After going bankrupt, the King family arrive from England to live with their Australian relatives. The King's think they have inherited a large cattle ranch, but discovery it is a run down Australian wildlife "Wallaby Park".
In England a recently bereaved widow and her two children discover that they've inherited a property in Australia. With some reluctance they head to Australia to claim their inheritance only to discover that the profitable sheep station they've imagined is in fact a rather out of the way wildlife park full of Australian native animals. What's more it has human occupants as well - a distantly related trio of grandchildren who have been bequeathed lifelong rights to live on the property. As well, there's an Australian born Vietnamese animal handler who's somehow the only one who has real expertise in dealing with native Australian animals.
What a great actress, she fills the role of the manipulative Gemma King perfectly and delivers her lines effortlessly with perfect comic timing. The show is excellent and consistantly funny compare to other poor childrens shows all the cast are superb in their roles and it's the one show I bother to wake up for on a Sunday moring!
