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.

Fantastic Aussie Drama!
3 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I grew up in North America and have been living in Sydney, Australia for 8 years.

Far too much Australian TV is imported from the U.S., but this series is a prime example of why Australia should make (and export for that matter) its own shows.

This is the finest Aussie Drama to come out of Australia since the TV mini teledrama Fire! which was around perhaps 6 or 7 years ago when I was first in the country.

The story lines are not ridiculous as they can sometimes be in US dramas, and the characters are profiled in-depth...you feel as though they are real people....and real Aussie country people at that.

In my opinion, this series should be marketed to the US to show REAL Aussie country life instead of that stupid fake crocodile hunter stuff!

Bravo for the makers of McLeod's Daughters. I give it a 10 and recommend it as prime viewing to everyone! I only hope they start making more as good as this, here in Oz!
