It is almost two years since Audrina Patridge made her exit from the popular American reality show The Hills alongside eye-catching Lauren Conrad.

However, the 26-year-old star has been busying herself with other projects in recent years so it was no surprise she was snapped taking a break from it all at the Australian resort of Byron Bay.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the beauty was joined by boyfriend Corey Boham as the pair celebrated his milestone 30th birthday.

Strutting across the sand, a bronzed Patridge paired her colourful two-piece swimsuit with a silver necklace and over-sized sunglasses.

Although the pair parted ways in April last year, they reunited the following month, with Audrina suggesting her self-titled reality show was stifling the relationship.

She said: “Filming a reality show really takes a toll on relationships … so after the show Corey and I really worked on what was going on with us,” the news provider quoted.

Born in Los Angeles in 1985, the multi-talented actress took to the dance floor in 2010 as a contestant of Dancing with the Stars.
