In the near future, Home and Away may have to reconsider several sequences due to the likelihood of a frequent filming site being demolished and replaced.
According to Australia’s TV Tonight, a local council will vote this week on whether to accept plans to demolish the Palm Beach Boathouse and replace it with a new facility, a process that may take up to six months.
The area is utilised in the soap for the restaurant and Alf’s bait store, so they’ll have to figure out a method to avoid utilising both places for the next six months and, if they keep filming at the new site, explain why it looks so different.
When soaps move sets, they usually get to play the ‘Big Explosion Storyline,’ so it may be something to look forwards to in the coming months.
One of the show’s next dramatic storylines will see a character inexplicably die, with previews hinting at who it may be.
Senior Constable Cash Newman is played by Nicholas Cartwright, a military veteran who served in the Australian Army for six years and has no prior television experience.
Home and Away airs on Channel 5 (UK) weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm, with first peek screenings at 6.30pm on 5STAR. In the United Kingdom, Amazon Prime Video offers a selection of vintage episodes.
