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 »

Goofs

good show
20 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Even though I am nearly 26 yrs old, I must admit I find Home and Away is one of my favourite, if not favourite Aussie soap around.

I must admit though, one thing that DOES annoy me is how some things drag on and on (Like Project 56).

I live in Brisbane, and was down in Sydney last year, Although I didn't actually go to Palm Beach (where the beach settings are shot), I was glad to at least be in the same city as the show was shot. I do think though, they need a few more new characters in the show.

As for my most liked character.....Well hard to say, Kate Ritchie is now 27 and was only 9 yrs old when she first starred in the soap, in its debut in 1988. Her and Ray Meagher who plays Alf, are the only originals.
