Quite frankly, if you don't know Alf Stewart, then you must have grown up cloth-eared and wearing blinkers.
Summer Bay born and bred, Alf's the kind of guy you don't want to upset - you'd sooner tell his half-sister Colleen your deepest, darkest secret than risk rubbing him up the wrong way - but deep down he's a big softie, and his bark is far worse than his flamin' bite.
A keen businessman, Alf is quite the entrepreneur, with fingers in the veritable Summer Bay pies that are Noah's Bar, the Blaxland and the bait shop.
Always willing to lend a hand, Alf is also an active member of the voluntary rescue service - which is convenient when you happen to live in a town that's prone to all manner of disasters.
