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. The series was then shifted to the 6.00pm timeslot but was cancelled after 130 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 for Paradise Beach, shown Monday to Wednesday at 17:10–17:40, until early August 1998 when the remaining 20 episodes were broadcast at 10.30am each weekday. Central Television screened the series Tuesday to Thursday at 13:15–13:45 as the replacement for A Country Practice from 4 August 1998 and completed the series in June 1999.
