Travel Advisory for South Australian Outback
I haven't seen the film but as a South Australian born & bred, I have to tell you that the SA /NT outback is a very dangerous place. I spent a lot of time their pioneering and later working on railway gangs (half of whom were jail escapees and the like. The area is full of very hard tough men. Woomera is full of US, British and Australian servicemen (this is where intercontinental ballistic misiles and a lot of other classified military equipment is developed). Miners and cattlemen are generally the toughest boys. They don't like “suits”. The best way to get beat to a pulp is to rock up in the Oodnadatta pub wearing a suit and a posh Adelaide accent. There they judge a man by his character not by his money.
A small example: When I was there, the local police were deemed too slow at investigating a feud between opal miners and a passing biker gang (commancheros?) . Two car loads of Police were sent from “down south” and while they were enjoying the hospitality of the pub there was an almighty explosion outside which blew their posh shiny new commodores from here to kingdom come.
Never mess with S.A. miners people .. they might decide to use the gelignite solution. And they're the sane ones, it's the lunatics who'll think nothing of bullying you up to 100mph then wipe you off the road you've gotta watch. A lot of Australians travel through there blissfully unaware and the tourist information service has no interest in informing them.
Adelaide isn't imune either. It rightly prides itself on being the most civilised and sophisticated city in Australia.
It was the second place in the world to give women the vote and pioneered many other social reforms. No convicts ever set foot there either, yet it has a dark underbelly of bizarre / multiple murder.
Trust me wolf creek is real. People disappear out there all the time.
take care, sleep tight lol, unclebruce
