While interior scenes for Neighbours are filmed at a Nunawading-based studio, also located in Melbourne, most of the filming is done on the fictional Ramsay Street.
Although, while the name may have changed for the show, the street is actually a real residential cul-de-sac called Pin Oak Court, located in Vermont, Melbourne.
The name Ramsay Street also pays tribute to the original character, Max Ramsay, who appeared in the show’s pilot episode back in 1985, and named the street after his grandfather.
As for the people who actually live on Pin Oak Street in real life, they allow film crews to shoot on their front lawns, which adds authenticity to the show.
Located close by to Ramsay Street on the show is Paul Robinson’s Lassiters complex, which is located on Sutherland Street by Lassiter's Lake.
Interior shots of all the houses, bars and restaurants are filmed in the studio, and there is also a purpose-built set at the studios which features all of the external buildings including Lassiters and Harold's Cafe.
Interestingly enough, Lassiter's lake is actually a real lake, built at the studios especially for filming.
While the exterior of Erinsborough Hospital is filmed at the entrance of the Neighbours production office in Nunawading, filming has also taken place at various Melbourne hospitals including the Austin Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
The Erinsborough High School uses the Blackburn English Language Centre in Burwood East and Coburg Senior High School for exterior shots.
Meanwhile, interior sets consist of a classroom, corridor and stairwell.
