Split Point Lighthouse at Aireys Inlet was the filming location for the home of the Twist family. Round the Twist is an Australian children’s fantasy television series about three children and their widowed father who live in a lighthouse and become involved in many bizarre magical adventures. The show only ran for four series despite the show having an 11-year run. The first two series were based on fantasy stories written by author Paul Jennings; the latter two were based on a variety of authors’ work. Its first series was made in 1989. A second series, with many roles re-cast, was made in 1992. A third series, again re-cast, was made in 2000, followed by a fourth (with some roles again re-cast) in 2001. The show’s distinctive theme song, with the lyrics “have you ever… ever felt like this?” was sung by Tamsin West, who played the lead female role of Linda Twist in the first series. It borrowed lines from popular nursery rhymes such as “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly”, “Humpty Dumpty” and “Rain Rain Go Away”.
