Trivia

Ray Meagher remains the only original cast member still on the show since its premiere in 1988. Kate Richie (Sally) and Norman Coburn (Fisher) received a Guinness World Record along with Meagher for being the longest-serving actors and actress in an Australian serial in 2001. Coburn left in 2003 after fifteen years, while Richie left in 2008 after twenty years on the show. Both have since been eclipsed by Lynne McGranger, who has held the role of Irene Roberts since 1992, and is now the longest-serving actress in Australian television history behind Meagher. Ada Nicodemou has also been on the show continuously for twenty years, since 2000, also overtaking Coburn and Richie. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best TV shows ever made!
21 November 2000 | by daniel_hofverbergSee all my reviews

Home and Away is definitely my favorite TV show. There are not many shows made that compares to this one. It´s a great show with interesting storylines, good actors and a good script. There is not much more to add, really...

Home and Away is definitely the best Australian show ever made, and even counting shows from all countries, it´s still one of the very best. I can definitely recommend you all to watch this.

Since I live in Scandinavia, we are a couple of years behind Australia in the airings so I haven´t seen the last couple of years of the Australian productions, plus that the stations here skipped a number of episodes in the beginning, but the 600 or so episodes that I have seen has been great!
