Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky have raised eyebrows after ‘a fleet of water trucks’ arrived at their $20million mega-mansion.
The trucks have reportedly been arriving to tend to a garden worth $1million at their new home in Broken Head near Byron Bay – as Australia battles through intense drought and harsh water restrictions in much of New South Wales.
A macadamia nut farmer estimated water costs would set the Hollywood power couple back ‘millions of dollars’.
Thor blimey! Chris Hemsworth, 36, and Elsa Pataky, 43, have raised eyebrows with locals as ‘a fleet of water trucks’ for their ‘$1million garden’ arrived at their $20million mega-mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay, Australia
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Chris’ representatives for comment in relation to the claims.
‘I wish I had millions of dollars to buy that amount of water, all the demand (from the bushfire crisis) has put the prices through the roof,’ the farmer told
‘I’ve seen his gardens – it’s a green, lush oasis in there,’ the farmer added.
Byron Shire is under level one water restrictions as of December 7, which comes with a range of rules for urban and rural residents.
The restrictions bar people from using irrigations systems for more than 15 minutes a day and lawns and gardens can only be watered for one hour a day.
Chris, 36, and Elsa, 43, have also however been doing their part to support local firefighters.

After purchasing the spot in 2014, a development application for the knockdown-rebuild was first lodged with Byron Shire Council in November 2016.
It was then approved in March 2017, with the build finished in November this year.
Formwork and concrete for the property foundations – known on architectural plans as ‘Project 657 BHR’ – will have set Chris and wife Elsa Pataky back $1.5million to $2million.
Fortunately, Forbes magazine estimated that Chris earned $US64.5million ($91.7million) last year alone.
