Secret Valley

Secret Valley was an Australian children’s television adventure series from 1980 made by the Grundy Organisation and first shown on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It ran for twenty-six episodes.

secret-valleyThe fictitious children’s holiday camp in Bildarra was the setting for Secret Valley, it was transformed from a run down ghost town into a resort. The children who worked and visited the camp often found themselves in battle against a gang of “bad” kids – Spider McGlurk and his gang from “Spider Cave”. These battles usually featured flour bombs and other food related missiles and everyone inevitably ended up in a big mess.

Spider McGlurk and his gang were not the biggest threat to the peace at Secret Valley. Secret Valley was also under threat of closure by the local council, and property developer William Whopper (also known as ‘WW’) played by Hugh Keays-Byrne.

Produced by Roger Mirams who also produced a spin-off series in 1986 (Professor Poopsnagle’s Steam Zeppelin), amongst other programs and series.
