Matt MitchamPlayed by Peter Mullan

Matt Mitcham is the father of Tui and Johnno. Known around town for being narcissistic, violent and controlling, he is capable of both a rough-hewn charm and horrific flashes of rage. Matt lives by his own rules and is enmeshed in self-pity and a twisted sense of entitlement. Abrasive and wiley, he exudes a constant sense of menace. He has a deep bond with the land called Paradise, and with his late mother, who is buried there.
