While announcing the project in June 2022, Baz Luhrmann said, “While Australia the film has its own life, there was another telling of this story; one with different layers, nuances, and even alternative plot twists that an episodic format has allowed us to explore.”
The retelling of a classic tale will star Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman in the primary roles. They will reprise their characters as an English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley and Drover. However, it is still not confirmed if the original cast members will be returning to the miniseries.

‘Faraway Downs’ Plot
According to the reports, the series will follow the same plotline as its source material ‘Australia’. The plot revolves around Lady Sarah Ashley who inherits a large cattle ranch the Farawat Downs after her husband’s death. As a cattle baron, King Carney plots to take away her inheritance, she teams up with a cattle drover to protect the ranch. The story takes a surprising turn as it is explored through the eyes of a bi-racial Indigenous Australian child, Nullah, who gets caught up in the government’s draconian racial policy.
While the film had a runtime of 165 minutes, as ‘Faraway Downs’ is a six-episode miniseries, it might be considerably longer than its source material.
