Chris Hemsworth was spending a day strolling through his home town of Byron Bay while barefoot on Thursday.
The Marvel action star, 40, sported a laidback casual look in a loose t-shirt and shorts as he visited local shops with his son Tristan.
The father-of-three kept a low profile in a cap and sunglasses as he walked alongside his nine-year-old son who was also barefoot.
The pair were seen walking under the sun on the sizzling concrete before stopping at a local store.
Chris was every inch the doting dad as he held his young son’s hand during the walk.

The sighting comes after Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky recently quashed rumours they are ‘growing apart’.
The couple proved all is well in paradise last week as they were pictured heading back from a surfing session at the beach with their twin sons Sasha and Tristan and daughter India, 11, in Byron Bay.
The pair, who have been married for more than 10 years, recently set tongues wagging that not all was well in paradise after they went on separate holidays.
A source close to the pair told In Touch magazine that despite maintaining a united front for their family and spending Christmas together, the duo have been growing apart for some time.
‘The status of Chris and Elsa’s marriage is a question mark,’ a source told the publication.

‘The separate vacations are a huge red flag, but it’s more than that. They’re still very much a united family, but they’ve drifted apart as a couple.’
The source claimed Chris wants to live a ‘simpler life’ but ‘Elsa wants more’.
‘They were the perfect husband-and-wife team for so long – both gorgeous, beautiful kids. Everything seemed picture-perfect. But things have definitely changed,’ they added.
The couple spent a significant amount of time holidaying separately last year, prompting fans to question if all is well in paradise.
Since fans raised their concerns, Chris and Elsa have well and truly poured cold water over the speculation, sharing several photos of themselves looking very happy during family holidays in Fiji and at the snow over the holidays.

The chatter first began when Elsa and the couple’s children put up the family Christmas tree at their Byron Bay mansion without Chris.
‘Haven’t seen you and Chris together in a while. Hope all is good,’ one follower commented underneath photos the Spanish star posted of the Hemsworth clan decorating the home.
‘Where is Chris?’ another worried fan wrote, as one pointed out the pair have been taking less photos together than usual.
Chris and Elsa tied the knot during the Christmas holidays in 2010.
The couple live in a $30million mansion in Broken Head near Byron Bay after relocating from Los Angeles to Australia nine years ago.
