Charlie makes friends with Mickey Gannon (Fletcher O'Leary) and Callum Jones (Morgan Baker). Ty Harper (Dean Geyer) helps them form a band and when he departs, the band sing to him.

Ruth Deller of television website, Lowculture, called Cameron "an all-round nice guy (who was bumped off by Max Hoyland, as if we didn't have enough reason to hate that bloke)."[4]

Cameron grew up in Tasmania with Gail (Fiona Corke), his sister Elle (Pippa Black) and identical twin, Robert (Adam Hunter). Cameron developed a close bond with Elle and they made up nicknames Robert and kept journals about him.

Robert then steals Cameron's identity and goes to Erinsborough to carry out a revenge plan against his father. Cameron wakes from his coma and is unable to understand how he had lost two months of his life. He hides when he hears someone coming and when Robert comes into the room, Cameron knocks him out and steals his clothes. He goes to Ramsay Street and he is arrested for all of Robert's crimes, including planting a bomb in Elle's car and killing three of Paul's neighbours.

Robert pretends to wake from his coma and convinces Paul and Gail that Cameron is the real psycho. The family visit Cameron in jail and he tries to tell them that he had been set up, but they refuse to believe him. Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney) is assigned to the case, despite not believing in Cameron's innocence. The police find a shed, set up by Robert, containing diaries and plans in Cameron's name.

Robert Robinson, played by Adam Hunter, made his first on-screen appearance on 28 March 2006. Robert is one of three children born to Paul Robinson and Gail Lewis.[5]

Ruth Deller of television website Lowculture, praised Robert, calling him the "best psycho the street had seen since, well, Michael Martin."[4] She added "[He] ran off, hopefully to return and wreak havoc in the future."[4] In late 2007, Deller called for the return of Robert, saying "RobRob [..] must return soon to cause havoc. Particularly if that havoc involves clearing out the cast of some deadwood as it did last time round. Good times."[6] The Daily Mirror named Robert one of the "Top ten most evil soap villains".[7] They said "Behind the chiselled good looks of businessman Paul Robinson's son, lurked the mind of a psycho – one who went to increasingly twisted lengths to slaughter the good people of Erinsborough."[7]

Robert is resentful towards his father for being absent and becomes withdrawn as he grows up. His sister Elle (Pippa Black) and identical twin, Cameron (Adam Hunter) gang up on him and keep him away from their friendship circles. Robert hatches a plan to destroy his father and everyone close to him. The first part of the plan saw him plant a bomb on a plane, which Paul, Elle and other residents use for a joy flight to Tasmania. The plane explodes and kills three of Paul's neighbours. Robert causes a car accident, which leaves Cameron in a coma and Robert goes to Erinsborough as Cameron. Robert decides to target Dylan Timmins (Damien Bodie) and makes sure Paul is left doubting whether Dylan could be trusted. Robert causes some shelves to fall on Elle and Paul sacks Dylan. Robert then turns his attentions to Paul's girlfriend, Izzy Hoyland (Natalie Bassingthwaighte). When she is babysitting her nephew, Robert turns the gas on, causing Izzy to pass out. Izzy is saved by Lyn Scully (Janet Andrewartha) and Robert's plan fails.

Robert gets a job at Erinsborough Hospital and meets Katya Kinski (Dichen Lachman). He struggles as he has had little experience with women, when he and Katya grow close. Robert tells Cameron that he did not think about falling in love and he would have to get rid of her. Robert takes Katya for a picnic, but he saves her when she falls over cliff, as does not want her to go. Robert later murders a businessman that Katya, Paul and Izzy knew. Robert flirts with Izzy and records several conversations with her. He patches them together and makes it sound like Izzy had flirted with him. Paul throws Izzy out and Robert breaks up with Katya. Robert plants a bomb in Elle's car and goes to see Cameron, who wakes up and hits him. Paul and Izzy work out who is behind all of the events and they call Elle, who escapes her car. Cameron is arrested for Robert's crimes and Robert pretends he is the one in the coma. Gail (Fiona Corke) then returns to Erinsborough and when Robert sees Paul and Gail kissing, he tells Gail not to get back with Paul.

Robert takes Paul camping and ties him up in a mineshaft. Robert makes the mine shaft collapse on Paul and he heads to Ramsay Street. He kidnaps Katya and drugs her and ties her up in the back of a camper van. Robert hears that Paul and Gail are getting married and goes to stop the wedding. Robert arrives and shoots Paul, but he is caught by the police. Robert realises that Paul had been wearing a bulletproof vest. Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney) visits him, trying to find out what had happened to Connor O'Neill (Patrick Harvey). Robert hides from the staff at the prison, leading them to believe that he had escaped. This leads to Max Hoyland (Stephen Lovatt) killing Cameron by mistake. A few months later, Robert goes to Max's trial and Toadie proves that Robert is still dangerous, when he makes him think he is with Katya. Robert snaps and threatens to make Paul pay.

