The Winds of Jarrah is a 1983 Australian film adapted from a Mills & Boon novel. It was never released to cinemas.[2]

The film was financed in part by the Australian Film Commission and the Film Corporation of Western Australia.

Screenwriter Bob Ellis later called it a "shocking film.. which, would you believe, started out as a very good script and only about one sentence of it survived."[3]
