Growing up, the two girls had been very close but were separated when Ruth took 5-year-old Tess back to the city. Twenty years later, after Jack's sudden death, his daughters each inherit half of heavily mortgaged Drover's Run. Tess, who recently lost her mother to breast cancer, returns to Drover's in the hopes of cashing out and opening a cafe in the city, but is disappointed to be met with a less-than-rosy financial picture and the open resentment of her older sister. After Claire fires the male workforce, the sisters, with the help of housekeeper Meg Fountain, her daughter Jodi, and local girl Becky, decide to run the property themselves.

Superb TV show
8 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"McLeod's Daughters" just keeps getting better and better. The plot intensifies and the characters are developed more. As the audience you are able to feel a connection with these women who work hard. This show is unlike many others, it is set in the Australian outback and follows the lives of Aussie women who live and work on a farm (Drover's Run) who do the work themselves. "Mcleod's Daughter's" also shows the lives of the farmers which surround Tess and Claire, Alex and Nik. One of the main qualities this show has is that is it unique. It is unlike many other shows which are based around criminal activities and the legal system e.g. CSI, NCIS, LAO. The actors are fantastic in their roles. Bridie Carter (Tess) and Lisa Chapel (Claire) excel in the role of their characters. This fabulous acting is supported by Aaron Jeffery (Alex), Myles Pollard (Nick)and Rachael Carpani (Jodi) This is a very compelling show which inspires everyone.
