This ‘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?

Worth it
, Jun 2022
Ethan who plays Tane join the bus tour and he was one of the nicest guys and humble about his experiences and gave us alot of insight to home & away. Locations were amazing to acrually see and experience
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi Sharn, we love being able to arrange for actors to be on the bus and to offer the "Meet an Actor" tour. Thanks so much for your positive feedback. I'll let Tane (Ethan) know how much you enjoyed it!
Very disappointed
, Mar 2022
We were very disappointed with tour. When we read behind scene tour, meet stars we didn't expect general public could do the same.- we thought we would be closer to stars, hear more of dialogue from stars and director ( for a small group head phones could be used)the only difference was we could get a signed photo. For length of tour we thought a beverage such as tea/ coffee/ water would be supplied as other tours we have done at similar price included a beverage. Driver and hostess friendly and answered our questions.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Hello John, I appreciate your feedback. Firstly the tour has never been described as a "behind the scenes tour". Secondly, the "Filming Tour", which you booked has always been described as a bit of gamble. On a good day we get lots of time with actors who have photos specifically with our group. Sometimes it just doesn't work like that though and that's why we offer the Meet an Actor tour. This tour gives guaranteed time with an actor and there are no uncertainties or gambles. I'm afraid that can be the nature of the Filming Tour. I'm sorry again, it wasn't what you expected, but I'm very glad you were happy with Paul and Tania, our driver and tour guide. Regards. Al
Ethan aka Tane made this tour
, Jan 2022
Having the ability to explore Ethan Browne aka Tane Parata life within Home and Away and his outside life was fantastic. He was such a pleasurable person to talk too. The Actors contribution to these tours makes them awesome. Thank you to the Actors that are prepared to come on these tours, you make them awesome. Also thank you to our Driver and Tour Guide for giving us a great time.

Hi Pauline, many thanks indeed for your review and all the encouraging words. We do all we can to provide the fans with the best experience we can. Thanks again.
Meet the actor is a must or give it a miss.
, Jan 2022
The only memorable part was getting to hear from Sarah Roberts first hand/in person with regards to her rather candid insights and views on her experiences on the show as well as a little bit about her life outside the show. She was absolutely delightful and a breath of fresh air! We also got to have a photo with her and she was extremely generous with her time in offering to send a video message to any fans known to us back home via our mobile phones. The remainder of the tour was badly organised, quite vanilla and uneventful to be honest.

Worthwhile for any H & A fan

Seeing the locations was excellent and whilst the filming was viewed from a distance it was great to see how a scene evolved. Hosts were great, full of information and looked after us very well

Meeting Colby and we’ll, what can I say, the huge surprise that the tour guides were in on. They pulled off a surprise from a friend in the UK, with an engraved bottle of champers and afternoon tea at the Boathouse-very memorable day, thank you.

Great day out!

Great day out! Lots of fun and interesting facts and stories. Tim (Colby) was very entertaining and a great host. Grant and Lisa were very accommodating and made sure everyone had a great time.

Thanks Kimberley, soooo glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks for your review.
The entire tour was incredibly enjoyable
, Mar 2020
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
The pier and the bait shop
, Mar 2020
Excellent tour, great to see where home and away is filmed, knowledgeable and very friendly bus driver and tour guide, actually saw some filming, couldn’t meet any of the actors owing to corona virus, lovely part of the world and awesome to see the locations we see on tv in the show, we’ll worth it if you are a home and away fan
Loved it!

Lovely fun afternoon, the team were very attentive and made the experience a pleasure. The pick up was as described, the tour was as expected and the meet and greet was a lovely addition. All very welcoming.
For big fans only
, Oct 2019
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.
My Home and Away Experience
, Oct 2019
I found Grant our driver and Lisa our tour guide very informative and gave everyone doing the your a insight to how the show was put together. It was very nice to see the main points of interest in the show.
Home and away tour
, Sep 2019
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
Great tour

Flew from Perth for Home and Away tour , they cancelled 2 days before holiday ,with multiple request of money to be returned 7 days later still getting excuses,save your money catch a bus $10 per person.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Hello, I am very sorry to read your review. 1. We provided you with about 5 days notice 2. I explained that my wife was having a baby and also had to have a post birth operation, so attending to admin and refunds was very difficult for me that week. 3. I did provide you with a full refund just 2 days after the date you had booked the tour for. 4. How can you suggest people catch a public bus if you have not actually done the tour yet? 5. There are certain times in life when it is respectful to be patient. I clearly stated that I was very pre-occupied and apologised I could not give you an immediate refund, but would attend to it as soon as I could. I think you have been incredibly unfair.
