Chris and Liam’s eldest brother Luke Hemsworth, 38, also recently relocated home to Australia after almost a decade of being based in Los Angeles. 

He moved his family to a nearby residence in New South Wales over fears of how his children would grow up in America.  

Luke and wife Samantha have been married for 12 years and together share four children: daughters Holly, 11, Ella, 10, and eight-year-old Harper Rose, as well as seven-year-old son Alexandre.

The Westworld star was not at the outing with his famous siblings.  

While Sydney beaches, including Bondi Beach, were closed in March to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus, Byron Bay’s beaches remained open to locals.  

The Hemsworth brothers chose a quiet strip of the coastal area to surf, and were joined by Chris’ longtime friend Luke Zocchi.

Luke is a personal trainer and also runs sessions on Chris’ Centr fitness app.

While Chris and Spanish actress wife Elsa Pataky have plenty of room to put up Liam and Gabriella in their mega-mansion, the couple may be staying closer to the beach.

The Hollywood couple also own a separate residence in Suffolk Park – a 10-minute drive from their $20 million Broken Head home. 

Liam and the brothers’ parents, Leonie and Craig, have reportedly stayed at the Suffolk Park residence while visiting the Thor star in Byron Bay.

Chris, wife Elsa, and their three children, relocated from Los Angeles to Byron Bay, on the New South Wales coast of Australia, in 2014. 

In January, after six years of living in Byron Bay, Elsa told Vogue Australia she felt ‘privileged’ to enjoy such a beautiful life.
