Day trip from Sydney to Palm Beach

Known to many as the location of the fictional Summer Bay, setting of Home and Away, Palm Beach attracts a few fans, but not nearly as many as you might expect. In fact, you really need to know what you’re looking for, because zero effort is made to point out the locations.

We were woefully ill-equipped for the task of spotting them, as we had probably seen Home and Away a handful of times between us – and in my case at least, it must be more than 10 years ago. So we stumbled about trying to figure out whether we recognised things from the opening credits and had a lovely day regardless, because Palm Beach is a stunningly beautiful place!
