Home and Away has officially turned 30, making it the second-longest drama series in Australia. We've seen deaths, births, marriages, divorces, affairs, tears and so many laughs throughout the years.
Stars of past and present have been wishing the show a big Happy Birthday, including Kate Ritchie, Luke Mitchell, Emily Symons, Jackson Heywood and more.
Kate Ritchie (who played Sally Fletcher) shared a video of her original script and a gorgeous snap of her very first day on set.
She wrote: "First official day of shooting on a show no one had yet heard of. 1987 Balmain backstreets. Happy 30th Birthday @homeandaway."

Ada Nicodemou (who plays Leah), posted a throwback snap of the cast from the 3000th episode, appearing alongside Bec Hewitt, Tammin Sursok.
"I can't tell u how proud I am to be part of this iconic show, every day I pinch myself that I get to do what I love and work with people I call my family," she wrote.

Jackson Heywood (Brody) posted a birthday shout-out, saying: "HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY HOME AND AWAY!!!! What an incredible honour it is to be part of this show, let alone during its 30th year. Gonna be one hell of a year, cant wait for you all to see what we've got in store!"

Esther Anderson, who played Charlie Buckton, said: "Happy 30th Birthday Home And Away. Congrats on your continued success!! I'm so blessed to have been a part of this show!! Miss all my home and away family..love to you. Started filming my first scenes a decade ago... Thanks for the wonderful memories."
