Martha Stewart, played by Belinda Giblin in 2018.

In a 1988 episode, a photo of Martha with Alf was seen.

Martha Baldivis was born in about 1949 to Jack and Sarah Baldivis. Alf Stewart first met Martha Baldivis when she was 18 and they married soon after in April 1969. They had a daughter Roo, full first name Ruth, in 1970. Roo was their only child.

In 1985 Martha was alleged to have "died", in a boating accident. Surprisingly, she returned to the Bay in 2018 and went looking for Alf and Roo. Alf tells Roo that Martha never drowned in 1985, and is out there somewhere.


Martha returned to Summer Bay and revealed to Alf that she was suffering from a personality disorder. This had led to her faking her own death. Martha being alive during Alf's marriage to Ailsa technically made him a bigamist.

Alf and Martha remarried in February 2020.
