History/Background
  • At world-famous Bondi Beach relax on soft white sand and enjoy an invigorating swim between the red and yellow flags. The sweeping white-sand crescent of Bondi is one of Australia’s most iconic beaches. Reliable waves draw surfers while, nearby, hardy locals swim in the Icebergs ocean pool year-round. Trendy, health-conscious Sydneysiders head to laid-back cafes around Hall Street, while hip backpackers frequent the area’s casual pubs. Walkers and joggers use the clifftop Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, with its dramatic scenery.

  • History/Background:

    There's more to it though than just the picture-perfect place you see displayed on the postcards, it also tells the story of the gay-hate crimes involving men being forced to their deaths from cliffs near Bondi. In the 1980s and 1990s a wave of murders bloodied the idyllic coastline of Sydney’s eastern suburbs. There were 80 murders, 30 unsolved cases and thousands of assaults. The victims: young homosexual men. However, the murders were only exposed after a 2005 police investigation, Operation Taradale. which ruled out suicide as a cause of death.

    The Deep Water drama and documentary is a Blackfella Films production for SBS, with major production investment from Screen Australia, with Screen NSW as a partner for the drama. This is the first time Screen Australia has funded a drama and documentary on the same subject matter airing at the same time.
