Filming on the drama flick "Australia" has just begun. The film's cast, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, were in Camden for interior and exterior scenes on Wednesday and Thursday Dec 20th and 21st.
Per The Sydney Morning Herald, the shooting takes place in Camelot, a grand house at Camden on Sydney's outskirts.
Of Baz Luhrmann's direction, "Australia" is set in northern Australia prior to World War II and centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver (Jackman) to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.
