Lara, who is married to actor Sam Worthington, still looks just as fit and youthful as she did during her modelling heyday in the late 2000s.

She pranced down the beach with the wind blowing in her hair, showing off her lithe limbs and beaming smile in the process.

While it’s unclear if the Seafolly campaign will reference Lara’s days as the face of Australian tourism, seeing her in a bikini again is certainly a sight to behold.

She hasn’t done a swimwear shoot in a long time, after swapping glamour modelling for a quieter life as a beauty mogul and fashion influencer.

Since marrying Sam, who is best known for his role in Avatar, she has mostly stayed out of the headlines and adopted a more conservative style of dress.

Before the notoriously private couple started dating in 2013, Lara had been a tabloid fixture in Sydney.

She had her own reality show, Being Lara Bingle on Channel 10, and dated a string of famous men, including former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke.

Remember this? Lara was a little-known 19-year-old model from Cronulla, in Sydney's south, when she became the face of Australia's tourism industry
