Fav TV Mini series of all times.
23 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The first time i watched this series I was really young and it was on ABC around lunch time and I would sit down and watch it with my grandma! I now am a steamer enthusiast and have watched the series again at school (now a few years ago too) For the past few years I've been trying to get hold of a copy because its been my fav TV mini series of all time.

The series studies a young man growing up in the Australian Outback along the Murray river, his family life isn't good and he escapes to the river where he gets a job on the lazy jane, a paddle steamer (played by the Akuna Amphibious). The rivalry of the river trade era, a forgotten period of time in Australian history puts the lazy Janes against the lady mabel (PS Industry)

I'd give it five stars!
