Zac Efron enjoyed an adventurous day of hiking and abseiling in the Blue Mountains earlier this week, for his new Netflix series Down to Earth. 

And on Thursday, the Hollywood star enjoyed some downtime as he stepped out for a coffee run in Leura, which is in the picturesque Blue Mountains region of NSW. 

The 33-year-old American actor cut a casual figure as he grabbed a refreshment and was seen chatting with his series co-host, Darin Olien.

Zac kept low-key in a black camouflage cap, a black T-shirt and beige trousers. 

He teamed the look with black runners, a backpack and aviator sunglasses.

The Baywatch star appeared in high spirits as he stepped out, smiling as he walked around and chatted away. 

It remains unclear if they were planning to film more content for the series in the area, after grabbing a coffee.

On Tuesday, Zac went hiking and abseiling in the Blue Mountains and spent the day filming for Down to Earth in Katoomba, about 100km west of Sydney.

He spent the day with crew, his Australian girlfriend Vanessa Valladares, 26, and brother Dylan Efron, who is a producer on the series.  

The crew handled most of the equipment, including bright abseiling ropes.

The Blue Mountains is one of the most impressive scenic spots in NSW, and is popular with Sydneysiders because it’s only a 90-minute drive from the city.

One of the more notable attractions is the Three Sisters rock formation. 

Zac’s brother Dylan caused a stir in February when he was granted an exemption to fly into Australia during the coronavirus pandemic.

He was allowed to travel to Australia from the U.S. to help produce Zac’s TV series – even though thousands of Aussies are stranded overseas and unable to come home.

The NSW government approved his entry because Down to Earth is expected to inject $2million into the local film industry. 

Zac is travelling around Australia with wellness expert Darin Olien, the co-host of Down to Earth.

The docu-series will follow their search for healthy and sustainable ways to live.

He also embraces local food, culture and customs while exploring the land Down Under.
