Filming of ‘Last Cab to Darwin’ has finished in the city after a successful two weeks.

The film, which stars Michael Caton, was shot in various locations including the city centre and Railwaytown.

One of the producers, Greg Duffy, said it was “fantastic” filming in Broken Hill.

“Everyone was fantastic. The locals helped out with locations, accommodation and food,” he said.

“It was a brilliant experience and we captured all the locations we wanted.”

The crew is now on the road filming as they head up to Darwin.

“For the two weeks we were in Broken Hill we were able to get the first third of the film and the last bit done,” Mr Duffy said.

“We are on schedule and on time. We also managed to use a number of locals as extras.”

“It’s all been fantastic,” he said. “There was a lot of community involvement.”

Mr Duffy also thanked traffic control and as well as the people who let their houses be used for filming.

“I would also like to thank all of Broken Hill,” he said. “Hopefully, we will be back to screen the film.”

More scenes will be shot in the South Australian towns of Marree, William Creek, Oodnadatta and Marla, and then Alice Springs, Barrow Creek, Tennant Creek, Daly Waters and Katherine in the Northern Territory.  

The seven-week shoot will finish in Darwin in late June.

The film is scheduled for release next year.
