Home and Away is a long running soap that chronicles the lives, loves, happiness, and heart-breaks of the residents of Summer Bay, a small coastal town in New South Wales. The beach and most outdoor shots surrounding the town are filmed at Palm Beach, Barrenjoey Peninsula on Sydney’s northern beaches. The most recognisable feature of Palm Beach from Home and Away is the Surf Club. It is the North Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club at Governor Phillip Park, Palm Beach.
After the Seven Network cancelled their soap opera Neighbours on 12 July 1985 due to low ratings, rival network Ten picked it up and turned it into a success A couple of years later, Seven’s head of drama, Alan Bateman, became desperate to get back into the soap market and began to work out how to launch another soap that was not a copy of Neighbours. While on a trip to Kangaroo Point, New South Wales with his family, Bateman began talking to locals who were “up in arms” over the construction of a foster home for children from the city. Seeing the degree of conflict the “influx of parentless children on a tight-knit community” was having, Bateman came away with the idea for a new serial. He explained “Nobody in the community wanted them to move in and I began to wonder how streetwise city kids would adapt to the new lifestyle. Suddenly I thought, there is my slice of life in a community.” Bateman began outlining the storyline and set the serial in the fictional town of Summer Bay.
