played by Daniel Collopy
Born into a high-society family (his father is a business tycoon), Josh West is about as laid-back as they come. Which is probably why he and his mates have breezed in to Summer Bay for schoolie’s week – to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and catch a few waves.
Josh has just finished his HSC and is preparing to go to university to study law. In the meantime, he's working full time as Summer Bay's lifeguard.
While he enjoys learning and broadening his mind, his one true passion is the ocean. Josh’s love of the surf led him to undertake lifeguard training. So it looks like the Summer Bay lifestyle would suit this stranger to a T!
Tall, dark and handsome, Josh has never had a problem with getting the girls, but the one girl who's well and truly captured his heart is one Dani Sutherland. While their relationship certainly has its ups and downs, Dani and Josh are truly Summer Bay's star-crossed lovers.
