Storyline

After the death of his wife and son during childbirth, Claire's father, Jack McLeod, married city girl Ruth Silverman. Tess was the product of this tempestuous but short-lived relationship. 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. The tentative -- and presumably temporary -- partnership is the first step in the reunited sisters' effort to heal old wounds, improve their relationship, and... Written by warrior rabbit

Filmed in the best state - South Australia!
13 January 2002 | by MsMovieSee all my reviews

McLeod's Daughters is the story of a group of sister's running a cattle station, supposedly 400 km's from the neareast large city in South Australia, Adelaide.

It is a typical Australian drama - not big on spending, but real quality when it comes to storylines. These people could be anybody that you know, so you can identify with them and understand exactly where they are coming from.

The filming location is actually on a property owned by the TV station (Channel Nine), called Kingsford, and is only just outside of Gawler in South Australia - so that makes it a real home away from home for the cast and crew, as they are only just outside the beautiful city of Adelaide. (Dubbed the City of Churches, Adelaide has a whole lot more to do than just visit churches - well worth a visit, see it on the Jacob's Creek Tour Down Under bicycle race every January!)

The series is returning to Australian screens in February 2002, and will no doubt continue filming for at least another season or two, but anyway, if you like this Aussie show, look out for Blue Heelers (a country cop show) probably airing on daytime TV or Showtime real soon.
