Water Rats

Show Tidbits
Catherine McClements had previously worked with Colin Friels in the movie Weekend With Kate (1990), Scott Burgess in the telemovie Just Us (1986), and Water Rats creator/writer Tony Morphett, who was the co-writer of the telemovie My Brother Tom (1986).
The exterior shots of Frank's house were filmed in The Rocks (an inner city suburb of Sydney), while the interior shots were filmed on a set on Goat Island.
Early on in the series, professional boat drivers were used to drive the Nemesis, however later on, both Jay Laga'aia (Tommy) and Brett Partridge (Gavin) got their boat licences so they were able to be at the wheel instead.
Southern Star, the production company of Water Rats, paid the New South Wales government $1 million to use Goat Island as its production base for three years (1996-1999).
