This is the story of the men and women who built Australia. The courageous entrepreneurs who crossed vast oceans to tame this far distant land, who ventured into the unexplored wilderness armed with only their hopes and dreams. Through this story you will explore the myth and reality of squatter life, the hardships, the uncertainties, the triumphs and the tragedies of the brave pioneers who took on the challenge of raising their families in this harsh, unforgiving land. It tells of those who dared to push beyond the boundaries of their past experience in search of a far better life.

Early settlers such as John Wellstead laboured tirelessly alongside their countrymen, both squires and convicts alike, often enduring extreme adversity to build an ethic, a pride, a collective spirit that would eventually forge a nation, Australia.
