Gaining Australia’s love for just being herself has been the highlight of this Home and Away star’s year.

‘I definitely feel different to last year,’ she says. ‘Like I have nothing to hide since the speech last year [at the Logies]. I feel like people know me more and I’m no longer just Brax’s missus”.’


While she shared an on-screen relationship with hunky Steve Peacocke, Bonnie says it’s been much tougher to navigate a new relationship with boyfriend Nathan Gooley in the public eye this year.

‘I think in any relationship there are different factors that make it tricky to get to know each other in those first few stages,’ she tells OK!.

‘And being followed in my private life is a whole different story; Nath’s coped really well with it.’  

Bonnie, 26, says her beau of eight months is ‘a pretty amazing man’ and she is looking forward to taking him home to Tasmania at Christmas.

‘He is looking forward to it and Dad’s home brew,’ she smiles, before breaking into that trademark laugh.

As she looks to 2016, Bonnie says her mantra continues to be ‘be yourself and speak from our heart’.
