Storyline

Follow the highs and lows of the townsfolk of Wandin Valley. This drama TV series revolves around the daily happenings of a 'small town' rural Australian hospital, its doctors, nurses, patients, and pretty much everyone else in the locale. A heart-warming Australian drama series that at times will see you laughing hysterically and at other times crying rivers. Well worth watching. Written by bjhmelton

An Aussie drama to be proud of.
20 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This Australian drama series is one of the best to be produced, I enjoyed it when it aired and I still enjoy it now as I have bought all ten series that went to sale but unfortunately the last four series have not been released.

This production touched on real life situations and was very informative as they really did their homework on portraying real medical emergencies, it made you laugh and it made you cry and it was a sad day when it was axed.

Well done and a feather in your cap to the creator and executive producer James Davern, the many actors and all who had a hand in giving Australia a quality drama.
