He has been a regular holiday maker at Rainbow Beach for several years and “pretty much what you see on the ads is what you get”.

“I’ve been working here four or five years and he has been coming here for that long at least,” a staff member said.

The quiet beauty and excellent surfing of the Gympie region’s stunning coast is proving increasingly popular with the rich and famous, with other international celebrities Chris Hemsworth, wife Elsa Pataky and their three children also regularly spotted at Rainbow Beach and Double Island Point surfing, holidaying and relaxing with their friends, including fellow movie star Matt Damon.

Celebrity actors Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth caused quite a stir on the weekend as they were sighted holidaying at Double Island Point.

Cummins nickname, The Honey Badger, was bestowed on him after he drew inspiration from the fierce nature of the honey badger and attempted to think like the animal in defence on the rugby field.
