* TheFoodPoisoningIncident: All the adults except Hermes and Ms Selby eat some bad oysters in the "Follow The Leader" episode and the children are left in charge of the communications base while they puke their guts out.

* LifeImitatesArt: Babe was portrayed as wanting to become a singer when she got older. A few years later, along comes ''Australian Idol'', and who should be one of the performers but Cleonie Wootton, Babe's actress.



* RealLifeRelative: Igor Sas's (Andrew Knowles) daughter Francoise joined the cast in Season 2 as Lou's cousin Amy. [[Series/Parallax It wouldn't be the last time they worked together.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AlliterativeName: Kelvin Crump, Julie Jones, Gavin Garney, Madeleine Mabbs and Peter Puckrin.
** On the cast side, Louise Love and Monica Main. Monica gets it double: she plays Madeleine.
* AscendedExtra: Gavin originally appeared in only one episode in Season 1, when Julie and Kelvin decided to set up a holiday camp. The very next season, his family decided to move to Circe Island, resulting in him joining the main cast.
* BigBad: The Defoes during Season 2, or at least Rosalind. Victoria-Elizbeth seems to be a kid [[TheDragon dragon]].


Added DiffLines:

* GetRichQuickScheme: Kelvin seems to like these. Predictably, they rarely work.

Added DiffLines:

* NumberedSequels: While it is evidently supposed to be all the same series, the titles for each season had the season number in it, giving the impression it was a sequel to the original series. This tended to carry over to the TV guides.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Babe's real name is Bianca Keogh.
** [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her Doc]]: Louelle Docherty is called "Lou" and "Doc" in equal amounts, but this trope gets subverted as, while she is certainly a very gifted individual (contrasted by her [[DumbBlonde blonde hair]]), she's still in high school, and obviously not in possession of a doctorate of any kind. She still helps her father around the lab at ASNOT, though, when she's not helping herself.
* PrinceCharmingWannabe: Hermes Endakis loves Andrea Shelby. It wasn't mutual.
* PutOnABus: Series 3 had a massive cast upheaval, with a lot of the child cast (and a few of the adults) travelling over the bridge. Only a few are made obvious:
** Babe gets a recording contract.
** The Knowles family do a switch with the Leong family, and Andrew takes command of his base while James Leong takes on ASNOT. [[TheBusCameBack Ralph does come back in the penultimate episode]].
** Julie heads to university, [[TheBusCameBack but returns in the final episode]].
** Lou got a programmer's position in a games company.
** Andrea Shelby got a teaching position on the mainland.
** Sally was put on a bus in Series 2. This may have been for the best; [[WeHardlyKnewYou she wasn't the most rounded character]].
* RealLifeRelative: Igor Sas's (Andrew Knowles) daughter Francoise joined the cast in Season 2 as Lou's cousin Amy. [[Series/Parallax It wouldn't be the last time they worked together.]]
* [[PoliceAreUseless Security Is Useless]]: The ASNOT security team. They seem to take their job very seriously, patrolling ''the entire island'' for anyone who may be doing even the slightest bit wrong (sort of like the island's police force). They are also, unfortunately, ineffective. The Head of Security, Hermes Endakis, is especially inept.
* SoapBoxSadie: Julie. She's all about the environment and ''strongly'' dislikes the ASNOT base being on the island. She'd almost be a GranolaGirl, with her love of whale music and occasionally hippie clothing, but that's as far as it gets with her.

!!This series contains the following tropes:
* ButtMonkey: Hermes Endakis.
* CompletelyDifferentTitle: In Poland, the series was titled ''Wyspa przygód'' ("Island of Adventures.")
* CreditsMontage: The credits sequence includes a number of clips from the episode playing in a short recap of sorts.
* TheMostDangerousVideoGame: In one of the episodes, the kids played a choose-your-own-adventure video game and, on a whim, gave the player character the appearance and name of Hermes Endakis. Shortly thereafter, it turned out that whatever calamity befalls the game's hero also soon happens to the real Hermes in real life. The episode doesn't make it clear if the game really could affect reality or if it was just a series of coincidences.
* UnitConfusion: In one episode, a report (later revealed to be false) came in of a tsunami 30 feet (10 meters) high. Since some of the older islanders still used [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCustomaryMeasurements imperial units]], the confusion snowballed to the point that the wave was supposedly 900 meters (3000 feet) high, and the islanders prepared for Armageddon.
