Creating a drive to visit current locations

Recommended Posts

G'day,

I'm a support worker trying to create a trip for a person I support and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. The "locations" section of this site is great but it is a little overwhelming to try and go through them all. We have both done the Flaming Gallah Tour and are looking to do a trip at our own pace this time. We'll have a couple of days to doit and would particularly like to see some of the places that are currently in the show, although significant historical suggestions would be good too, as we have both been watching for many years (he since the beginning!)

Thanks a lot!

Presuming you'd be heading north from the city up Pittwater Road (A8), here's a pointer to some of the major locations in the order that you'd reach them - each location has the address and a map which you can use to input into your GPS or to create your own map etc.

Collaroy:
Beachside Diner (2001-2008)

Narrabeen:
The Beach House (2001-present) - the outside of Irene's house but there's never been actual scenes there

 

At Mona Vale, the road splits into Pittwater Road (towards Church Point and the national park), and Barrenjoey Road (towards Palm Beach)

If you take the Pittwater road going off to the left (bit of a lengthy detour but worth it for die-hard fans):

Church Point:
Blaxland Wharf (2004-present)

Further on from there, you can take a right onto West Head Rd and follow that at the next junction into Ku-ring-gai National Park.

If you drive the full length of the road (about 12km) you'll come to West Head Lookout, which is better known as Stewarts Point

 

Back to Barrenjoey Road going north from Mona Vale...

Newport:
Roman Harris' Townhouse

Clareville:
(taking a left turn onto Central Rd in Avalon Beach and following round to Clareville)
The Original Beach House

Avalon Beach:
(right turn onto Elaine Avenue)
Braxton House
Palmer House
With the new Parata House across the road at 52

These others are all in the surrounding area in Avalon Beach, but it'd be up to you which ones you'd like to see:
Leah's House (2001-2009, where Noah was shot)
Morgan House
Holden/Palmer House (old location, with the old Hunter/Braxton house next door)
Leah's House (2009-2015 - the one that burnt down)
 

Palm Beach:
Bayside Diner (left turn at the Palm Beach suburb sign)

If you remember Michael's Boatshed you can park in the main car park at Palm Beach ferry wharf and walk down the beach to it.

Over the hill from the ferry wharf and you're in more familiar territory, which I would presume you'd remember from the tour. You can zoom into Palm Beach on the main map on our locations page to see the main filming places around there - the Pier Diner, surf club etc. Be sure to head down to the southern end of the beach too if you didn't go there on the tour.


You wouldn't be able to do it in the same day, but if you are long-term fans you could take a trip to the other main filming area NW of Sydney where the tour doesn't go.

Start off by heading to Jones Road in Kenthurst, there you'll find:
Donald Fisher's House (1988-1992)
Celia Stewart's House
Alf & Ailsa's House (1988-2000)

From there, make your way to Pitt Town. Whilst you could go via McClymonts Rd, where Summer Bay House is located, I wouldn't recommend the detour as it's on a private estate and you will not see it from the road. The only things you might catch a glimpse of through the trees are Justin's garage and perhaps some of the caravans way in the distance.

Pitt Town is where you'll find the church used for a number of Summer Bay weddings/funerals. Head south along the road from the church, out of Pitt Town, and you'll come to the A2 (Windsor Rd) which will take you back towards the city.

You could take a right onto Level Crossing Rd in Vineyard which will take you to the Astonis farmhouse, but again you'll only get a glimpse of it through the trees.
