Cattle Mustering – Megalong Valley Blue Mountains, New South Wales

In the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Brandon and Kayne start this episode climbing some of the most spectacular cliffs in the country! A complete head-rush way to arrive, just in time to face a hoof-thumping mission: Brandon challenges Kayne to muster 40 head of cattle in the Megalong Valley – but, to do so, he’ll have to undergo four days of training as a Jackaroo. It’s not easy work, with the boys learning to shear sheep, test cows for pregnancy and more.

The Nightmare Before Graduation
The countdown to Christmas and summer holidays is exciting every year, but no more so than now, when Mrs Gonsha’s class is graduating from Grade 6. Everyone is thrilled to be going to High School, even Debra-Jo, who has been having a difficult time letting go of primary school – ‘the best years of her life’. The children are feverishly immersed in their Graduation plans, but when they uncover the explosive news that Rory is unable to graduate with them, no-one is excited about leaving school any more. It’s too unthinkable to be abandoning Rory, so the children enact a plan. The Nightmare Before Graduation encapsulates the contemporary meaning and spirit of Christmas – that love, kindness and generosity can override any obstacle.
