PETA Farewells ‘Neighbours’: ‘That’s a Vegan Wrap!’

Posted on by PETA Australia

As iconic soap Neighbours wraps after 37 drama-filled years, we delivered a different kind of wrap – a platter of delicious planet-friendly vegan ones – to the final day of filming on the iconic Ramsay Street (Pin Oak Ct in real life!) in the fictional Victorian suburb of Erinsborough.

When Good Neighbours Become Good Friends to Animals

Neighbours stars and guest stars have, over the years, fronted numerous campaigns for PETA entities around the world.

Imogen Bailey, who played Nicola West on the show, joined PETA UK for a saucy ad in which she spoke out against bull riding, while songbird Natalie Imbruglia (Beth Brennan) posed with a rabbit to remind people that all fur is the product of extreme cruelty.

Other Neighbours stars and guest stars who have spoken up for animals include Tottie Goldsmith, who posed for PETA Asia for a sterilisation campaign, and British comedian Julian Cleary. Cleary made a cameo on the soap during its visit to London and stripped off for a PETA UK campaign against the Ministry of Defence’s continued use of bear fur for the Queen’s Guard’s caps.
