Trivia

In July 2009 the mayor of Sydney's Pittwater Council presented the cast and crew with the keys to Palm Beach in recognition of the series' 21st anniversary (the beach being a major shooting location). At the Cargo Bar celebration Ray Meagher declared, tongue-in-cheek: "Home and Away is the most financially successful product in the history of the Seven Network. Artistically, some people might argue." See more »

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.
