Biography

First introduced to Summer Bay as the strict stepfather to troubled teen Trey Palmer, John Palmer has had his hand in a number of the town's prized pies: a member of the surf lifesaving club, he was first elected to the local council and then bought the gym.

John's marriage to Jenena failed to survive the strain of Trey's very public breakdown, and when he returned to the Bay after some time away he was ready to make a fresh start. Following a brief fling wtih Romeo's mum Jill, John began a relationship with Gina, whom after one unsuccessful proposal he later went on to marry.
