Trivia

After the successful introduction of Cornelia Frances as Morag Bellingham shortly after the show started, plans were made to have Rowena Wallace also guest star, in an effort to reunite the two actresses, who were a smash hit as clashing sisters Barbara and Patricia Hamilton on the earlier Channel 7 soap Sons and Daughters. Wallace however was busy at the time, and despite producers holding on to the idea for another year, the plans never eventuated. The possible role for Wallace at that time was never revealed. Eleven years later, Wallace finally joined the cast as recurring character June Reynolds, who went on to marry Donald Fisher, himself having had a long and bitter history with Morag since the show began.

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 »

Quotes

Colleen Smart: Well, it isn't hard to figure out what's going on, Maximus. I wasn't born yesterday!
Max Sutherland: You can say that again. I mean, you're very smart, Mrs. Smart.

One of the best TV shows ever made!
21 November 2000 | by daniel_hofverbergSee all my reviews

Home and Away is definitely my favorite TV show. There are not many shows made that compares to this one. It´s a great show with interesting storylines, good actors and a good script. There is not much more to add, really...

Home and Away is definitely the best Australian show ever made, and even counting shows from all countries, it´s still one of the very best. I can definitely recommend you all to watch this.

Since I live in Scandinavia, we are a couple of years behind Australia in the airings so I haven´t seen the last couple of years of the Australian productions, plus that the stations here skipped a number of episodes in the beginning, but the 600 or so episodes that I have seen has been great!
