Deaths

Published December 04, 2014 by Dan | In Categories: Births, Marriages and Deaths


It's often said that Summer Bay must be one of Australia's most dangerous towns, what with the number of natural disasters and it's high mortality rate. Though perhaps if you became a full term resident of the bay, you'd find yourself making it to a ripe age. Unlike the Births and Marriages lists, over three quarters of the deaths in Summer Bay have actually been those of guest characters.

Here we list all those who have died in and out of Summer Bay - an entry shaded in blue denotes a character was part of the main cast, either at the time of their death or during a previous tenure.
