Where is Home and Away filmed?

by Axil07

Hi could anyone tell me where in Australia is Home and Away filmed? When we visit Australia we would like to pay a visit to the place it is filmed and hopefully meet some of the cast. Does anyone know if its possible to meet them when there?Appreciate any replies. Thanks

For all things Home and Away - including filming locations:

No idea if meeting cast is possible, or if they'll be filming interior (closed set) or exterior scenes when you're there.

In terms of 'Summer Bay' i.e. the beach & surf club that is filmed in North Palm Beach.. about an hour from Sydney..
As far as I know they film mainly during their winter months ( June- October)
In relation to the studio filming I don't know where that is done..

Sorry, link didn't work properly. If on the link, you scroll down to tips, click on that, and that will take you to Home & Away tip.

Home and away is filmed Palm Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches and surrounding area's, at least the outdoor scenes anyway. I know there is actually a home and away tour you can do from sydney but they don't guarantee that you will see the cast. the official site fro home and away is is and for the tour just google home and away tour and something should come up.

Hope this helps!

Wow I thought they no longer film "Home & Away"! It's the one where Ryan Kwanten, the guy from "True Blood", used to act, right? :)

Travel Tips for Sydney

Weather and things to do

by gdaysydneysider

It's a fair question, when I first moved to Sydney I had to get used to the temps because 30degC in Qld is not the same 30degC in Sydney - not as much humidity makes a big difference.

July has been very mild and dry, closer to 70F and blue, blue skies. As mentioned August is our coldest month though but it won't drop much lower than 60F during the day. Some Nth Hemisphere travellers don't realise that we have quite varied temps between night and day so if you're out and about, realise that once that sun goes down the temperature's going to drop significantly.

Because we normally have such great weather, sometimes I find certain areas in Sydney aren't built for rain but if it looks like rain I just pack a compact umbrella in my handbag and I'm fine.

Not sure if this is your thing but the Sydney Design Festival will be on and you might catch the end of the International Boat Show at Darling Harbour. Otherwise check out the markets that are on all around town and if you're into live music there are some great bands in town or

Have a great time! Cruising the harbour and getting to see the city from a different perspective - i love it!

Sydney one of the most beautiful city built around the best harbour in the world. The city was once awarded to host the Olympic Games year 2000. My greatest and most unforgetable memory of Sydney was undoubtedly the Millenium celebration. More than a million people from world wide gather at the city center waiting to welcome the new millenium.

The fireworks started as early as nine at Darling Harbour. Then, some greater shows from the Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Darling Harbour while the celebration reached its peak moment stepping into the new millenium. Generally, almost all roads were closed except for the major traffic. Every corners were flooded with people, especially around Rocks area.

Throughout the one whole night, the excitement had never stopped. Fireworks, open concert and variety of shows. We started our 'journey' from Darling Harbour, spending a little time and had our dinner there. Then, we moved towards the Harbour Bridge. Along the way, we squeezed thru some crowded areas passing by The Rocks and foot of Harbour Bridge before we finally found a place with clearer view. Waiting for the countdown!

All I gotta say is, the celebration was fascinating and I was very glad to be around in Sydney.

New Year's Eve In Sydney

by RedEaredPanda

If you are ever in Sydney on New Year's Eve you must get a glimpse of the New Years Eve Firework display over Sydney Harbour. Its the most spectacular show ever seen. Thousands of people ( Locals and Tourist) gather the streets the to watch the show. Some even camp out the night before just to get a good spot. The Firework Display starts at 9:00 pm. There are various Hot Spots to see it, however the Best one is at McMahons Point.

Take a trip down to Bondi...

Take a trip down to Bondi beach. It's a real Australian icon, although remember that if it doesn't suit you, there are lots more beaches to choose from! You might even feel like staying in the area, and there are quite a few places to choose from, especially if you're a backpacker. Whether you stay or not, it's an easy bus ride (or bus + train via Bondi Junction) from the city centre. For the adventurous, try walking from Coogee beach to Bondi (a few hours walk, depending on your pace) - take some water with you and slap on some sunscreen first though! I enjoyed it when I did it, but I was on the verge of heatstroke when I finished - due to a lack of water!
