Captain Michael Fury is an Irish patriot transported to New South Wales for his political involvement. He escapes from the convict colony and lives the life of a bushranger until he's captured by a settler's daughter, Jeanette Dupre. Dupre receives a £100 reward for the capture. Fury is pardoned by the Governor. He reunites with Dupre and they marry.

Roach got the idea for making the film after reading Robbery Under Arms. It was originally announced that Roach would be adapting the novel and using Brian Aherne and Margaret Sullavan as stars, but this was abandoned, apparently out of fear of offending Australians, and Roach instead commissioned an original screenplay that was to be similar to the novel under the title of Captain Midnight. There also may have been an issue with the rights to the novel, which were held by Cinesound Productions. The eventual script was not based on any particular bushranger.
Both Brian Aherne and Victor McLaglen had toured Australia and were anxious for the film to be as accurate as possible. Frank Baker, brother of Snowy Baker, acted as technical adviser. A few Australians were in the cast, including Billy Bevan and Frank Hagney.
