The Hemsworth family has made yet another real estate play in the Byron Bay area, with Liam Hemsworth understood to have paid $6.8 million to secure a Newrybar landholding.

CoreLogic records indicate the 37.51 hectare vacant block, located on the Newrybar ridgeline, changed hands in mid-September with the new owner listed as 'Hemsworth'.

It's understood that Liam, the youngest of the Hemsworth brothers, is behind the latest acquisition.

It's not the actor's first purchase in the area, having paid $6.5 million for the property formerly known as Newrybar Downs last year.

The sale was handled by McGrath Byron Bay agents Nick Dunn and Ollie Charkos.

McGrath representatives had not responded to requests for comment at the time of publishing.

The listing, which has views to the ocean, was described as "the perfect blank canvas" for buyers to create a hinterland estate.
