Cast members travelled to Vaucluse to film Justin Morgan’s legal proceedings.
Although Home and Away is well-known for filming year-round on Palm Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the soap occasionally switches up its settings for specific plotlines. James Stewart’s character Justin Morgan from Summer Bay was recently detained for beating a guy he thought had injured his daughter Ava Gilbert (Annabel Wolfe).
In recent episodes, Justin’s court case was being played out, and his girlfriend Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) and her nephew Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) were visibly upset by the prospect of Justin receiving a sentence. The garage owner was spared prison time but was required to take an anger management course and perform 500 hours of community service.
Ada just posted a touching clip that was shot in front of the courthouse. In the scenario, Theo sobs as he confesses that he’stuffed up’ his testimony, sending Leah into a tailspin over what would happen to her boyfriend.
Leah was consoled by her close friend Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) in the final moments of the scene when she realised how serious the issue was.
We had a great time filming this plot under the talented Ian Hughes’ direction. Please have a look at it this week and comment on what you think,” she added in the description.
When one of the viewers asked where the courthouse scene was set, a fan answered that it was at Strickland House in Vaucluse, Sydney.
Australian director Baz Luhrmann frequently uses the historic structure as a backdrop for Australia in his films. It has also appeared on television in the reality programmes The Apprentice and Farmer Wants A Wife.
The venue may be rented for a wedding for $760, or $1060 for three hours if alcohol is served or you need access for a vehicle. The cost of an extra hour is $100, although the producers may have spent more to get it for the soap.
“We appreciate your effort in finding it. It looked incredible,” enthused one admirer.
Another person responded, “I went there as a kid,” while a third said, “It was interesting.”
Justin held his therapeutic sessions at Sydney’s Scheyville Camp Precinct, according to another viewer. The admirer claimed they recognised the place right away because of how impressive the former military camp seemed on TV.
“I instantly recognised it. It’s just a short distance from my childhood home, she remarked.
