Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!
A double dose of Aussie action cult classics
This is so awesome … a double dose of Mad Max Aussie action cult classics will be coming to the 'big screen' at Eumundi Drive-In on the 1 August. I love that small business on the Sunshine Coast are coming up with a constant stream of creative ways for entertaining the crowds, but still managing to maintain (to a degree) the need for social distancing. And, what better way to create your own socially distanced bubble and be entertained all at the same time, than with the old-school type drive-ins, where guests remain in their cars to enjoy movies on the big screen.

World War III has just ended and the world's remaining inhabitants are on a desperate and devastating struggle to survive. Mad Max (Mel Gibson) has become an alienated nomad, wandering an Australian outback that has fallen into tribal warfare conducted from scattered armed camps. Max joins forces with nuclear holocaust survivors to defend an oil refinery under siege from a ferocious, marauding horde that plunders the land for gasoline. Heart-pounding chase scenes, savage and kinetic, Mad Max 2 is a must-see for action buffs.
Filming of Max Max 2 took place in locations around Broken Hill in the outback of New South Wales. Mad Max 2 was a huge box office success.
🍿 Mad Max : Fury Road | Rated MA15 Starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron
Director George Miller brings the dystopian classic of Australian New Wave cinema back, with Tom Hardy as Max, and co-stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The explosive Mad Max : Fury Road is a six-time Oscar-winning film, set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is fighting over the necessities of life. There are two rebels who can restore order: there's Max (Tom Hardy), and Furiosa (Charlize Theron) - a woman who believes her path to survival is across the desert, back to her homeland.
Considered one of the best movies of the 21st century
