The Wizards of Aus: episode guide
When the constant battles, dragons and fellowships finally become too much for him, Jack — a young wizard — migrates somewhere a little more sane: the western suburbs of Melbourne. Unfortunately, Jack's peace and quiet is cut short after he accidentally transforms Flinders Street Station into a giant fish monster, and the media has a field day. Making matters worse, his nemesis — the dark wizard, Skulldrich — has moved next door and is determined to destroy Jack's new life in the previously peaceful city.
