Set around a fictional Ross St Surgery medical practice in inner Sydney explored both the personal and professional lives of the general practitioners working together, and the other doctors and staff who worked in the clinic.
The Arcadia Waters council chambers building is actually the old Concord Council building in Sydney, NSW. Concord Council had been amalgamated with Drummoyne and other nearby councils to form the Canada Bay Council, leaving the former Concord Council Chambers empty, and a great set for the show. The Chambers have subsequently been demolished and replaced with the Concord Library. Many of the street scenes when they sit on the footpath at outdoor dining areas are also shot in Coincord.

Devastating revelations behind the cloak of local government.
A masterpiece of television in the making, 'Grass Roots' sweeps away the mysteries of local government in a beachside suburb of Sydney, Australia. One wonders how many council employees have spilled the beans to the creators of this series! It's difficult to pick out any particular members of the cast, because they work so well together. No one is really a standout, which is probably how it should be. But mention must be made of the superlative production values, especially the camera work. A 5-star series right up there with 'Seachange' and 'The Games'.
