Bridie shared news she was joining the Aussie soap with an Instagram post back in August.
The 49-year-old actress shared a windswept selfie on the grounds of Sydney's Centennial park, writing: "Getting blown away in beautiful Centennial Park in Sydney. Very happy to be joining the team/family on one of Australia's longest running shows - @homeandaway."
She added: "Very, very grateful in these strange times to be invited into the family fold. After filming today, I sought solace in nature at one of the city's most beautiful green spaces - not being on the farm, I need that! Very grateful for this wonderful public park. More pics and updates to come. Much love, Bridie."
