Meet plain but privileged multi-millionairess Stephanie Harper, whose sole mistake is to fall for handsome young sporting hero Greg Marsden. Stephanie's dreams of bliss end before her honeymoon at the hands of her new husband, her traitorous best friend Jilly and the jaws of a convenient reptile. But wait! Undead, unhappy and hideously scarred, Stephanie crawls back to settle the score with the aid of gentle plastic surgeon, Doctor Dan Marshall. He watches her re-emerge as superstar model Tara Welles — but can true love and bitter vengeance coexist in the heady world of fashion? Return to Eden is a breathless trip from the mansions of Sydney Harbour to the deadly rivers of the Australian tropics, from the swaying palms of the Great Barrier Reef to the catwalks of the glitterati and a bloody climax in the ghostly outback estate of Eden. (3 x 120min)

The series picks up from the miniseries seven years later. Stephanie Harper, Australia's richest woman, is happily married to her plastic surgeon husband. Her two children are now young adults, involved in the Harper 'empire' and in their own problems. The release of Jilly Stewart from prison starts a dramatic chain of events. (22 x 60min)
