Alfred James "Alf" Stewart is a fictional character from the Australian Channel Seven soap opera Home and Away, played by Ray Meagher. The character debuted on-screen during the serial's pilot episode on 17 January 1988. Meagher is the only remaining original cast member still present.

Meagher was cast in the role of Alf after appearing as a supporting character in numerous roles. He was one of only eight older actors that were cast in the serial's original line up. As of 2011 he is the only remaining original cast member still present.

During flashbacks to the character's past, Alf was portrayed by Max Buckley and Robert Jago respectively.

In April 2010, it was announced Meagher was taking a break from Home and Away, so he could travel to London to star in the West End production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Meagher said "[Home and Away] have very generously allowed me to do Priscilla in the West End from September 20 roughly until early March." Meagher returned to the West End in October 2011. However, the actor, whose contract is up for renewal in 2012, said he was committed to staying in Home and Away because he still enjoyed the role of Alf.

Alf Stewart has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
