Veteran actor Andrew McFarlane was born in Albany, Western Australia, but grew up on a cattle station in Queensland. As a young adult, he studied law for a year in Melbourne, then turned to horticulture, and eventually decided on a career in acting. After graduating from the NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art) in 1973, he was almost immediately cast in Crawford's drama series "Division 4." A prominent role on "The Sullivans" soon followed.

McFarlane was among the original cast of "The Flying Doctors," one of Australia's most successful drama series to date. When he left the show mid-season, mainly to concentrate on theater work, the ratings dropped considerably. During his break from the series, Andrew starred opposite John Waters in the feature film "Boulvard of Broken Dreams." He also enjoyed a year off from his career, while living in London. In 1989, McFarlane returned to "The Flying Doctors," reprising his role as Dr. Tom Callaghan for a another year.

Andrew McFarlane's movie credits include the dramatic thriller "Little White Lies" opposite Mimi Rogers, the aforementioned "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," ABC's "I Can't Get Stared," and the more recent "Heroes' Mountain." Television appearances include roles on "Halifax f.p," "Paradise Beach," "Water Rats," "Blue Healers" and "All Saints." McFarlane's most recent work include starring roles on "The Alice," and on the long-running classic, Australian soap "Neighbours." Andrew has also been a regular presenter on "Play School," a children's television show, for many years. He also has extensive credits in theatre, and has appeared in numerous productions, on some of Australia's largest stages.
