Walkabout is a 1971 British-Australian survival film in which two city-bred children are stranded in the Australian Outback and must contend with harsh wilderness alone. They learn to survive with the aid of an Aboriginal boy on his “walkabout,” a ritual separation from his tribe.
The film was one of the first in the Australian New Wave cinema movement and was in competition for the Grand Prix du Festival at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival.
