Nindigully Film and Music Festival

Next event : TBC

Here’s some great memories from the 2019 event.

You all remember the iconic Aussie film Paperback Hero. Did you know a few scenes were filmed right here at Nindigully Pub? Including the scene where Hugh Jackman’s character, Jack, dances on the bar top!

In 2019, the 20 year anniversay of the film, the pub and all our friends started a campaine to “Bring Back Jack” for the festivities.

Hugh was unfortunately busy with a tour and was so dissapointed he couldn’t come back and visit us but he was kind enough to send us a message!
The complete message was played at the Movie Screening at the Festival but here is a snippet for those who couldn’t make it.
