Dorothy Winchester returns from boarding school in Sydney to her family's Queensland cattle station, Runnibede. There she finds two equally likeable men eager for her hand in marriage: Tom Linton, the gauche station manager, and the more sophisticated Sub-Inspector Dale of the Queensland Mounted Police. When Dorothy is kidnapped by some local Indigenous Australians, who believe that she is their 'Great White Queen' returned from the dead, the two suitors attempt a rescue. The rivalry for Dorothy's affection is resolved when one of them gives his life to save her.
