If you fancy yourself as a bit of an Alf Stewart aficionado, you'll already know all about Summer Bay. For those not in the loop, it's the fictional setting of one of Australia's most beloved and longest running television shows - Home and Away.

Due to its mythical nature you can't actually visit the bay itself, but you can take a trip to Palm Beach, which is where the popular soap has been filmed for 21 years. If you're visiting for a weekend and wondering what to do in Sydney, a tour around Palm Beach might be the perfect day out.

Just over an hour's drive away from the heart of Sydney, Palm Beach is at the end of Sydney's stretch of northern beaches. The beach itself is 2km long and features the historic Barranjoey Lighthouse along with popular running and walking tracks for tourists and locals alike.


"There are lots of great eateries along the way, and you'll get a breathtaking view of some of the most beautiful scenery in the city.


Several tourist companies offer guided tours around the beach, making you feel like you're right in the heart of Summer Bay. You will get to visit outdoor filming locations, and while it isn't guaranteed, many tours have a high success rate when it comes to taking a sneak peek at the show's filming.

Even if you're not a Home and Away fan, a tour of Sydney's northern beaches is a great way to kick-start your holiday in the city. There are lots of great eateries along the way, and you'll get a breathtaking view of some of the most beautiful scenery in the city.

If you're looking for holiday accommodation in Sydney, the newly refurbished suites at Mantra on Kent could be the perfect place to unwind after an exciting day in Summer Bay.
