'We can have a normal existence': Chris Hemsworth feels right at home in Aussie beach town Byron Bay with wife Elsa Pataky and three children 

He relocated his family to Australia from the US in late 2014. 

And it looks like Chris Hemsworth has no regrets about the big move to New South Wales Coastal town Byron Bay, where he and wife Elsa Pataky are treated to greater privacy with their three children.

'We can walk straight down to the beach, we can have a normal existence and the kids have a hell of a lot more fun than they did back in the States,' the 32-year-old actor told Woman's Day magazine.

The couple are often spotted out and about in Byron Way with their four-year-old daughter India Rose, and two-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha. 

And the two talented stars have some go-to spots for their dining and shopping needs. 

They are often seen at local eatery The Farmhouse, while 40-year-old Elsa is quite the fan of hippie chic-inspired ensembles from local fashion retailer Spell. 

Revealing the blonde beauty 'owns practically everything from the store', one sale assistant told Woman's Day that her 'style is effortless and softly feminine', and she has a preference to go barefoot while out and about.

Meanwhile a shopkeeper told the publication that the family just go about their business like everyone else, saying: 'They see extremely down-to-earth for celebrities'. 

Earlier this year Thor star Chris said he was content with his decision to move the family back Down Under, as  he found the Hollywood lifestyle 'suffocating'. 

'I love what I do as an actor, but when you are surrounded by it constantly, it becomes a bit suffocating,' he told Modern Luxury.

'It’s nice to have conversations with people and be a part of a community that doesn’t live and breathe that world.

'We were living shoulder to shoulder in the suburbs and thought that’s not how we want our kids to grow up. Moving to a kind of farm setup back here on the coast in Australia has been the best thing.'

Chris and his family reportedly splashed out on a $7.2 million property in Byron Bay in September 2014 - and has made no secret of wanting his children to grow up in Australia.

The following month, the ex-Home and Away star told Daily Mail Australia: ‘We’re spending more and more time back in Australia and I definitely want the kids to grow up here and spend time here.

‘We were in California a lot I missed it here and my wife missed it too so that was our goal to get back here.’
