A Country Practice is Australia’s most popular television series, running for more than 13 years from 1981 to 1994.

And more than 28 years on from the final episode, the beloved characters of the show look very different.

Georgie Parker, Josephine Mitchell, Di Smith, Anne Tenney and Kate Raison reunited for lunch earlier this month.

The TV stars were almost unrecognisable as they embraced one another and smiled for a photo.

Georgie played Nurse Lucy Gardner in the series, while Josephine played the role of Jo Loveday, and Di portrayed Dr. Alex Fraser. 

Meanwhile, Anne portrayed the role of Melissa ‘Molly’ Jones in the series while Kate played National Park ranger Cathy Hayden.

A Country Practice, which aired on Network Seven, was Australia’s longest-running drama series until the late 1990s when that record was overtaken by Neighbours. 

Set in the fictional NSW rural town of Wandin Valley, the series revolved around the medical practice’s staff and their interactions with the rest of the town.

The show followed the lives of characters particularly its small hospital, veterinary surgery, RSL club and police station.

Shown in twice weekly hour long episodes the show tackled its fair share of hot button issues such as HIV, suicide and recognition of Aboriginals.

It also boasted a slew of A-list guest stars including Nicole Kidman, Toni Colette, Simon Baker and Delta Goodrem, with even then-prime minister Bob Hawke appearing on screen in 1986.

The show was cancelled by Channel Seven in 1993, but was rebooted for a short-lived stint on Channel 10 in 1994.
