A long-running Australian half-hour daily soap opera. Originally aired on the Seven Network in Australia in 1985, it was shifted to the Ten Network early in its run and has remained popular with its core teenage audience ever since.

The soap follows the daily lives of several families who live in Ramsay Street, Erinsborough, including the usual soap events of births, deaths, and marriages. The show features a regular turnover of attractive young actors mixed in with the more stable cast of older people. Though it is not commonly mentioned so as to not alienate viewers in other Australian cities, Erinsborough is undoubtedly supposed to be a suburb of Melbourne. The show is filmed in Melbourne, and for street scenes uses a street in Nunawading, a suburb in eastern Melbourne.

Many successful Australian actors and singers had some of their earliest work on Neighbours, including Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, and Natalie Imbruglia.

The show is also popular in the United Kingdom, and has been sold to networks in many countries.
