Echo Point was an Australian television soap opera produced by Southern Star Group for Network Ten on 1 June 1995 until 1 December 1995.

The series was devised as an attempt by the Ten Network to rival the opposition soap Home and Away on the Seven Network. The series focused on several families and teenagers in a coastal community, and a key on-going storyline concerned renewed interest in a long-unsolved local murder mystery.


Echo Point originally aired at 7:00pm weeknights (scheduled against Home and Away and Sale of the Century) to low ratings and the series was cancelled after a little over 100 episodes had been produced. The final episodes were aired in a late night 11.30pm slot.


The only two ITV stations purchased the series in the UK. Grampian Television started screening the series from 1 September 1997 as a replacement from Paradise Beach, shown Monday to Wednesday. Central Television screened the series Tuesday to Thursday at 13:15-13:45 from August 1998 and completed the series in June 1999.

New Zealand[edit]

TV3 in New Zealand picked up the series for just a few weeks in 1996 but then later cancelled, the show which featured former Shortland Street actor Martin Henderson.
