Orphan children find a new home In Tasmania
14 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a quaint offering from 1962 and is based on what was a somewhat radical story at the time it was written when children were seen and not heard.

Three British orphans travel to Tasmania to be cared for by their aunt who lives on a farm. They make friends with the boy in the care of the couple employed as farm help. Whilst exploring the bush they find a cave and use it as a base as they battle the baddies.

The harmonica background music was a feature of films of the era and quite frankly it becomes thoroughly annoying after about ten minutes. Some of the acting is a bit forced, but it is a little like the Famous Five travel to Australia.

Today's kid's may find it a bit passé, but my children enjoyed it years ago and now in their 30's still find it fun.
