Australia is a film about how the aboriginals had it after the British people came to Australia. All this happens in the northern part of Australia, probably in the Northern Territory. In 1939 Lady Sarah Ashley came to Australia to visit her husband, Maitland Ashley. His drover came to pick her up, and drive her to their farm, Faraway Downs Farm. When she came to the farm they find out that Maitland was murdered. And everybody blames it on Nullah’s grandfather. Nullah’s is a boy that lives in Faraway Downs and Sarah and Nullah becomes friends. Every time someone comes to Faraway Downs, Nullah and her mother hide in the water tower.
Nullah tells her that Fletcher where steeling her cows, and that he killed Maitland because he found it out. Sarah fires Fletcher because he is treated the aboriginal people on the farm very bad. Most of the staff on the farm are very good friends to Fletcher, so when he leaves the rest of the staff leaves with him, everyone without one. But Sarah promises that if the Drover helps her, she would give him a horse that was Maitland’s. Drover agrees to help her, so the rest of the loyal staff, which worked inside, helped her to get the 1500 cows to the army, so the could get much food. There are 8 people that were going to take the cows to the boat. Fletcher doesn’t like this, so he tries many times to desolate for Sarah. He tries to scare the cow out of a steep. Then Nullah and King George sings an aboriginal song and stops the cows. But the cow ran over Flynn, and killed him, and nearly hurt Nullah. The last thing Flynn tells Driver was that Fletcher killed Maitland, Sarah’s husband.
They manage to get the cows to the boat before Fletcher manages to do that. And they went to the bar to get a drink, but it wasn’t allowed for ladies to be there. Then everybody tells the bartender that she wasn’t a lady, because she had managed to get the cows to the boat, and then she gets a drink.
