Hollywood heartthrobs Liam and Luke Hemsworth have reportedly just snapped up a property each in Byron Bay, not far from their A-list brother Chris.

Liam forked out a whopping $6.5 million to purchase a five bedroom property in the Newrybar hinterland, which was previously a wedding venue known as Newrybar Downs, according to Domain.

The home is surrounded by 10 acres of tropical landscape, and was designed by Hollywood production company director, Jason Schepisi, after he bought the land in 2011 for $1.3 million.

Two years later, it was purchased by Pip and Greg Rooke, who turned it into a luxury wedding venue.

The U-shaped home has two bedroom wings, either side of a garden courtyard, and boasts a pool, cabana, a bowling green and lush lawns.

It appears The Hunger Games and his model girlfriend, Gabriella Brooks, have already moved into the residence, with Brooks Instagramming a picture of herself on the lawns.

The same day Liam’s purchase was sealed and delivered, Westworld star Luke took the keys to a $4.9 million Suffolk Park beachfront home, which was in a family trust directed by Liam and Chris.

The house was purchased by the family’s trust two years ago for $4.3 million.

Chris and wife Elsa Pataky are now living in their $20 million renovated Broken Head digs, which took years to complete, after purchasing the 4.2-hectare property for $7 million in 2014.

While we haven’t seen completed photos of the house, we know there’s a giant mural inside by Indigenous artist Otis Hope Carey, called Darrungdan Gaagal (thanking the ocean). We also know it’s decked out with solar panels, has been compared to a shopping centre by locals and, of course, features a huge personal gym.

The Hemsworths have spent more than $20 million on Byron Bay property in the past five years.
