This surely makes Damon an honorary Aussie

FIRST it was Kmart, and now actor Matt Damon has been spotted back in Ballina for some BCFing fun.

Retail chain BCF (Boating Camping and Fishing) shared a now-deleted photo of the Hollywood actor visiting its Ballina store, near Byron Bay, on Wednesday, posing with store worker Jayden.

"Matt Damon dropped by our BCF Ballina store and said G'day to the team! What a legend, even walked away with a BCFing Expert hat!" the post read before it was deleted the following day.

It came after a photo of Damon visiting Kmart in Ballina, posted by 13-year-old fan Daniel Freeman while the rest of Hollywood was enjoying the Academy Awards ceremony, went viral on Monday.

Damon has also been spotted across the border in Queensland, visiting Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast.

The 48-year-old star of the Bourne films, along with wife Luciana and their three children, has been frequenting beaches around Byron Bay, often with friend Chris Hemsworth's family, since he arrived back in Australia in early February.

Damon spent more than two months holidaying in Byron Bay in 2018.
