First Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie touched down in Tamworth, then she headed to Werris Creek to scout for potential movie locations.
She was happy to smile and wave at interested locals, saying she it was "wonderful to be in Werris Creek".
The gong-winning actress arrived on a commercial flight in the country music capital on Wednesday morning before being driven straight to Werris Creek.
Jolie is in Australia to make her second feature film as a director - Unbroken.
It is understood production will soon move from Fox Studios to Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast.
But in between she stopped in to check out the architecture of a number of Werris Creek locations which are understood to be of interest as she prepares to film a World War II epic.
Jolie and her entourage left Werris Creek about 12.30pm but not before strolling down the main street, much to the bewilderment of starstruck locals.
She stopped in on Mark Woolfe and the crew at Creek Meats and spent time checking out an alley nearby which is believed to be of major interest to the filmmaker.
She briefly checked out a home in Punyarra St, charming all and sundry when she stopped to hug the kids and pose for photos.
