Snobs is a 2003 Australian TV series by Southern Star Group broadcast on the Nine Network.

The series is set in Eden Beach, a fictional town in Sydney's northern beaches and follows the story of a community of travelers known as "The Ferals" who decide to set up camp in the town, despite protest and anger from residents.


Abby Oakley (Indiana Evans), a girl from a wealthy middle-class family, and Marian Freeman (Ross Pirelli), a boy from the group of travellers, act as the main protagonists and form a close friendship despite their differences.

They are often joined by Spike Freeman (Mathew Waters) and Pia Freeman (Ella Roberts) and form the main character group in the show. The title of the show comes from the name of the dog featured in the show, owned by Marian, who acts as a constant companion.

Other major characters in the show are Brooke Buckingham (Brooke Callaghan), former best friend to Abby who, disappointed with her friend's choice of social group, tries many deceitful methods of winning her back, despite still wishing they could be best friends.

Ryan Granger (Alex Hughes) and Sam Keogh (Miles Szanto) act as the bully characters. They are residents of Eden Beach who take particular interest in getting the Ferals out of town, and often resort to ridiculous and callous acts to achieve this, almost all of which backfire on them.

Rachel Oakley (Nathy Gaffney) is Abby's mother, who goes to enormous lengths to try to stop Abby seeing Marian, even going as far as threatening to send her to boarding school.

Tobar Freeman (Craig Elliot) is Marian's father, who at the time of moving to Eden Beach is on probation for robbery, a secret kept from Marian until it is revealed to him later in the series by Rachel Oakley.

Abby's grandmother (Melissa Jaffer) who Abby is sent to live with in the second part of the series after a series of incidents with her parents.

The story culminates in the Ferals leaving Eden Beach after Marian's father comes off probation, with Marian and his mother opting to stay behind when it is revealed he is in fact related to Abby, as Kizzy, the head of the ferals, is the sister to Abby's grandmother. This emerges when Pearl, Kizzy's sister, attempts to persuade her family to remain in town so that Banjo, who is deaf, can have a cochlear implant.
