Hugo Austin

Played by Bernard Curry

The outdoorsy type with the physique and tan to prove it, Hugo Austin arrived in Summer Bay, ready for a new chapter in his life running the Summer Bay Dive shop. He's charming, independent, capable and gregarious, and as a result you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who'd say a bad word about him.

Considered the black sheep of the family, he left home at sixteen and worked in many different jobs – kitchens, factories, on a prawn trawler, driving trucks…and some shadier occupations which meant he had to grow up fast and fend for himself; he’s counted himself lucky to have made it out alive on more than a few occasions…

But when he began diving, his love of the sea took hold and with it a passionate interest in conservation, which has seen him working on the Barrier Reef running a dive centre, teaching tourists about conserving the reef, a few stints with Greenpeace in the Antarctic, and now… to Summer Bay.

He came for Jack's funeral and has now decided to call Summer Bay home.
