This is a wonderful Christmas movie for the whole family. The kids in this are great actors. Very action packed which was a surprise for me.

For an early black and white movie, it was quite good. It had a spellbounding story line and the acting superb.

Classic Australiania
Sasi | Wonthaggi, Australia | 12/19/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film is a light-hearted film that kids and adults will enjoy. I had a laugh at the way Australians were portrayed - It was so exaggerated. It made it funny in a nice way- I reckon if they re-released the film, it would almost get cult status. Mum in the kitchen cooking and all perfectly made up in the middle of the Bush. The stereotypical portrayal of Aboriginals (which are referred to as blackefellas believe it or not) as good stockman and trackers. (which they were but there is alot more to ABoriginals than that - ie their culture, spirituality). The Aussie kids all blond and freckled with names like Snow (How original!)
Australia had come such as long way, and we like to laugh at ourselves! This film is a bewdy mate!"
Summer Christmas

"Yes Christmas in Summer down under, and in a long gone era. I first viewed this film when I was about eight or so, with my Grandpa stating how he actually filmed this movie. It is a long gone era in Australian history with everyone having a slight British accent, but northern hemi-sphere viewers do get to see Christmas in the summer instead of winter. As for some of the references to kids didn't even pick them up (6 & 7 ages), funny to think how half these lines would now have this movie poorly judged, but as I said my kids didn't even pick them up and laughed with the jokes. And my kids are black! This movie also featured the late Chips Rafferty who was one of Australia's most premiered stars, and always portrayed that so called "Australian look and sound"."

"I saw this film as a 13 year old in Holland, after migrating to Australia saw it several times and enjoyed it, am now 66 years old and still enjoy it"
