The Little River Bed and Breakfast become a part of local film history when a relatively unknown actor made a road movie that would make him a film icon. That film was Mad Max, directed by George Miller. It became a critical success. To celebrate all things Mad Max we take part in the Back 2 the Max reunion which was very well received.
Little River and areas surrounding have been featured in other productions for both the big screen and the small. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks made the HBO mini series,The Pacific. Nicolas Cage’s Ghost Rider and Geoffrey Rush’s The Eye of the Storm were both filmed at nearby Anakie.
The name Little River became famous during the 70’s due to a band of musicians that just happened to be driving through. They saw the road sign and named their band after the town. The Little River Band were a huge success in the music charts and made our little town a household name.
In 2007 this site was featured as a set for the Make Poverty History Campaign to show support for a charity we all believe in.
The community is important to us so we actively host and take part in local events.
