When did Home and Away start?

While Summer Bay may boast white sands and endless blue skies, life is far from perfect for the residents.

Since the first episode of Home and Away saw foster parents Pippa and Tom Fletcher move into the caravan park in 1988, the bay has been the backdrop to drama, romance and tragedy for its characters.

Why do people love Home and Away?

The award-winning Australian soap introduced us to a cast of memorable characters: Alf Stewart, the no-nonsense owner of the bait shop and town veteran; the warm and caring Pippa, who took in troubled kids for over a decade; the stern headmaster, Donald Fisher; Sally Fletcher, who grew up on screen until her departure in 2008; and the ever troublesome Sutherland family, who weathered storylines involving a mine shaft collapse, long-lost children, switched-at-birth babies, a sexual assault, criminal charges and fake miscarriages.

Home and Away has never been short of troublemakers, rebellious teenagers and true villains. More recently residents of Summer Bay were left rocked by the sudden death of Robbo after he was targeted by a terrifying gang, Mason Morgan met a tragic end when he was caught in a hospital siege, and in 2018 Alf found his life hanging in the balance when he fell down a huge sink hole in the Bay.

Such dramatic plotlines and entertaining characters have kept the soap rating strongly and it’s watched by millions of people at its home on Channel Five, having moved there from ITV in 2000.
