For most of his adult life Patrick has been an adrenaline junkie, more at home climbing a Himalayan glacier than working as a farm hand. Patrick first came to our world to visit his elder brother, vet Dave Brewer. It was a brief but dramatic few days, during which he learnt of his father's suicide 20-odd years earlier and managed to break Kate's heart.
A year later he returned and accepted Dave's invitation to build a new life for himself on the land. It wasn't an easy path to tread; Patrick has had to confront his own fears and insecurities over losing his independence, as well as make his peace with Kate. After almost losing his eyesight in a farm accident, Patrick rekindled his love of photography. With Kate's help, he turned his hobby into a part-time job. Kate helped tame Patrick's more irresponsible side, even helping him secure a job at the truck stop after he was sacked from Killarney.
Patrick fell heavily for Kate. He was devastated to realise that her heart belonged to Dave. However, Patrick accepted that he and Kate weren't right for each other and when Kate and Dave left for Africa it was with his blessing.
Patrick is irrepressible, enthusiastic and eager to learn. Quick with a joke, and always the life and soul of the party, Patrick also has a serious side. He's incredibly loyal and supportive, and will do anything for his friends even if it gets him into trouble (which it often does). Patrick hasn't quite found his niche in life yet, or the perfect women. But, somehow, he knows he's in the right place to find both.

"I play Patrick Brewer the brother of local vet, Dave Brewer. It is a great role Patrick is an adventure-seeking and fun-loving type of guy who loves living life to the extreme" says Jacobz.
"Patrick is the type of guy who doesn't hang around anywhere for long his wild, adventure-seeking side keeps him on the move, looking for his next big thrill. After an accident that leaves him temporarily blinded, he realises that having people around and belonging somewhere might not be such a bad thing and takes a job at Killarney and that's where the fun starts!"
