Set in South Heads, Australia, the story begins with a fatal car accident. Craig, who still lies in coma, is the only survivor. Secrets and intrigues are revealed as we discover the lives and personalities of the inhabitants of Headland.
Set in the town of South Heads on the Southern Eastern coastline of Australia, the Headlands Hotel and South Coast University are the centre of the show as we enter the world of South Heads along with newly appointed student counsellor, Adam Wilde. Through him and fellow counsellor Grace we venture with them into the minds of the students as they deal with the pressures of study, the frustrations of everyday life, and the heartbreak of shattered loves.Written by

Oh, I dumped a bucket of beer slops over Sasha Forbes's head.
I'm sorry I missed it. Was she wearing anything expensive?
Oh, I can't remember.

This programme sounds the death knell for Australian television
"Headland" is a badly scripted, badly acted and badly directed piece of fluff that involves a group of not-even-that-attractive non-actors struggling to deliver substandard lines while the camera rolls and pitches all around the frame.
I saw the second episode the other night. The only reason I stayed watching it until the end was because I was depressed and hadn't had a good laugh in a while. The show had the potential to put me in two moods - furiously angry at the fact that lazy management at Seven has led to this being commissioned, and choking on my own laughter as the next revelation is delivered with the subtlety of an ice-pick to the head.
At least "Home and Away" has the decency to be only half an hour long.
