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 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.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 11

The Jones' family head to Katherine for the local Camp Draft. At this competition it'll be Jones versus Jones. The Back Packers decide it's time old Lurch had a haircut. That prompts a guessing game: exactly how old is he under all that hair and dust? Cristina doesn't put in her best performance at the camp draft, which puzzles everyone until Milton makes a big announcement.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 12

Cristina Jones is pregnant. The Outback is a long, long way from medical help, so Cristina takes Milton and Little Milton 3,000 kilometres to Brisbane for scan to be safe. During the ultrasound, the family meets their newest for the first magical time. It's also Cristina and Milton's wedding anniversary, excuse enough for Mrs. Jones to go on a shopping spree. And while the bosses are away, the Coolibah Crew can play. Chief pilot, Stephen Groves, gets down and dirty on the professional rodeo circuit.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 13

It's the school holidays and teenagers Beau and Alex return to Coolibah. Milton figures it's time to give them a good bush education. He gets them mustering and gives Beau a driving lesson in a road train. Then the biggest test: he needs help to retrieve a rogue croc trapped on the banks of the Victoria River. Young Alex has to confront her biggest fear. Cristina prepares for the arrival of the new Jones, but how do you shop for baby clothes when you live in the middle of nowhere?

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 14

The final day of muster is the most dangerous. It's a bull catch - hundreds of kilograms of flying fury to be brought in. As the workers of Coolibah face the last muster of the year there's more trouble afoot. The croc Milton caught yesterday has escaped. There are tracks all around the homestead. With the help of brother-in-law Hamish and a helicopter, Milton's out to get it back.

Keeping up with the Joneses - Episode 15

The mustering season is over and Christmas is coming to Coolibah. This year will be special because Cristina's baby is nearly due. Milton has a hell of a time getting a Christmas tree for the house. Hamish considers a career change during the wet, after Milton volunteers him for the one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: Croc egg collecting.
