Travelling North tells the story of Frank (Leo McKern), a crotchety old man with an unending zest and passion for life, and Frances (Julia Blake), his much younger companion, travelling to Queensland to enjoy their retirement and each other. Unfortunately, the idyllic north cannot calm Frank's complex personality and desire to live life to the fullest, and Frances watches helplessly as Frank struggles to understand his own emotional and physical limitations.
Directed by Carl Schultz, with memorable performances by Graham Kennedy as Freddie, the meddlesome but loyal neighbour, and Henri Szeps as the long-suffering local doctor weathering an endless stream of self-diagnoses by Frank, Travelling North travels to the heights of happiness and the depths of despair.
