My Place is the story of one spot in Australia told by the children who lived there over 130 years, starting in 2008 and going back to 1888. Thirteen children, all with a talent for some kind of trouble. Each living in the very same spot, each hiding up the very same fig tree, each with an adventure to tell.
Continuing on from where My Place Series 1 left off, Series 2 takes us on journey even further back in time.
Based on the Nadia Wheatley & Donna Rawlins picture book, My Place is the story of one spot in Australia told by the children who lived there. In Series 2 we start in 1878 and continue back in time to an Australian landscape before European settlement.
Each episode is set in the same place, with all the kids, regardless of the era in which they live, having a habit of getting into some sort of trouble!
