Keeping up with the Joneses

Keeping Up With The Joneses is a reality series that explores the unusual lifestyle of a family living on a large cattle station in a remote part of Outback Australia. The series features the Jones Family: Milton Jones Senior, his wife Cristina, and children Beau, Alex and "Little Milton". They live on Coolibah Station, a sprawling property about 500 kilometres south of Darwin. They make their living through a combination of farming cattle for export and providing heli-mustering services across the top end of Australia. Their lifestyle is one that many Australians may have read about, but few have experienced first-hand.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 5

Milton has put a bounty on the biggest barramundi someone can catch at Coolibah. It's an annual fishing competition. But the competition is rigged. Trevor the Cranky Cook is training hard for the upcoming country race meet. He's managed to tame his horse. But how's he going to go against the Boss's sister? Little Milton goes into training for a mini-rodeo. And a life threatening medical emergency, hundreds of kilometers away from the nearest hospital, shocks everyone.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 6

It's race day: the showdown between Trevor the Cranky Cook and Milton's sister Terry. The last time Trevor raced was in 1984, when his horse threw him in the final straight. Young Jeff is left alone at Coolibah to keep the work going. But he's starting to wonder if he'll ever fly at this far flung cattle station. Milton finds a massive python...that has swallowed a wallaby.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 7

Bushfires break out at Coolibah. It's Milton's worst fear. With the fire burning up paddocks of cattle feed, he'll have to fight through the night to contain it. And he finds a surprising ally to go into battle with him. Milton has an up close and personal experience with one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the outback.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 8

The Joneses leave the comfort of Coolibah to spend a few days at the 100th Anniversary Brunette Races & Camp Draft. The best riders in The Territory converge on the dusty cattle station to meet and compete. It's a big deal for Cristina. She's been training on her prized horse for months. But how is she going to fare against the toughest cowboys in Australia? Raine gets frocked up for Fashions on the Field, while Little Milton rides in his first Potty-calf Rodeo.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 9

Milton faces his worst nightmare. News is radioed through that a chopper has crashed 50km from Coolibah. He heads up a search party to find the wreckage and, hopefully, survivors. The Cook's on holidays, so Cristina's hired a couple of British backpackers to fill in. They've never been on a farm before and one of the girls has never cooked before. There'll be hell to pay from Milton if the food's not on the table when the mob of cowboys and pilots return from a long day's mustering.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 10

Trevor the Cranky Cook returns to find the British Backpackers have made 'changes' to his kitchen. And he's not happy about it. Milton encounters a fiery act of nature. Raine gives Little Milton a lesson about the Indigenous people of the Territory. And Milton carries out the dying wish of his mate Buckley. It's a wake, Northern Territory style.
