Continuing from the other post, this was the second of three legs of the Official Neighbours Tour that I went on in Melbourne last month.
Driving into the Studios, we parked at the backlot and were guided around the exterior sets (because the studio itself was closed on Sundays - I'm not sure if the tours on other days go into the studios though).
I would have liked to go onto the "interior" sets as well, but this was good enough for me.
The Lassiters complex.
The corner store.
The main courtyard, which used to be a pond.
Inside the Lassiters foyer.
The old walkway bridge from when the main courtyard was a pond (about 10 years ago - not sure why they are keeping it).
The Nursery (must be something "new", as it wasn't in the show when I last watched it... many years ago)
A generic bus stop, that they use fairly often.
The Garage/Workshop that Charlene made famous with her overalls and grease...
Some landscaping business (like the Nursery, it's new since I last watched the show).
The Eden University (for when each generation grew up and left Erinsborough High School).
It's actually on the other side of the Lassiters building - so one side is a hotel, the other side is a Uni Building.
A stairway set, often used (on the inside) in scenes when people would cross paths inside a "multi storey" building.
After they couldn't film at an actual school (see part one posting), the studio painted "Erinsborough High" labelling on a doorway on the exterior of their own building.
Inside those doors. (a school hallway used for filming)
Another set of "school" doors.
And inside those doors, another school hallway.
And then we hopped onto the bus and drove to the street itself - Ramsey Street.
But that's covered in the other post.
