Storyline

Hardship and respect for the land are key at Drovers Run, a vast cattle ranch in the Australian outback that once belonged to Jack McLeod. Now, with his passing, his two daughters are reunited to decide the ranch's future. While Tess initially wants to sell her share, she finds that the land beckons to her. And her sense of optimism is much needed, given that Claire has spent years struggling to keep the ranch financially afloat. These two decide to run it together, with their housekeeper and mother-figure, Meg, her teenage daughter, Jodi, and a local girl, Becky, who is escaping her own troubles in town. Their lives are hard and the obstacles many, but the rewards are every bit as grand as the wild open land they've inherited. Based on the successful 1996 telemovie of the same name.

Filmed in the best state - South Australia!
13 January 2002 | by MsMovieSee all my reviews

McLeod's Daughters is the story of a group of sister's running a cattle station, supposedly 400 km's from the neareast large city in South Australia, Adelaide.

It is a typical Australian drama - not big on spending, but real quality when it comes to storylines. These people could be anybody that you know, so you can identify with them and understand exactly where they are coming from.

The filming location is actually on a property owned by the TV station (Channel Nine), called Kingsford, and is only just outside of Gawler in South Australia - so that makes it a real home away from home for the cast and crew, as they are only just outside the beautiful city of Adelaide. (Dubbed the City of Churches, Adelaide has a whole lot more to do than just visit churches - well worth a visit, see it on the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under bicycle race every January!)

The series is returning to Australian screens in February 2002, and will no doubt continue filming for at least another season or two, but anyway, if you like this Aussie show, look out for Blue Heelers (a country cop show) probably airing on daytime TV or Showtime real soon.
