Cardwell Shire in north Queensland is expected to return to normal by the end of the week as the Nim's Island movie crew finish filming on Hinchinbrook Island.

More than 100 locals have been directly involved in the three-week shoot, and according to organisers they have been enjoying the sumptuous location lunches.

Hollywood stars Jodie Foster, Gerard Butler and Abigail Breslin have also spent time on the island.

Location manager Gareth Price says apart from one day of rain interruptions, the shoot has gone extremely well.

"Oh, the shoot's gone very well, the rushes look fantastic, I mean you can't fault the look of the island, with the weather last week [it] was absolutely spectacular so, no, it's looking brilliant," he said.
