port macquarie lighthouse


Project Type: Event

Client: NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service

Location: Sea Acres National Park, Port Macquarie

This project involved the search for former cast, crew and extras of the ABC television series 'Castaway' which was filmed on location in Port Macquarie in 1973.

The result of the search was a collaboration with others to stage a one day event in Port Macquarie held in September 2017 which included a morning walk over the location where the series was filmed, an afternoon public Q&A with cast, crew and extras and an evening public screening of selected episodes from the series.

Another outcome will be a DVD of the event, the working title being 'Return of the Castaways', for archival purposes.
