Age of Consent

Age of Consent is a sweet, little romantic comedy starring James Mason and Helen Mirren filmed on Dunk Island, the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia and released in 1969. Five years later in 1974, my future wife and I spent three weeks touring that part of Australia. We did not reach Dunk Island, but we did visit a resort 250 miles to the southeast on Dent Island. The scenery there was very similar to that shown in this film. Dent Island had a resort that consisted of mobile homes situated on the beach, with a pool just steps away. My future wife and I had the resort to ourselves as air service was out of service, forcing guests to arrive by boat. It was a few days of paradise. We both love Australia and especially that part of Australia.
