Emu Springs is the place to be!
13 April 2003 | by (Blue Mountains, Australia) – See all my reviews

Probably the best of its type made (small Australian country town, the life, loves and dramas of the locals and the blow-ins), 'Something in the Air' gave us something to look forward to on local television in Australia during 2000 - 2002. The town of Emu Springs survives thanks to its local radio station (to which the title pays homage) and a band of loyal locals, most of whom seem to be members of 'The Emus', the local footie (Australian Rules Football) team. You can find full details at the official web site on ABC Television which thankfully has kept the site up and running despite the demise of the series.
