Of all the homes, shops, clubs and other locations that have featured in the show since its inception, as of the 2008 season the Summer Bay Caravan Park residence remains the only set that still remains and maintains more or less the same appearance from when the show premiered in 1988. The only other locations that have also been used throughout the series are the Summer Bay Surf Club and Summer Bay High School however they have undergone extensive set redesigns over the years.

A good place to escape to!
12 July 1999 | by (Perth) – See all my reviews

Summer Bay is a good place to escape to, every night. Something you can relate to..fun,vibrant, and there is always something happening, you're never bored! Over the years you get to think you know the characters, you've been watching them for so long. A show which I'll look back on and remember.
