Zac Efron and girlfriend spotted at Gold Coast cafe

Hollywood heart throb Zac Efron has been spotted out and about on the Gold Coast with his new Aussie girlfriend Vanessa Valladares.

The 33-year-old, who now calls Byron Bay home, was snapped getting a bite to eat at popular southern Gold Coast cafe The Salt Mill in Currumbin, which is well-known for its acai bowls.

The pair were able to cross the Queensland border after the State Government expanded the Gold Coast and Tweed travel bubble to include further parts of northern NSW, including Byron Bay, earlier this month.


Following their brunch date, the loved-up couple enjoyed a casual stroll along the beach at Currumbin, surprising fans who recognised the pair.

Efron reportedly first met Valladares several months ago while she was working as a waitress at a cafe in Byron Bay.

The pair have been inseparable ever since, with the 25-year-old even quitting her job to spend time with the actor.

The sighting comes after Efron threw a star-studded birthday bash in Byron over the weekend, attended by several celebs including actors Chris and Liam Hemsworth,  tennis champ Pat Rafter and The Voice host Renee Bargh.
