Home and Away
In June 1987, whilst at university, Dickson auditioned for the role of Bobby Simpson for upcoming soap opera, Home and Away. Her first episode was broadcast on 17 January 1988. She won the "most popular new talent" award at the 1989 Logie Awards, being the first woman to do so in nearly a decade. Dickson left Home and Away in 1993.
In 1995, Dickson returned to Home and Away and filmed an episode of GP, in which she played a violent young woman with learning difficulties. She filmed a guest appearance in Murder Call, in which she played a murdered reporter named Maddie Herman. Dickson then made a guest role in medical drama All Saints in April 2002 as difficult pregnant patient Penny.
In 2006, Dickson appeared on a Home and Away reunion for the flashback show, Where Are They Now. In the same year, she appeared on Channel 7's Australian Celebrity Survivor, filmed in Vanuatu, becoming the fourth last contestant voted out.
