‘When we were planning our trip to Australia, this was the first thing I booked. We watch Home and Away and have done for years. This was the best experience, and you really do feel like you are experiencing the show. If you love Home and Away, this is a must do.’

    Even though the weather was not as sunny as Summer Bay might lead you to believe, the tour was absolutely amazing! I was very fortunate to be able to do both the Meet An Actor, and the Behind The Scenes tours, ans they were both great! Being able to see the sights of Summer Bay, and to see where some of the houses that you know and love from Home and Away was an unfortable experience. The tour guide and driver were so friendly and welcoming, and made the experience even better. I would HIGHLY recommend to bo both tours, if you get a chance, because they both are so different! A huge thank you goes to our guide when they did not know where filming was going to be on the date that we were there, and gave us a few extra sights to see until we knew where filming was. If you are a fan of the show, I cannot recommend this experience enough!

    What an unexpected fun day with one of the actors on the show as the tour guide that we could ask all sorts of questions about the show. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It was great to see where the show is filmed. The day I went the weather was glorious and I did get to meet one of the actors. It was just a shame that our tour didn’t get to see much filming.

    Everything about this tour was fantastic from start to finish. Best 60th Birthday Present I could ever wish for from my husband. Managed to meet Tim Franklin (Colby). He was so generous with his time and insight about behind the scenes, filming and what is involved of being a character on the show. Paul our bus driver and tour guide Tanya were both great. Played along with my birthday surprise and were both very informative. Nothing was a problem even with the rain. I would give nothing more than to do this tour again and hopefully meet other stars.

    We had a fantastic day which was a milestone birthday celebration for my husband. He absolutely loved the tour.

    We did their Morning Home & Away tour on a Monday to hopefully see some filming. A long bus ride to Palm Beach with video & commentary on the series. General Sight seeing of the area used for the series. We did get to see some filming. Lots of photographic opportunities. And a long bus ride back!! We did this tour for our daughter. Not being such a fanatic of the series I got a little bored. But she enjoyed the tour and many selfies of icon spots from the series!!

    We selected the ‘filming highly likely’ tour but told as we boarded the bus that it was a bit too windy so we would not be seeing any filming that day. Seriously ? The weather was fine and we often see the show where the weather is a lot less favourable,yet they still were filming ! A flamin’ feeble excuse if you ask me….an expensive bus trip to palm beach was all that we got…… never again !

This Sydney Home and Away Tour to ‘Summer Bay’, aka Palm Beach in the sublime Northern Beaches, is the ultimate pilgrimage for fans of the long-running Australian TV show. You’ll have the opportunity to explore a number of outdoor locations that regularly feature on the show, and enjoy the expert commentary on all things H&A from your friendly and knowledgeable guide. On certain days you may see filming in progress, and it’s even possible to book a ‘meet-and-greet’ with a star!

After pick-up from the CBD, you’ll depart the city in comfortable air-conditioned transport and head over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and on towards the Northern Beaches. As you arrive in Palm Beach, which stands in for H&A’s fictional setting of Summer Bay, you’ll start to see some very familiar sights — including the beach, the lighthouse, the pier, Alf’s bait shop and the surf club. There will be plenty of time to explore at your own pace, walk in the footsteps of your favourite characters, and take lots of selfies!

Depending on the day of the week, you may be lucky enough on this Sydney Home and Away Tour to see filming in progress. Watch the cast and crew at work and gain an understanding of what goes into the production of the series that’s been a part of Australia’s television landscape for more than three decades. There’s also the option on certain days to book a meet-and-greet with a star from the show, where you’ll have the opportunity to get photos and an autograph.

When it’s time to depart Palm Beach, you’ll head off for the breathtaking coastal drive to Manly, via the North Bilgola Lookout, Whale Beach and Avalon Beach. The tour ends in Manly, but not before you’ve driven past the ritzy homes and fabulous surf beach that this bustling beachside retreat is renowned for.

You may want to spend some time exploring Manly, or cruise straight back to Circular Quay on one of the harbour’s famous ferries.

Enjoy this Sydney Home and Away Tour!
