Thor star Chris Hemsworth and his actress wife Elsa Pataky have snapped up a luxury new home in the actor's native Australia.

The couple's new Byron Bay pad in New South Wales will become home base for the action man, his Spanish wife and their kids India, two, and six-month-old twins Tristan and Sasha.

They're the new owners of clifftop retreat Kooeloah, after buying the estate for $AUS7.2 million ($6.3 million).

According to the Sydney Daily Telegraph, the ultra-private Balinese-style house and estate features three separate villas, swimming pools and stunning views over the Pacific.

Hemsworth and Pataky scored a bargain - the home was initially listed for sale in 2012 at $AUS15 million ($13.2 million).
