Return Details

Manly Beach, New South Wales, Australia
This official ‘Home and Away’ tour departs from the Rocks in Sydney. You’ll travel by a climate-controlled coach bus to Palm Beach, also known as Summer Bay, which is the main filming location for ‘Home and Away.’ The TV show debuted in Palm Beach in 1987, and over the years has become one of Australia’s favorite TV programs.

During this tour, your guide takes you to numerous outdoor filming locations such as the Summer Bay Surf Club, The Pier, and Alf’s Bait Shop, while telling you fun trivia about ‘Home and Away’ and its cast. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the show’s filming locations, and you could even run into the real cast if by chance they’re filming on the day of your tour.

After your time on Palm Beach, follow your guide to Manly Beach, where you can see other filming locations before your tour ends. Here you can choose to explore the beach-side suburb on your own time, independently.

When you’re ready to leave Manly Beach, just take the Sydney Ferry (own expense) back to Sydney, and cross Sydney Harbour on the way to Circular Quay.

LOCATION TOURS TO HOME AND AWAY - 2 MAJOR OPTIONS 1) FILMING VERY LIKELY TOUR Want to see the drama of Summer Bay unfold right before your eyes? Book a “Filming Very Likely” tour to get a behind the scenes look at the action.

Most Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the year are considered “filming very likely” days (some exceptions apply). PLEASE NOTE THIS TOUR IS A GAMBLE. YOU MAY MEET ACTORS, YOU MAY NOT! 2) MEET AN ACTOR TOUR On days when filming is not expected (Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun) either Colby, Mackenzie, Robbo, Heath Braxton, Tane or Nikau will be present on part of the tour. You'll see all the same sights as the "Filming Very Likely" tour but you'll also get quality time with one of these actors, including opportunities for photos and autographs and some awesome Q&A time.

Great day had all round Lisa and Paul were out tour guides and they were excellent and very knowledgable. We were very fortunate to be at Summer Bay on a day when they were doing filming and we saw Alf, Bella and Tori and as we left the Bay Tori took the time to give us all a wave which was a nice touch. We then went onto the Morgan’s house and met with Jackson (Brodie) in the back garden who is a great down to earth guy who took the time to answer questions take photos and sign autographs and speak to all the people on the tour. Unfortunately it does not look as though Brodie will be returning to Summer Bay anytime soon as this very talented actor is looking to land a major part in a blockbuster movie in the US and I for one wish Jackson all the best Thanks for a very memorable day This tour is highly recommended

Not much to see as only outside locations are shown and most done in studios ages from summer bay beach, even pier and dinner or salt is very different to outside shown on tv, I went on Friday and saw robbo he was lovely but might have been more exciting if went during filming.

Totally recommend this tour, Lisa our guide was very knowledgeable about what we saw and took time to answer any questions we had and Palm Beach where the soap is filmed is amazing, we then went to a house used as the Morgans back garden and Jake Ryan who plays Robbo was there to sign autographed photos and take a question and answer session, was a really down to earth guy who took time to answer all questions asked and took any photos with people who asked, really top bloke and it was well worth the visit
