Starring Oliver Tobias, James Condon, Helen Morse and Elizabeth Crosby, and produced by Tony Essex (Follyfoot), Luke's Kingdom is an epic adventure series set in Australia during the early nineteenth century. Filmed entirely on location, it is a tale of pioneering and achievement against bitter odds, in which a family struggles to carve out an existence in a land more dangerous and more brutal than the West at its wildest. Amongst its directors are fan-favourite Peter Hammond (The Avengers) and the award-winning Peter Weir (Picnic at Hanging Rock).
1829: Jason Firbeck, a retired naval lieutenant recently widowed, takes sons Samuel and Luke and daughter Jassy to New South Wales to claim land bequeathed to them by a wealthy friend. A strange new world greets the Yorkshire family. Amid redcoated soldiery, yellow-jacketed convicts and a tanned peasantry governed by a wealthy elite, the Firbecks equip themselves with arms and supplies, and set off across the sweltering plains; the hardships and hazards they face confirm Luke's resolve to become the leader of his family of pioneers.
