The Czech title 'Zapadakov' ('Outstation') appears below an image of a rock outcrop against a yellow and brown background.

Overlaying the centre of the image is an Australian postage stamp featuring two kangaroos and postmarked Australia and dated 6 August 1975.

This is an unusual poster design that focuses more on the emptiness of the Australian outback than the conflict between the main characters.

The starkness and foreboding of the landscape is well rendered but ultimately says little about the film itself. The inclusion of the postage stamp tells the local audience they will be watching a film from a far-flung location.
