"Eureka Stockade" - the film

Hunter Valley Aboriginal men on set of Eureka Stockade at Singleton. After the success of The Overlanders, one of Australia’s biggest and most expensive postwar films, Eureka Stockade, is shot on set at Blind Creek, Singleton. Director Harry Watt seeks to employ local workers and cast people in small parts and as extras during its two year production. Four unnamed Aboriginal – perhaps workers, bit actors or even sightseers – relax on set with British actor, Peter Finch and Al Thomas.
