Morley began his career by acting in various university theatre productions, short films and plays and his first credited appearance came in the 2005 low-budget horror film Dead Harvest, which was directed by Damian Scott. That same year he was cast in the Australian soap Home and Away, after casting directors were impressed by his previous performances. Morley joined the cast of Home and Away as Drew Curtis in 2006 and was nominated for the Most Popular New Male Talent at the Logie Awards.
From May 2007 he appeared in the second series of the Australian celebrity singing competition series It Takes Two but on 12 June 2007, he was voted off after six weeks on the show – even though he received his highest score that night.
In 2008, Morley left Home and Away and was cast as Tony Moretti in Nine Network’s 2008 action drama series The Strip. The series was cancelled due to low ratings and did not return for a second series. He then went on to appear in Nine Network’s 2008 television film Scorched.
In 2009, he starred as Lorca in the play Palindrome for a Dead Poet. The following year, Morley featured in season four of Sea Patrol in the 5th episode titled “Paradise Lost”. In 2011, he starred in the Australian thriller Road Train, also known as Road Kill in North America, directed by Dean Francis. Morley joined the cast of Neighbours in June 2011 as Aidan Foster, a love interest for Chris Pappas (James Mason). Morley and Mason’s characters formed the show’s first gay couple. Morley took a ten-week break from the soap to appear in Blinder, a feature film about Australian rules football before returning to the set of Neighbours in June 2012.
On 21 February 2013, Philiana Ng and Lesley Goldberg from The Hollywood Reporter announced that Morley had been cast as Bellamy in The CW’s The 100. Morley also began filming a role for the drama “The White City” in June 2013, which was scheduled for a 2014 release date.
On August 2, 2016, Bob appeared on season 5 episode 7 of Winners & Losers. He guest-starred as Ethan Quinn.
