It's a second migration for the Habib family, first it was Lebanon to Australia, now Lakemba to Vaucluse. But not everyone is happy to see them, and soon the Habibs find themselves in conflict with their new next door neighbours. The O'Neills are Vaucluse royalty - old money and proud of it. They're extremely uncomfortable with goats and chickens, shisha pipes and people of Mediterranean appearance, but the Habibs can't understand what all the fuss is about. One family want to stay, the other family want them gone. Here Come the Habibs brings a fresh comic perspective to multicultural Australia.
