Natalie Imbruglia buys $1.3m property in Byron Bay

Natalie Imbruglia has been seen out and about in Byron Bay amid rumours that she has purchased her own slice of paradise in the tourist hotspot. 

The former Neighbours star is believed to have invested in a $1.3 million property in the area, which has becoming something of a mini Hollywood, Domain reports. 

Ms Imbruglia joins a star-studded lineup of famous faces that have bought into the district in the past. 

Possum Creek was arguably first put on the global stage by Paul Hogan - famous for his Crocodile Dundee character - when he famously had an Italian-style mansion built there.

Since then, Simon Baker and his wife Rebecca Rigg bought their own hinterland property in Nashua for $1.5 million in 2009, Chris Hemsworth spent $7 million on a Broken Head home in 2014 and Isabel Lucas recently spent $857,500 on a beachside escape.

Ms Imbruglia is thought to have bought a two hectare property in the Coorabell hinterland, the centrepiece of which is a three-bedroom 'shack' with spectacular views to the ocean.

Once the purchase has settled, it is expected to become a home building project for the singer, who could be splitting her time between Australia and London. 

Listed for $1.3 million in April by previous owners the Richards family, the property sold for the asking price earlier this month. 

Ms Imbruglia's former husband Daniel Johns has also been active on the Australian property market, selling his Bondi Beach apartment block as part of a syndicate with the rest of the owners. 

The sale was made in one line for over $11.5 million. Mr Johns had purchased his two top-floor apartments in the block of seven for $1.6 million back in 2001 - two years before his marriage to Ms Imbruglia.
