Hollywood actor Matt Damon and his family are holidaying in Australia, staying at fellow A-lister Chris Hemsworth’s digs in Byron Bay, northern New South Wales.

It had been a pleasant stay until Damon’s daughter, Stella, copped her first fair dinkim Aussie experience: being stung by a jellyfish while in the surf.

An ambulance was called to The Pass, the exclusive corner of Byron where Hemsworth has his property, to treat the six-year-old.
