Hollywood actor Matt Damon has revealed his family has a new Australian tradition brewing after he was spotted at an iconic show.

On Tuesday, Damon and his family were seen at The Ekka, Queensland’s biggest agricultural show which is also known as the Royal Queensland Show.

Wearing a Stone and Wood cap and black sunglasses, the Hollywood actor casually spoke about his love for the show.

“Hey, I love it here, it’s our second year in a row coming, it’s turned into a family tradition,” he said.

“So, thanks for having us back.”

He then gave a “shout out” to “everyone at the Ekka”, saying that everyone involved does a “great job”.

Damon was reportedly at the Ekka with his wife Luciana Barroso, and daughters Isabella, 17, Gia, 14 and Stella, 12.

He was also spotted with Elsa Pataky, Chris Hemsworth’s wife and the couple’s children. However, Hemsworth was not seen at the show.

The Courier Mail reported that Damon and his children went on The Joker, which Ekka says is the “largest and fastest looping ride in Australia”.

Damon previously lived in Australia for six months while he filmed Thor: Love and Thunder back in 2021.

He and Hemsworth are close friends and were seen together in Byron Bay last month, while their partners, Pataky and Barroso were also seen together.

Just last week the Daily Mail reported that Damon and his family were seen going to the cinema in Byron Bay.

The same Stone and Wood cap he wore to the Ekka on Tuesday was the same one he wore to the cinemas, as per photos shared by the Daily Mail.

Stone and Wood was established in Byron Bay back in 2008 and has become a staple in pubs around Australia.

Perhaps the most iconic Damon-in-Byron moment came in 2021 when he did a US interview from the gambling area of a pub, after the owners let him stay back to to chat to the Today Show.

“I’m in Australia, I’m having a beer. The people at the local club were nice enough to leave it open just so that I could do this [interview],” he told NBC’s Today Show, according to The Daily Mail.

“They’ve got the best internet connection in this neighbourhood where I am.”
