The cast of Home and Away isn’t just colleagues; they’re family, as every true Summer Bay fan knows.
While it’s all business when the cameras are rolling, the stars of the long-running drama never fail to crack a smile while on set on Sydney’s gorgeous northern beaches, which is home to the fictional Summer Bay.
Take Georgie Parker, for example: a simple look at her Instagram will reveal that her co-stars and crew are not just her coworkers, but also her best friends.
We’ve picked up the greatest behind-the-scenes photographs from the set so far this year to commemorate the start of Home and Away’s 2022 season.

By uploading a series of group images with the boys, James Stewart gave the fans exactly what they wanted.
