Channel 7 have officially announced its Sunday night period drama, A Place to Call Home will not be returning for a third season.

Starring Marta Dusseldorp and Noni Hazlehurst, the period series is set in rural Australia in the 1950s.

It's romantic saga based in the fictional town of Inverness – home to the Bligh family estate Ash Park – with a landscape as vast and dramatic as the people who live there.

Camelot, the grandest house near Camden on Sydney's outskirts, was the location for much of the filming.

Set among rolling green pastures with well-established cottage-style gardens, and a winding, tree-lined drive from gates originally from Yaralla, Concord, the historic Narellan mansion was built in 1888 for the White pastoralist family.

The 55-room fairytale-like, Camelot (pictured below) and its gardens have clearly been stunningly restored by the owners, Brendan and Rachel Powers. 

Whispers of the show's demise began when options to keep actors on the show past season two had lapsed last month.

The popular Sunday night television show, A Place to Call Home secured its second season last July.

The Channel 7 drama averaged around 1.2 million viewers nationally per episode since its premiere season.

The second series began with a 865,000, well down on the first series launch of 1.78 million, and last Sunday managed just 855,000 viewers

A Place to Call Home is the brainchild of Packed to the Rafters and Winners and Losers creator Bevan Lee.
