Josie/Amanda’s Apartment


Though not seen on screen often, this building was used as the exterior location of the apartment first occupied by Josie Russell. It was then passed on to Robbie & Tasha before finally being occupied by Amanda Vale, during which time there were a few shots of the building (Episode 4152, 2006) when Amanda tried to make a getaway from the police.

Whilst in the show the building is on Palmer Street, the same road as the Drop In Centre, in reality it lies over 30km away on Beach Road in Collaroy, overlooking Collaroy and Narrabeen beaches. The building is also within walking distance of the locations used for The Palace (now demolished) and the Beachside Diner.
