The Neighbours tour was very exciting. The guide was very enthusiastic (although very knowledgeable with random Neighbours facts) and it was all slightly cheesy but I think that's the best way to do it. We went to the old school first (apparently they moved schools because they needed to get the parents permission to film there and they asked for payment - the new schools actually a college so they don't need the parents permission). I didn't really recognise it much which was rather disappointing.
We then went to the studios and saw some of the old outside sets such as Grease Monkeys and Carpenters Mechanics. We also met Kate Robinson, who I was very pleased I recognised although probably wouldn't have known her characters name without being told! she was very friendly and *spoiler alert* she is apparently now kissing someone new.
We then went on to Ramsey Street which is clearly the highlight. I recognised all the houses although some were more recognisable than others. We spent a little while here mostly posing for photos with a couple of Ramsey Street signs.
We then went and picked up the campervan and boarded
the ship for Tasmania. The trip over was alright, and went to bed quite early as we were tired due to a couple of nights bad sleep in the campervan (which is quite drafty). We got a fairly good nights sleep on the boat though we did hit some rough sea in the night which woke us up for a while.
