I met Alan in Sydney in 1983....this guy is tall, was tall back then...at least 6ft 2...so my guess is 6ft 3 peak.

Out of bed: 6ft2¼(188.6cm)
Before bed: 6ft1½(186.7cm)
Seems like a fairer range for his peak. Could pull off 6ft2 at times on Neighbours

He looked tall on Neighbours, but it wasn't his peak then...he almost hit 40 when the show first aired. I watched The Young Doctors and Radio Waves (his first TV breakthrough) and honestly he looked even taller. My guess is 6ft3 peak and 6ft1 current height. His wife was a model and Miss Australia '86, she was listed 5ft10 and btw he appeared at least 4-5 inches taller than her.

Rob, he gets described as 6'1 on his imdbresume: Click Here
If he really was around 6'1 at peak, that sounds an honest claim!
Editor Rob: he's certainly shrunk a bit by age 70, whether it is representing current or past I don't know - on his aussie/nz agency he's always been 188/6ft 2.

Showing my age but I remember this guy looking 6'2'' on Neighbours as someone has already commented.

He was 186-187cm in the 70's-80's. One of the tallest on Neighbours and The Doctors. I thought 188cm at first but maybe that's a bit of a stretch. Today does look at have lost height. He was similar to David Duchovny on Californication, maybe a hair taller. At 70 it's believable that he's done a full inch at least but under 6ft? I don't see it.

Always got a tall vibe from this guy but his height seems to vary quite a bit, Click Here
here and Click Here
he looks shorter than weak 6 footer Mark Harmon, yet here Click Here
he holds up well with Jim. He has great posture a lot of the time as benefitting his roles of power and aloofness.

Looked near 6ft2 on Neighbours. I think 187cm peak is better than 186cm. Today he looks closer to 6ft/

So you think he looked 2 inches taller than Henry? I'll try to rewatch a few scenes but from what I remember he looked just a bit taller than him (as you can see in that screen)...
Editor Rob: he could have been 1.5 inches taller there, may be at most 6ft today depending on loss, I'd assume about an inch by 70 for Alan.

Umm I guess peak 6"1
Now he's a strong 6'0
TBH rob if I ever found this page I would of assumed he was 5'10 to 6'0 without second thought.

I do remember this guy from Lost where he certainly didn't look anywhere near his 6'2 listings...
With Henry: Click Here
Did he really look near 2 inches taller than him?
Editor Rob: back in the 80's he did look more 6ft 1 range, but by the time of Lost, maybe he had lost at least half inch or so.

Oh, no! 😳 I remember him from 'Neighbours' back in the 80's, when I watched the Australian soap with my Mum! Many a time, I would have already walked for at least 2 hours in order to get to my Mum's! I had a fast-paced lifestyle those days and the natural high was unbeatable!
I recall Jim Robinson as a tall fellow, as it was habitual to compare the actors to Kylie Minogue! I think that was the way for many people who were youngsters in the 80's, and used Ms Minogue as a measuring stick because their interest in height was on the up and up!
Alan was in excess of 6ft1? I would say "Sure, he was! Now he still looks 6ft plus! Peak for him? 6ft1 and a quarter and an inch less for today's height!"
