A whole year of magical memories.

Summer Bay may not technically be a real place but, all the cute snaps from the Home And Away cast have us wishing we lived there!

The almost always-sunny coastal town is home to some of our favourite characters. And when they’re not in character, the actors are often having fun on set, behind the scenes or out and about.

While we could pay a visit to the iconic filming location at Sydney’s Palm beach, it’s not quite the same as catching a glimpse of Ada Nicodemou and Penny McNamee having lunch, or newcomer Cameron Daddo hanging out with the cast.

We’ve rounded up our favourite photos for what life is like behind the scenes on Home And Away. Be warned, you’ll probably get a big dose of FOMO also known as ‘fear of missing out.’

The friends who pose together…


After backlash from fans towards Sam over her character Jasmine trying to gain custody of baby Grace, Penny sprung to her friend’s defence.

“This is Sam. Sam is not trying to steal my baby. Sam is a great actor. And a beauuuutiful person. Be like Sam.

“P.S Any mean comments aimed at Sam, and you’ll have ME to deal with!”
