Home and Away
Filmed in Sydney, New South Wales, with most of the shots done in Seven Network studios. Scenes done with the Beachside Diner, the Drop In Centre, the interior of the Surf Club and the interior of the Sutherlands' house are all filmed in the studios.

Of the exterior scenes, such as the Beachside Diner, the exterior of the Surf Club and the beach itself are shot in Palm Beach, a suburb of Sydney located on the northern beaches, nearly a two hours bus ride from the Central Business District. The long and secluded beach, with Barren Joey at the end is a favourite tourist stop for fans.

Is Ramsay Street arguably the most famous Australia street? Set in a small peaceful suburb called Erinsborough, Neighbours originally centred around three families, the Ramsays, the Robinsons and the Clarkes. Local residents also appeared for romance and conflict. The narrative structures is sufficiently loose to allow for a considerable turnover of characters.

Shot in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. Ramsay Street is a real location called Pin Oak Court, a cul-de-sac in the Melbourne suburbs. To get to Pin Oak Court from Melbourne, you need to catch a train to Glen Waverley Station, then a bus from there to the top of Weeden Drive. Walk down Weeden Drive and Pin Oak Court is the third road on the left.

Survivor II
 Early speculation had the Survivor II being shot either in Kakadu or Arnhem Land, in Australia’s Northern Territory. For the purposes of control, the filming location was later revealed to be within a privately owned cattle station known as Goshen along the Herbert River, with Tully Falls nearby. Just over 110 kms south west of Cairns, at the edge of Davies Creek National Park.

Sylvania Waters
Premiering on Australian television in 1992, this documentary style TV series followed the lives of an Australian family,  chronicling the life of the couple Noeline Baker, Laurie Donaher and their largely adult offspring. Set in the harbourside suburb of Sylvania Waters in southern Sydney, it was billed as a ‘real-life’ soap opera.

The agreement struck with the family was that the crew was allowed to film ‘anywhere, at any time, except when family members were using the bathroom or making love’. The family have now left the suburb to live elsewhere.