When Mishka does not turn up at the airport, Lou is convinced that she had seen him and run away. However, Mishka turns up at the house and they both realised that they had lied about their ages. Mishka explains that she had gone to a beauty parlour in Singapore and missed her flight, so she had to get another. Mishka settles in and tells Lou and Harold that she had always dreamed of living in Australia and seeing Shane Warne. Lou takes her to the Zoo and she gives cooks for the household and gives Sky advice. Lou tells Mishka that his business, The General Store, was stolen away from him by Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis).

Mishka tells Lou that her husband is a political prisoner and she had to get a fake passport in order to leave Russia, so she is an illegal immigrant.

Mishka settles into the community and becomes a regular at the Russian club. She and Lou begin brewing their own vodka, but after Harold finds out, he tells them to move out. Mishka comes up with a plan to stay, where her friend, Mikhail Irtenev (Christopher Billy), would break in and Lou would catch him and save the day. The plan works, but Mikhail turns up apologising for being late. Mishka and Lou realise that he must have fended off a real burglar. Sky starts complaining about stomach pains and at the hospital, she is told that she is pregnant. Lou and Mishka promise to help her and Mishka goes with Sky to have an abortion. However, Sky changes her mind. Harold lets Mishka and Lou stay and tells them to donate their vodka profits to charity. Mishka is excited when Shane Warne comes to Erinsborough to collect the money. Two men from the Russian Embassy arrive and Mishka is told that she could stay in the country if she went with them to sign some papers. Mishka does not return as she has been kidnapped.

Lou flies to Moscow and Mishka tells him to go home. She pushes him down the stairs to save him from her husband, who had been freed. Lou does not remember much of his trip and he tries to move on from Mishka. However, Mishka turns up after geetting a job with a Russian airline and they get back together. Mishka discovers that the airline is cutting the Moscow-Melbourne route and Mishka applies for residency in Australia. They have to convince the officials that they had been a couple for more than two years and invent a back story. However, they decide to be honest and it works, until Mishka tries to give the officer a bribe. Mishka is then taken away and sent back to Russia.

When she was ten, Anne lost her sight to an illness. She struggled to have a relationship with her parents as she felt they could not adapt to having a disabled daughter. Anne overhears her parents talking about Bree Timmins (Sianoa Smit-McPhee) and an ad that she had placed in the paper asking for information on her birth parents. Anne finds out that Bree lives in Erinsborough and was a published author, so she goes to her reading in the park. Anne tells Bree that she is her biggest fan and when people starts to walk out of the reading, Anne defends her.

Anne explains that it is her way of recording a diary.

Anne tries to steal Bree's boyfriend, Zeke Kinski (Matthew Werkmeister). She grows close to Zeke and Bree becomes uncomfortable. Anne joins Erinsborough High, claiming that she wants to be closer to her new friends. Anne blurts out that Bree had been intercepting letters containing money from her absent father in front of Janelle. Her plan to split Bree and Janelle up fails and Bree stops speaking to her. Zeke takes Anne to the formal instead of Bree, and she tells him that she has not been kissed before. Zeke kisses her and Bree ends their relationship. Janelle tells her that stealing a man from a Timmins girl is the worst betrayal of all. Anne then reveals that Janelle is her birth mother. Anne begs Janelle not to get in touch with her parents as they would take her away. Bree announces that she wants to meet her real parents and Anne agrees to go home and speak to them. Bree and Janelle go to the house and find it abandoned. Bree calls Anne, who tells her that she and her parents were on their way to the airport. Loris Timmins (Kate Fitzpatrick) joins in the search because she swapped Anne and Bree at birth.

Loris helps Anne fly down to Melbourne to visit the Timmins family. Soon after, Greg Baxter (Christopher Connelly) turns up determined to take Anne home. Bree and Greg discover that they have a lot in common and Greg admits that he wants to get to know Bree properly.

In 2006, it was announced that former All Saints actor Fletcher Humphreys had joined the cast as a character named Guy.[13] Guy is arrested after holding Katya Kinski (Dichen Lachman), Stephanie Scully (Carla Bonner), Charlie Hoyland (Aaron Aulsebrook-Walker), Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney) and Zeke Kinski (Matthew Werkmeister) hostage.[14] In 2009, Guy gets out of prison and comes back to Erinsborough to get the money that Katya stole for him.[15] The Daily Record said that most viewers had thought that Guy's arrest was the end of him and they added, "After all, wouldn't the authorities lock him up and throw away the key? Seemingly not."[14] Guy tells Zeke that he wants the money and Zeke tries to find enough money to pay him off. Toadie also becomes aware that Guy is back and the police become involved.[14] They and Zeke set a trap for Guy, but journalist, Elle Robinson (Pippa Black), attempts to get a story and Guy realises what is going on and leaves.[14] Guy later breaks into Toadie's home to find the money and holds Toadie and Callum Jones (Morgan Baker) hostage.[15] Holy Soap said "Libby and Dan reckon something must be up and call the police, but after a bungled search they leave none-the-wiser. Callum and The Toad have to save themselves."[15]

Katya is shocked when Guy arrives in town with DVD footage of her committing crimes. Guy tells her that he has a kidney problem and needs $10,000 for private medical care. When Katya offers him $200, he blackmails her with the DVD and she agrees to steal one car to get the money for him. Guy continues to blackmail her and she steals another car, she also spots a wanted poster for him and warns him that she will go to the police. Guy does not believe her and then demands another $10,000.

