MARGOT Robbie has come home to roost.

In her first trip to Australia in a year, the Hollywood actor celebrated her one-year wedding anniversary by returning to Byron Bay where she wed Tom Ackerley on December 16 last year.

But instead of celebrating the milestone with her husband, Robbie spent the weekend at a luxury poolside suite with a group of girlfriends for a hen's party.



In photos posted to social media the group were shown playing pool games, drinking cocktails, spending time at the luxurious Rae's on Wategos and heading for a night out.

Robbie is expected to return to the Gold Coast to spend time with her mother, Sarie Kessler, for Christmas.

Speaking to Stellar in this week's Sunday Mail, Robbie said she was struggling with homesickness after purchasing a home in California with Ackerley and would ideally like to return "every couple of months".

"It's the longest I have ever gone being away from home and it's killing me," she said.

"(I miss) everything … from something as trivial as good coffee or hearing a certain bird.

"I miss the thunderstorms more than anything; nowhere else has good thunderstorms like you do on the Gold Coast."

"Obviously (I miss) big things like my family and my friends, being there to see my nephew grow up, weddings, funerals, all those big important moments where everyone comes together. To be away during those things sucks. But even the small things suck. Like, I miss Burger Rings, I miss Nutri-Grain! I can't wait to go back."

Robbie will return to Los Angeles in January for her biggest awards season to date, nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG Award with Oscar nominations set to drop on January 23 in the US.
