* GenerationalSaga: A couple are shown (in reverse) over the show's run.
** Sam and Sarah are two convict children who initially long to return to the old country. They eventually marry and stay in Australia, having descendants with no memory of England and who feel right at home down under.
** Michaelis' parents migrate to Australia from Greece. He grows up with English as his first language and marries an Australian woman. His son Mike is indistinguishable from his peers, apart from having grandparents who speak mostly Greek.

series.



* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The series stretches across 220 years, so naturally. Many characters are seen from old age to early childhood, and they come from many different backgrounds, although most are Anglo-Australian for historically logical reasons. Because of having a different child protagonist per episode, it also clocks up at 22 central protagonists, with even more main characters. Protagonists are often secondary characters in other kids' stories however.

Added DiffLines:

* BinocularShot: Near the beginning of Michaelis' episode as he spies on his neighbours watching 'The Adventures of Robin Hood'. Unlike some examples however, we actually see one circle instead of two.

''My Place'' is probably the most ambitious children's story ever written about Australian history. It spans from the modern day, to before the colonisation of the continent. The story was first told in a book by Nadia Wheatley, and later adapted for TV by {{ABC3}} and the Australian Children's Television Foundation. It would be more accurate, however, to call it a loose collection of short, interlinked stories.
