TRIVIA: In August 2001 the first episode of the series aired on Australian TV. Creator Posie Graeme-Evans developed the show from a highly successful TV movie which aired in 1996. Drovers Run (where the show is filmed) was originally called Kingsford and was bought by the nine network in 1999. Drovers Run is a working property located between the townships of Gawler and Freeling in South Australia. Originally it was part of 30,000 acres but is now 135 acres of farming land. The house was built over 30 years and was finished in 1856. The interior filming is all filmed within the house and not on any other set.
