Interesting info guys, it's much appreciated! I'll keep a lookout for any scenes featured in Bacolet Bay.
I've seen the Samaan tree that was used for the treehouse and it's a shame the site wasn't preserved.
It is indeed quite a shame that nothing has been done on the island to commemorate the film since the treehouse's destruction. I've seen pictures of the Samaan tree and its surrounding areas... it didn't look too worse for wear, but I haven't traveled to Tobago yet personally. I hope it's still being kept up somewhat. Apparently the mechanic whose property the tree lies on has been fairly welcoming in terms of pointing the tree out to tourists and such... I'd personally be interested in a discussion with him regarding the future of the tree & land. I admitted my doubt in my earlier post, but I actually do still have hope that the site will be preserved one day! The interest is there, and I don't think it would overbear the island as opposed to increasing tourism just a smidge.
Anyways, the two first photo's could well be Craighall Falls but since the public isn't allowed to swim there I've never stopped to look at them close up.
Let me clarify, the waterfalls seen in the vine-swining scenes were the Craig Hall Waterfalls. The waterfalls featured in the above pictures were rumored to be the Green HILL waterfalls, not sure if you caught that. Anyone else in the know about what two waterfalls these are featured in pictures #1, 2, & 9?
It also a crying shame that you're not allowed to swim at the Craig Hall Waterfalls, although I did read John Mills almost cut his foot while dropping from his vine into the pool. I also read somewhere else that you'll actually often see swimmers in the pool just above the falls, but I guess that's not true?
As for the mountain, I actually found the location by looking at the coastline on Google Earth. Your input has reassured me though!
Someone also uploaded a pretty comparable shot taken back in 2010! Compared to the location in the film, probably one mountainside over, right before Castara and overlooking Celery Bay & King Peters Bay. Devestatingly beautiful.
As for the river, in terms of the film, geographically speaking, it's supposed to be near Mount Irvine... but you know how filmmaking goes. It's possibly the Goldsborough River, although I can't find many pictures of it.
I was doing a little research on the Richmond River (near where the Robinson beach was filmed?) aka "The Great Dog River" The site mentioned: Park in the stand of cocoa trees and continue on foot to the river, carrying with you your food and drink. You can easily walk up the river here for some distance, shaded comfortably by the bamboo and with cool feet thanks to sloshing your way upstream!
Sounds similair... unless there are a couple of those around.
Any idea about the twiggy, sandy, grey rock area? This is apparently the base of the cliff/mountain that the oldest son stands on as seen above.
You guys might also appreciate this. It compares and the contrasts some of the already known locations, including the Robinsons and pirates beach & the Craig Hall Waterfalls.
