Trivia

Summer Bay resident Mrs Peters, played by Gwen Plumb, only appeared in the pilot episode. By the time the green light was given for a full series, she had elected instead to become a founding member of Ten's Richmond Hill (1988) cast, as Mum Foote; the series ran a year. Mrs. Peters was re-worked into the much younger Celia Stewart. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the years, numerous characters have referred to "the city" (meaning Sydney) as being either "up" or "down" from Summer Bay. The general consensus, however, is that Summer Bay is north of Sydney (approximately 100km away), as is the real-life filming location. See more »

Past Glories

Home & Away had its best days in the mid 90's when they actually had good actors and a few decent storylines. It started to go down hill after about 1997 when the characters became all to similar and the storylines revisited (but then again what soapy doesn't?). This show is watchable until you feel the recycling and then its a turnoff. I do admire a couple of the actors though who have stuck with the show and not got stars in their eyes and expectations beyond their abilities.
