Trivia

Of all the houses, 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, officially known as Summer Bay House, is the only set that still remains, and maintains more or less the same appearance from when the show premiered in 1988. The only other location that has also been used throughout the series is Summer Bay High School, however it has undergone extensive set redesigns over the years. The Summer Bay Diner was introduced at the very end of the first season, and had also been a mainstay of the show, but has had three separate incarnations following a fire (2000), and land subsidence (2008), while the Summer Bay Surf Lifesaving Club made its first appearance in the middle of the second season, and likewise has undergone significant changes over the years, some reflecting the actual filming location, which has remained the same since 1989.

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 »

A good place to escape to!
12 July 1999 | by Leon-40See 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.
