Chris Hemsworth has revealed why a fleet of water trucks were spotted arriving at his Byron Bay mega-mansion this month.

After the Herald Sun first reported water trucks were arriving at the property, Chris has addressed why they were at the family's compound.

The Australian actor, 36, said on Instagram: 'The water truck was purely for drinking water.'

Chris and wife Elsa Pataky recently moved in to the £20 million coastal home with their three children.   

Denying any wrong-doing during amid New South Wales' bushfire and drought crisis, Chris said the drinking water was not for his expansive garden.

'NONE of my garden is fed by drinking water!' he said, after the publication originally claimed the arrival of the water to his property had caused some raised eyebrows among locals.

'The water truck was purely for drinking water, because like everyone in the region who is not connected to town water we have run out of portable water due to the drought,' the Thor star wrote.

A Macadamia nut farmer had told PS in the article: 'I wish I had millions of dollars to buy that amount of water, all the demand has put the prices through the roof. I've seen his gardens - it's a green, lush oasis in there.'

Chris added the implied accusation he was using the precious water supply for his garden was 'distressing' amid the 'already brutal situation the whole country is dealing with'.
