Zac Efron has been in news lately. The High School Musical actor is reportedly planning to shift to Australia permanently. He probably wishes to settle down with his new Aussie girlfriend Vanessa Valladares.
Efron first met Valladares back in June while she was waiting tables at Byron Bay’s General Store café, during his visit there. Valladares is no longer waitressing and is currently pursuing a modelling career.
Does Zac Efron plan on staying in Australia permanently?
He probably does, as numerous outlets have informed that Efron has extended his tourist visa from 3 months to 12 months. Could this be because he is planning to settle down with Vanessa? Or is he finally turning his relocation dreams into reality?

It is possible that the Neighbors actor was unable to fly back home to the United States because of the current pandemic situation. Efron expressed his need to leave L.A. behind recently–
“I gotta get out of Hollywood, I’m done. It’s not a place conducive to living a long, happy, mentally-sound life. I love California, I just think that dense population of people and city life is clearly not leading to many centenarians.”
The star, who has played Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, has also hinted that he wouldn’t mind moving to the land down under. At the Australian premiere for Baywatch in 2017, Efron said–
“I’ve fallen in love with Australia and the fans out here, the people, the culture, the beach. I’ve come out for most of my premieres, every chance I had the opportunity to. [I’ve] made great friends over the years here. I kind of sneak over here on my own time as well.”
People reports that Efron’s looking to buy a permanent home in Australia. Zac recently planned on buying a beachside property in the coastal hub, but another buyer beat him to it at the last minute.
The Truth About Marriage Rumours
Zac Efron doesn’t have any plans to wed Vanessa this soon. They are still just a budding young couple. And like for every other person, the pair’s life during quarantine has been low key.
Recently, they took a trip together, and also got brunch at the start of September. Apart from that, they are just happily hanging out at home. And that’s about it.
