Miley Cyrus' boyfriend Liam Hemsworth enjoyed taking her to his native Australia

The former 'Neighbours' actor - who worked with Miley on drama movie 'The Last Song' - admits his parents took to her when she visited.

He said: "Yeah, they loved her. It was really cool to show Miley where I'm from and how I grew up, and it's a completely different world to where she's from. We don't have shopping centers of traffic lights or anything like that, where I live, at least."

Although born in the city of Melbourne, Liam spent the majority of his teenage years on the picturesque Phillip Island and 17-year-old Miley claims she became fond of the area because it felt like her own hometown, Nashville.

She told E! Daily 10: "It was awesome, I really like Australia.

"You know what? The media's really cool there, too. Even though there's paparazzi, they kind of stay their distance, it was kind of like Nashville by the sea actually, the town he's from."

Recently the 'Hannah Montana' actress revealed her mother had a crush on Liam.

She said: "I don't know who had a bigger crush on him at the beginning, my mom or me. I was like, 'No, maybe he's just too pretty. I don't want to be with someone who's better looking than me. That's like awkward.' "
