The Screen Guide

It's Sydney in 1969 and the Mafia have just sent Tony and Sal, a couple of Chicago hoods, to Australia to get a cut from the profits of the illegal gambling which is flourishing due to Yank soldiers on R&R from Vietnam. Barry Ryan who runs Sydney's shady end of town doesn't think much of this idea and co-opts his nephew, Darcy, his wife, Sharon, and mistress, Margaret, into helping him keep the Mafia at bay. A trip to the outback is what he has in mind.
