Hugh faces his biggest decision ever — can he leave Whyhope and Penny for a new life in the city? Meanwhile, love comes to the Knight family when Meryl, Matt and Ajax all find new reasons to fall in love again.

Love comes to Whyhope: Meryl and Michael find a way through their past, Hayley and Ajax start afresh under the stars, Charlie and Matt get hitched again, and Hugh leaves with Sharna to start a new life in Sydney. But there’s just one thing that Sydney doesn’t have: Penny.
