EXCLUSIVE: Zac Efron cancels his flight back to Los Angeles and will STAY in Australia… after he ‘made an offer’ on a property in Byron Bay
Zac Efron has been riding out the coronavirus pandemic in Byron Bay, a quiet town on Australia’s east coast, since June.
And it seems the Hollywood actor is making plans to extend his stay Down Under.
The High School Musical star, 32, cancelled his scheduled flight home to Los Angeles last week, Daily Mail Australia can reveal.
EXCLUSIVE: Zac Efron has CANCELLED his return flight home to Los Angeles as it’s revealed he will STAY in Australia… after he ‘inspected and put in an offer’ on a property in Byron Bay
‘He was only planning to fly home if he had to,’ a source revealed. ‘He didn’t really want to go back to America.’
Zac is believed to have been given a last-minute refund for his plane ticket, which he’d booked several months ago.
He’d purchased the ticket in advance in case his tourist visa wasn’t extended by Australia’s immigration department.

But it seems his request to have his visa extended from three months to 12 months was granted, hence why he cancelled to trip home.
It comes just days after The Daily Telegraph revealed that Zac had ‘inspected and put in an offer’ on a home in Byron Bay.
However, he was apparently outbid at the last minute by a rival buyer.

Zac was apparently disappointed because he has ‘fallen in love’ with Byron Bay.
While he is staying in Australia for the time being, the Baywatch star will have to return to America eventually due to filming commitments.
He is scheduled to star in the Disney+ remake of Three Men and a Baby, based on the classic 1987 comedy starring Steve Guttenberg, Tom Selleck and Ted Danson.
