Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky recently moved into their £20million (AUD) mega-mansion in Broken Head, near Byron Bay, Australia.

And according to The Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday, locals have raised eyebrows over the amount of water required to maintain their '£1million garden'.

A Macadamia nut farmer estimated that water costs would set the Hollywood power couple back 'millions of dollars'.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Chris' representatives for comment in relation to the claims. 

'I wish I had millions of dollars to buy that amount of water, all the demand has put the prices through the roof,' the farmer said, referencing the bushfire crisis currently affecting Queensland and New South Wales. 

'I've seen his gardens - it's a green, lush oasis in there,' the farmer added. 

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a fleet of water trucks arrived at Chris and Elsa's mansion, with the garden reportedly costing £1million.

However Chris, 36, and Elsa, 43, have been doing their part to support local firefighters.

After purchasing the spot in 2014, a development application for the knockdown-rebuild was first lodged with Byron Shire Council in November 2016.

It was then approved in March 2017, with the build finished in November this year.

Formwork and concrete for the property foundations - known on architectural plans as 'Project 657 BHR' - will have set Chris and wife Elsa Pataky back £1.5million to £2million.

Fortunately, Forbes magazine estimated that Chris earned £US64.5million (£91.7million) last year alone.
