It also boasts almost 3km of ocean frontage, including beaches and coves.
It comes after Chris and his brothers, Liam and Luke, bought several multimillion-dollar properties in NSW’s Northern Rivers region.
These purchases have helped ‘push up house prices’ in the town of Newrybar, 18km from Byron Bay, realestate.com.au previously reported.

A 17-hectare farm near one of the Hemsworths’ homes recently sold for a record $8million.
Among their property portfolio, the Hemsworths own the $6.5million, four-hectare Newrybar Downs estate.
They also spent $6.8million on a 37-hectare farmlet with a building block.
Chris, his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children live in an enormous mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay, which is said to be worth $30million.

They spent years renovating their home, which sits on 4.2 hectares of land, with the help of Sydney-based MCK Architects – but the development faced some resistance from locals, who compared it to a multi-storey car park or shopping centre.
The home’s 50-metre rooftop infinity pool alone was estimated to have cost at least $400,000, an enormous indoor mural could be worth as much as $100,000, and the landscaping bill would have reached about $500,000.
There is also a gymnasium, butler’s pantry, fire pit, change rooms, outdoor play area for the three Hemsworth children, and walk-in wardrobes attached to four of the bedrooms.
On top of that, the couple added a two-lane bowling alley worth $110,000.
