Homegrown star Olivia Newton-John is parting with her property near star-studded Byron Bay after 40 years and is looking for the right buyer to snap it up for $5.5 million dollars.

The four-bedroom farmhouse at 30 Victoria Park Lane, Dalwood, is set on a massive 187 acres of rolling green hills, creating an idyllic getaway for the actress, singer and cancer research activist.

The secluded property is about 40 minutes from Byron Bay and 25 minutes from Ballina.

Well before Byron Bay was a haute hippy mecca favoured by Hollywood stars, beautiful Ballina was a hinterland hideaway for a few celebrities in the know.

But the Far North Coast is no longer the hippie enclave, with A-listers swarming the area in droves. Byron Bay residents include Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky who are causing a stir with their mega mansion.

Celebs including Liam Hemsworth and his wife Miley Cyrus, Matt Damon and Natalie Imbruglia are reportedly regular holiday makers in the Byron Bay area.

Newton-John bought her property in the early 1980’s, after her breakout 1978 film Grease.

A keen environmentalist, Newton-John has planted more than 10,000 trees on the grounds since she bought it.

She rebuilt the house in 2002, creating a French country-inspired dwelling complete with an open country kitchen and a self-contained guest retreat.

The home has a cosy but luxurious feel created by the high ceilings and exposed timber beams. A wrap around terrace and entertaining areas overlook the vast property which also includes two dams and a tennis court.

When she’s in Australia, Newton-John will stay at the multi-award-winning Gaia Retreat & Spa, a luxury boutique retreat in Bryon Bay hinterland she co-founded in 2005.
