After meeting Vanessa Valladares in June while she was working at the Byron Bay General Store in Australia, where Zac Efron moved last year, the two started dating and recently spent Christmas and New Year's together down under.
The actor Zac Efron, 33, put his L.A. home on the market in December and wants to lay down roots in Australia. As of now, he has no plans to live permanently in L.A. again. He loves Australia and considers it his home.
Zac Efron — currently on a break from filming the upcoming thriller Gold in Adelaide — and Vanessa Valladares held hands while grabbing dinner with some friends in Sydney on Friday. Three days later, the couple soaked up the sun at Vaucluse beach.
They are not engaged but seem very happy, a source said. The High School Musical alum wants to make a life for himself in Australia, he keeps looking at properties. Zac Efron might have finally found what he's been looking for.
