Zac Efron's ex-girlfriend Vanessa Valladares takes her dog for a walk with friends in Byron Bay


She is rumoured to have found love again following her split from Hollywood actor Zac Efron in April.

And Vanessa Valladares, 26, certainly had a spring in her step as she took her dog for a walk in Byron Bay on Monday.

Dressed in a strapless black top and blue jeans, the part-time model appeared to be in good spirits as she led her pooch down the footpath.

She was joined by a group of friends, who each took turns holding the leash as they made their way to a local café.

Vanessa completed her edgy look with a pair of black sneakers, silver rings and a grey cross-body satchel.

Showcasing her natural beauty, the brunette opted to go makeup free and swept her hair back into a no-fuss chignon.

Vanessa had earlier shared a picture of a canvas and some paints artistically placed around the lounge area.

She then showed a glimpse of her mystery male companion, who wore a bucket hat and grey jeans, painting a canvas pinned to the wall.

Vanessa also posted a sultry mirror selfie in which she gazed at the camera while dressed in a patterned shirt and cycling shorts.

The pretty brunette has always remained tight-lipped about her private life, and gave nothing further away in the cryptic image. 

These posts came five months after the model’s split from Baywatch hunk Zac.

According to various reports, Zac, 34, was introduced to Vanessa by her boss at Byron Bay’s General Store café in June last year, and the pair hit it off straight away.

Two months later, in August, Daily Mail Australia revealed Zac had cancelled his scheduled return flight to Los Angeles because he ‘didn’t really want to go back’. 

Within weeks, the genetically-blessed couple had moved in together in Byron Bay.

Zac confirmed their relationship in September when they were spotted holding hands in public.

He also stated Zac had been dating Vanessa for much longer than reported.

There was also speculation at the time Zac and Vanessa had known each other three years before their ‘official’ first meeting at Byron Bay’s General Store café last June.

Kyle, who is good pals with Zac, revealed on live radio it wasn’t just a rumour.

‘They’ve been together for a lot longer than people realise,’ he said. ‘I don’t know where they met, but it wasn’t recent. It’s been going for a little while, but I don’t know exactly how long.’
