Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome: Sydney Harbour Bridge

A crew member pushes a crane next to a model set of post-apocalyptic Sydney in some sand dunes. The buildings are about the size of the person. An arch of the destroyed Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House is visible.

Dust and sand are fanned across the miniature set of a ruined Sydney while a camera does a fly-through to film the closing sequences for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.

These miniatures were created by model coordinator Dennis Nicholson and his crew.

This production still captures the extraodinary skill of the set designer. Unfortunately at the end of filming the models were too big to be put into storage and were all destroyed.
