Australia Set Floods


The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a set for Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia has flooded causing the production to change around the schedule for the Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman-starrer:

It was meant to be the dusty, outback homestead playing host to Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman – but the romantic set of Faraway Downs, the homestead at the heart of Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, has been flooded in a remote region of Western Australia.

Because of the flooding Luhrmann has pulled the pin on filming at the homestead, in Kununurra, in the Kimberley Region, within the next fortnight as planned.

Instead, the stars of the film, Kidman and Jackman, will travel from Darwin back to Sydney to shoot interior scenes while waiting for the expensive set to dry out.
