The Catholic Weekly wrote that:

The film has some faults. Its beautiful photography is marred several times by glare, and also by the motion of the camera. Sensitive ears will not take kindly to a bad grammatical error the commentator makes at one stage. And perhaps some will grow tired of looking at the same girls parading in front of the camera. But for all that it is a beautiful piece of work. One feels there are many other places in our country waiting for the cameraman to do justice to them.[2]
