Tour Australia via Chris Hemsworth’s Instagram
WHO BETTER to take you on a tour of the land Down Under than Australian actor and Marvel heartthrob, Chris Hemsworth?
The Thor star has been zipping back and forth between Hollywood and Australia, wielding the Mjolnir for his Avengers: Infinity War promotional activities and then swopping that for a wetsuit on a surf holiday in his homeland with his adorable family.
“Growing up in Australia, you can sometimes take it all for granted. But after being away for ten years and coming back, exploring some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen has reminded me how unique and impressive Australia is, and how lucky we are,” Chris Hemsworth said.
From the red sands of the Outback through rugged mountains to serene white beaches and tropical waters, the actor dished out everything that he loves about his home country on his Instagram.
With his 18 million followers, he shared exciting snaps and clips of hanging out in a sprawling vineyard, cuddling koalas, and swimming with dolphins.
Hemsworth also dropped a bunch of personal photos of himself enjoying quality time with his family against iconic Australian backdrops such as Uluru (or Ayers Rock), the Kimberley, the Whitsundays and The Great Barrier Reef.
In speaking about The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living thing on Earth, Hemsworth said, “The Great Barrier Reef is one of those places you must visit, whether you love the water or just want to see one of the great wonders of the world.”
“We stayed at Hayman Island which was a real highlight… We had an afternoon on Whitehaven Beach which was absolutely stunning. It was the whitest sand and crystal clean water that I’d ever seen, and the Whitsundays is the perfect spot to just unwind and relax.”
It goes without saying that his trips to some of Australia’s best beaches, such as Tallow Beach at Byron Bay and Snapper Rocks at Gold Coast, mean there’s plenty of Hemsworth and his godlike beach bod to show.
Not that his fans are complaining, of course. After all, he is Thor.
He is also as Australian as they come.
In speaking about how he does beach vacations back home, Hemsworth said, “I’d take a 4×4, fill it with food, fishing rods, diving gear, a tent and surfboards and take off exploring. I prefer to not have a huge plan and just take it as it comes.”
Clearly, you can take the man out of Australia but you can’t take the Australian out of the man.
Chris Hemsworth is the official global celebrity ambassador for Tourism Australia.
