Charles "Chuck" Finn is a 13 year old Canadian boy who had just moved to the fictional town of Tingalla, South Australia situated next to the Murray River. At first, Chuck struggles to cope with having a new life and desires going back to his hometown in Toronto, but he then comes across a run down paddle streamer known as The Tingalla Rose.

These events lead to Chuck accepting Tingalla as his new home.

cute show, enjoyable and fun
Chuck Finn is a cute show that deals with a bunch of young adolescents and their fight to keep their boat, and stay out of trouble which often arises due to two ghosts which spend their time playing cards.
The cast is great, the ideas stick, the character analysis is gorgeous. Luke O'loughlin is very good as the charismatic Chuck Finn, who battles endlessly to beat the hard hitting Sarah McDonald (played flawlessly by Cassandra Kane). The ghosts are funny, wacky and enjoyable. The other three kids are fabulous too, which makes the whole show one enjoyable adventure. Possibly one of the best shows to come out of Australia, Chuck Finn is a great show, which I would gladly recommend to anyone, of any age.
