High School Musical star Zac Efron arrived in Australia yesterday, keen to catch a few waves. The enthusiastic surfer touched down in Sydney from LA about 6.30am with his girlfriend, High School Musical co-star Vanessa Hudgens, by his side. Efron is a regular visitor to our shores, with this his fifth visit, but unfortunately a trip to Melbourne is not on his schedule.
Efron is in Australia to take part in surfwear company Oakley’s Learn to Surf program. The actor is a keen supporter of Oakley’s involvement in the OneSight Foundation, a global project with programs dedicated to improving vision through research and education. [Source]

Sterling Knight wasn’t always friends with Zac Efron, he admitted on The Bonnie Hunt Show today!

Sterling also told a funny story about how he got upset with Zac and he remembered it a year later when the two met on the set of 17 Again!

Zac Efron has been busy punking the paparazzi! While out jogging around Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles, the High School Musical star found himself surrounded by a group of snap happy celebrity photographers.
So he stopped dead in his tracks, waved at another runner just disappearing over the hilltop and yelled, “Hey, Robert… ROBERT!”
Laughing as the puzzled paparazzi looked at the disappearing figure, he said: “You guys are taking pictures of me? You just missed ROBERT PATTINSON.”
The photogs then bolted in search of “Pattinson.”
“When they caught up to the the runner and saw they’d been duped, the photographers ran back for Zac – but he’d hopped in his car and split,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer. [Source]
