The production will likely have created some much-needed jobs for Aussie tradies who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Despite the scope of the production in White Bay, it’s nothing compared to Byron Bay.

The various properties, which were not rented through Ray White, will potentially be used as sets or as accommodation for cast and crew who do not already live in the area.

Nicole has been living in Byron Bay on-and-off with her husband Keith Urban and their two daughters since filming for the show began earlier this year.

The famous family splashed out on luxury lodgings throughout their stay, renting out a Spanish-style ‚eco-mansion‘ called ‚The Range‘ in Coopers Shoot.

The stunning property, which is environmentally sustainable, ’sits on 120 acres in the hinterland of Byron Bay‘ and is believed to cost $20,000 a week.

Nine Perfect Strangers is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel of the same name.

The miniseries also stars Melissa McCarthy, Samara Weaving, Luke Evans, and Bobby Cannavale.  

In July, Nicole told The Daily Telegraph, she’s ‚thrilled‘ to be able to bring the $100 million production and hundreds of jobs to the local film industry, after it was sent crashing down by the coronavirus pandemic.

FFA, Nike find a fix for Matildas away kit own goal

SYDNEY, Sept 23 (Reuters) – Australia’s soccer bosses and kit manufacturer Nike on Wednesday promised fans that replicas of the national team’s away shirt would now be available in women’s sizes next year after a storm of outrage from fans.

The new unified Socceroos and Matildas kit was launched with great fanfare last week and while the gold home shirt was available in all sizes, the green away kit was not for sale in what Nike describes as „women’s silhouettes“.

Football Federation Australia had already promised to rectify the anomaly when the next kit was launched but on Wednesday issued a statement saying female fans would soon be able to buy the away shirt.

„FFA, together with Nike, have listened to fans and consumers and as a result the away kit will be available for purchase early in the new year,“ it said.

„The initial unavailability of 2020 national teams away kits in a women’s silhouette was not consistent with the values in which FFA seeks to uphold and promote.

FFA acknowledges this and will place added emphasis on ensuring that future processes are aligned with the organisation’s broader vision and mission for the sport.“

Nike also released a short statement confirming the news, saying it was „committed to women’s football and serving our female athletes and consumers …“.

Matildas swiss made replica shirts can be expected to be big sellers in the run-up to Australia and New Zealand co-hosting the next Women’s World Cup in 2023.
