Neither of us have watched Neighbours in 15-20 years, but as a child I had really wanted to visit Ramsay Street, or as I now know it, Pin Oak Court, so I booked for us to go on the tour while we were in Melbourne.
We had booked the tour with ‘star’ experience. I had feared that we’d be meeting someone who was currently in the show, but we got to meet the actor who played Stingray, who was really pleasant and continues to be involved in the show, albeit behind the camera.
Our guide, Chris, was a really lovely guy and a very good driver. He not only took us to meet the actor and to Pin Oak Court, but we also got to visit the studios just up the road. While we didn’t visit the Lassiters set, we got to see a few different bits that feature in the show, but aren’t in Pin Oak Court. Chris’ insights were really interesting and certainly made the tour more than just a trip out to look at some houses in a Melbourne suburb.More
