Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall have taken a three-day break from the Magic Millions events on the Gold Coast to enjoy the beach of Byron Bay.
Zara, 37, looked happy and relaxed in a blue striped beach costume with tassel detail, hiking sunglasses and bare feet.
She swept her blonde curls into a low bun for a relaxed look.
Meanwhile her husband Mike, 40, was wearing a matching blue T-shirt and patterned shorts with a baseball cap and flip-flops as he carried a surfboard to the beach.
The couple seemed to enjoy their free time in Australia as they chatted with friends.
Former rugby player Mike the sun appeared as he relaxed on his surfboard.
Zara had several outfit changes during her beach visit.
The Olympian turned into a khaki T-shirt and white shorts paired with flip-flops when she went to the car. She was also seen in a casual white shirt.
Mike put on a darker blue polo shirt, beige shorts and sneakers.
The oldest granddaughter of Queen Elisabeth and her husband are special guests for a number of polo events in the country.
On Sunday Zara took part in the Magic Millions Polo Tournament of the Gold Coast.
She looked delighted to be back in the saddle after missing part of the event last year when she was pregnant with her second child.
Team Harrold captain Zara met Argentinian player Nacho Figueras at the sold-out Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo.
Figueras is a close friend of Sara’s cousin Prince Harry and has played several times against the flame-haired prince.
Mike and Zara had a very busy social calendar and took part in a number of unusual events during their stay in Australia.
Later on Sunday, Zara and Mike put on their cheerful rags to meet with the guests in the VIP area of the annual polo event at Doug Jennings Park.
The granddaughter of the queen looked typically chic on this occasion in a pink lace dress and came armed with a sun hat in view of the 27°C temperatures.
She swept her blonde locks into a low bun and wore tortie sunglasses to the sporting event and completed her ensemble with a pair of naked nappy wraps and a matching speaker coupling.
On Tuesday, the couple attended a star-studded evening at the Special Marquee on the Gold Coast for the Magic Millions VIP Cocktail Party.
The glamorous couple was indeed very well suited, both in dark tones for the prestigious night.
