Hawkins joins A-listers in Byron Bay for summer holidays

BYRON Bay has proved it's the place to be for A-lister summer holidays, as celebrities continue their arrival into the town, iconic for its laid-back hippy vibe and picturesque beaches.

Yesterday, former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins, 34, was seen boarding a plane from Sydney bound for Northern NSW, with husband Jake.

The couple might be keen to relax in beautiful Byron Bay, after a candid Instagram post by Haskins on December 25 revealed 2017 had been filled with "highs & lows" for the Myer ambassador.

The glamour couple join a solid crew of Sydney and Hollywood glam visiting the town for exclusive parties and beach side hangouts.

Former Miss Universe Laura Csortan, 41 is also holidaying in Byron Bay with her daughter Layla Rose, posting a stunning selfie on Sunday.

Brothers Chris, Luke and Liam Hemsworth enjoyed their annual family vacation and New Year's Eve party with Liam's pop star fiance Miley Cyrus, again inviting actor Matt Damon and wife Luciana Burroso for the ride.

Chris Hemsworth, 34, his wife Elsa Pataky, 41, and their three children live at Broken Head, buying the secluded Byron Bay hinterland hideaway to renovate it in 2014.
