Ok so we are truly sad people and don't really call ourselves Home and Away converts but couldn't come to Sydney from Adelaide without visiting. Took us a bit to find the right area for the surf club and was almost going to leave but then did some Googling and found where we needed to be. Got some photos as... More

It's far out of Sydney, but definately worth the trip. Not just the beach, but everything around is beautiful! And if you go, please stay for the sunset and take a walk around the area!

Palm Beach is a playground for Sydney's rich and famous. The long sweep of beach is stunning with headlands at both ends and the Barrenjoey Lighthouse atop the north end. The walk up to the lighthouse gives great views back down Pittwater and the Northern Beaches and north up the Central Coast. Well worth the effort. Its a great place... More

We got the L90 bus from Sydney to Palm Beach. It took about an hour and a half to get there but it was great travelling through the suburbs of Sydney. The bus stops at the opposite end of the beach to that used to film the TV series and they run every 15 mins. The beach is beautiful and... More

The backyard to Home and Away- it's beautiful here ( I visited a few years back in the rain so we could not walk around ) We stayed in one of the amazing hill top properties VERY expensive (there was 10 of us) Perfect for a weekend getaway from Sydney x
