The landmark series premieres on Wednesday 9 October at 8.30pm with a focus on the Riverina region of New South Wales.

The first two seasons of Struggle Street gave a voice to Australians doing it tough and sparked a national conversation on a range of issues facing some of the country’s most disadvantaged communities.

In the four years since SBS first aired Struggle Street, the country remains at crisis point. Now, more than three million Australians (13.2%) live below the poverty line. Poverty and hardship are getting worse, and for the more than 30% of the population who live outside Australia’s capital cities, disadvantage is more prevalent.*

Premiering on Wednesday 9 October at 8.30pm on SBS, season 3 of four-part observational documentary Struggle Street will explore the economic, social and intergenerational struggles facing Australians in rural and regional communities.
