A contemporary children's comedy-adventure set in a small Aussie town against the background of the mighty Murray River. The series follows a group of kids who attempt to resurrect a derelict paddle steamer and get it back on the River as a successful working vessel. At the heart of these comic adventures is Charles 'Chuck' Finn — he's a hip, wisecracking Canadian boy whose only wish is to move back to Toronto. With his introduction to the de-commissioned Tingalla Rose and a gang of misfits who become his mates, Chuck eventually finds the new home and companions he longs for beneath his cocky and often abrasive front. Each episode follows the gang who always seem caught up in an unexpected adventure, whether it's hiding a planted plague of rodents from the River Inspector, getting lost in the ether between the 'living world' and the 'other side' or foiling the plans of a sworn enemy, town bully Tiny Maloney.