Katya calls Guy and lies that she has the money for him and they need to meet. Katya pulls out a gun, but Guy fights her and Katya is shot. Guy visits her at the hospital and tries to find out where she had hidden money. Guy digs up the allotments, but still does not find the money. Zeke Kinski hears Guy threatening Katya and Guy threatens him, just as Katya wakes up. She shocks Guy in the back with a defibrillator pad and Guy disappears. Guy comes back and holds Katya, Zeke, Toadfish Rebecchi, Stephanie Scully and Charlie Hoyland hostage with a gun. Zeke hits Guy and knocks him to the ground and as everyone leaves, Guy grabs his gun and shoots Toadie in the back. Guy is arrested and imprisoned.

Guy is paroled and he reads a news story about a bag of money found in the community gardens. Guy finds Zeke and demands to know where Katya and the money are. Guy tells Zeke that he has twenty-four hours to come up with the money, he also finds Toadie and his foster son Callum and demands money from them.

Kerry Mangel, played by Claudine Henningsen, is the daughter of Sky Mangel and Dylan Timmins. She made her first appearance on 31 October 2006.

Claudine Henningsen joined Neighbours when she was seven days old.[17] Her father Warren Henningsen said that the Neighbours team were looking for a baby young enough to play a newborn.[17] He added "Claudine was two weeks premature and she started on the show just seven days after she was born. She is the most convincing actor I have ever seen."[17] In 2007, it was announced that Henningsen and her on-screen mother Stephanie McIntosh were to leave the show.[17] Henningsen's father said the Neighbours team had really looked after his daughter and it was sad to be leaving.[17]

During her pregnancy Sky is admitted to the hospital after collapsing because she was not eating properly. She is also living with the secret that the baby's father may be Dylan's brother, Stingray (Ben Nicholas). Sky's roommate Teresa Cammeniti (Hannah Greenwood) sees her baby as a replacement for the one she lost. Sky goes into premature labour after leaving the hospital to find Dylan and she gives birth to a girl, who she names Kerry after her mother. A fire is started in the hospital and Sky and Kerry are moved from their wing. When Sky goes into her new room, she finds Kerry cot empty. Kerry's baby bracelet is found in Stingray's pocket, after he is discovered passed out in a bush. It is later revealed that Dylan had found Kerry in Stingray's arms and had taken her to a hotel room. Elle Robinson (Pippa Black) found them and took Kerry to Ramsay Street. After a DNA test, it is discovered that Dylan is Kerry's father.

Glenn Forrest, played by Cleopatra Coleman, made her first on-screen appearance on 14 November 2006. Glenn had an affair with the married Boyd Hoyland and forced him to choose between her or his wife.

Coleman enjoyed playing the role of Glenn and said she would like a return to the show.[18] Her most memorable moment was when she filmed the drowning scene as she had to jump in the Yarra River.[18] Glenn was described by TV Week as someone who was going to "cause some serious heartbreak for poor old Janae".[19] They also added that although she is a friend of the "devious" Elle Robinson (Pippa Black), viewers should not expect Glenn to be the same. Coleman said "She's pretty much a nice Tassie girl".[19]

When Boyd Hoyland (Kyal Marsh) returns to Erinsborough after going to look for his father, he tells his wife, Janae (Eliza Taylor-Cotter), that he saved a young woman, Glenn, from drowning in a river and they had a one-night stand. Janae is devastated and she discovers that Glenn is an old friend of Elle Robinson's. Elle tells her that Glenn is coming to stay and Janae begs Elle to ask her not to come. After breaking up with Janae's brother Dylan (Damien Bodie), a vengeful Elle tells Glenn to come to town. Glenn leaves her car at the garage where Janae works. Glenn realises that Janae is Boyd's wife and she assures her that she would not cause trouble. However, when Glenn learns that Boyd still has feelings for her, she pushes him to make a choice between her and Janae before she leaves. Boyd then tells Janae that he might be in love with Glenn. Glenn asks Janae about her car and Janae tells her that it is ready. Janae tells Glenn that she can go now and Glenn tells her to drop the attitude as she loves Boyd and knows Boyd loves her too. Glenn talk to Elle and Elle tells her to give Boyd a lift when they see him walking home. Boyd accepts Glenn's offer and during the journey the brakes stop working and Glenn hits her head and falls unconscious. She is taken to the hospital and Boyd tells her that he wants to be with her.

Everyone believes that Janae is behind the incident with the car, but it is revealed that Lolly Allen (Adelaide Kane), sabotaged the brakes believing the car belonged to her abusive stepmother. Boyd later tells Janae that he and Glenn are together. Glenn believes that she is pregnant and when she goes to the hospital, she meets Janae, who also thinks she is pregnant. Glenn and Janae find out that they are not pregnant and Glenn and Boyd go to Tasmania to meet Glenn's parents.
