Has anyone got a Favorite score from Australia?

Mine is Summerfield by Bruce Smeaton. Small scale score but so beautiful.

MAD MAX: THE ROAD WARRIOR (Brian May)
CAREFUL, HE MIGHT HEAR YOU (Ray Cook)
CROCODILE DUNDEE (Pete Best)
DEAD CALM (Graeme Revell)
THE PIANO (Michael Nyman)
BABE (Nigel Westlake)
SHINE (David Hirschfelder)
ROMEO + JULIET (Craig Armstrong)

Just some off the top of my head.

THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER (Bruce Smeaton)


Do you mean Bruce Rowland? Haven’t checked if there was another production - I think there might have been a later mini-series. Anyway, Bruce Rowland’s Man From
Snowy River and Phar Lap scores are two of my favorites.

On the Beach by Christopher Gordon -- no contest.

In fact it's one of my top 10 scores of all time...hell, maybe top 5.
