In the Second World War, the Second Australian Imperial Force was raised and the 2nd 19th Infantry Battalion AIF was formed. The correct citation is 2/19 Infantry Battalion. Also, the bombing of Darwin occurred on February 19, 1942. The 2/19 Inf Bn AIF was captured in Singapore on 15 February 1942.
Corrected entry: Despite all the talk of not using the names of the dead, Nullah refers to Flyn by name after he's been killed by the stampeding horses.
Corrected entry: At the scene where Fletcher & Co light fires to scare the cattle, it's night. When the cattle start stampeding it's suddenly broad daylight.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nulla is hiding in the water tank with the police down below looking for him, the windmill is turning quite fast, however cut away shots of the trees, vegetation and the long hair of one of the trackers shows no sign of any wind whatsoever.
Corrected entry: The mission island shown in the movie is fictional. Father John McGrath, a Catholic priest conducting missionary work on Bathurst Island, was not the first to spot the Japanese planes. That honour goes to a coastwatcher on Melville Island. McGrath later sent the message, "An unusually large air formation bearing down on us from the northwest." The mission was not attacked by air, nor did any Japanese army forces land on Bathurst Island.
Corrected entry: The scene where the Japanese aircraft are seen flying over water approaching the Darwin foreshore is incorrect. That would mean the aircraft would be approaching from the south. The aircraft attacked from the north.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Nicole and Hugh are at the Ball, she starts out with 3 white flowers in her hair. Later on there are a lot more. Her lipstick changes throughout this sequence as well. It goes from being vibrant red, then fades and become vibrant again.
