New York triplex home
Hugh Jackman is the owner of a triplex apartment in NYC and he got it for a cool $19 million. This is dirt cheap considering that the original asking price was $40 million. This is one huge estate and Hugh Jackman is one lucky man to own this.
Location - The glorious triplex is located on 176 Perry Street in the New York City.
Accommodation - The triplex is on the 8th, 9th and 10th floors of the building and all the floors are connected by dramatic circular staircase. There is a double height living room, gourmet kitchen, a large dining room, a room specifically designed for recreation and a wine cellar. There are five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a master bedroom, a couple of powder rooms, a music room and an exercise room.
Features - Each floor of this building has a terrace but the best part is the double-height living room which gives a stunning view of the Hudson River. The interior of the triplex is just superb and it seems that Hugh was totally impressed by the work of Richard Meier, the architect who designed the interiors of this wonderful home.
Neighborhood - The surroundings are not new for the actor as he used to stay on rent before in the building. Though it cannot be confirmed whether he has any celebrity neighbors, it can be said the Perry Street in New York is very famous for fine dining places.

The stunning car is a 4 door sedan with 3 speed automatic transmission and 3 speed manual transmission. The front headlamps are very stylish and it reaches 0 to 60 MPH in just 8.2 seconds flat.

Bondi Beach Vacation
Hugh Jackman decided to take a day off from his hectic work schedule and opted to spend a day in the world famous Bondi Beach in the third week of December 2012. The Aussie greatly enjoyed his day long holiday, enjoying a swim in the cool blue sea waters and also took advantage of the warm weather to get a sun tan. He even found time to get himself photographed with a gorgeous bikini clad brunette.
Location: Bondi Beach is situated 10km away from Jackman’s home town of Sydney, the capital of New South Wales.
Accommodation: Bondi Beach is well equipped with more than five dozen luxury hotels. Renting a suite for a day in five star rated hotels of the likes of Swissôtel Sydney, Sebel Surry Hills, Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel and The Hilton can cost in the range of $2,000 to $2,500.
Main Attractions: Bondi Beach is considered to be one of the best beaches in the world to try out the popular water sport of surfing and is home to the world’s oldest surfing club. No visit to Bondi is complete without a swim in the ocean adjacent to the beach. The Bondi Icebergs outdoor ocean pool is also a superb venue to go for a swim. The beach itself is a great place to indulge in a leisurely pastime like sunbathing. A visit to the Bondi Market place, open only on Sunday mornings is well worth a try for the opportunities it offers to pick up indigenous Australian musical instruments like didgeridoos at bargain prices along with art objects like oil paintings. Visitors can also soak in the sight of the beautiful coastline by going for a walk down the Bondi to Bronte stretch measured at approximately 3.6 km.

The noted actor has a pet pooch which is more loved by his daughter Ava. The pet has now become an integral part of his family and his daughter just adores this lovely companion.

Jackman and his daughter are often seen taking the cute pooch for a morning walk along the road.
The Australian actor serves as the latest brand ambassador for Audi. The actor is proud to be associated with this luxury brand and he feels privileged as he also drives an Audi Q7 for his personal use. One thing is obvious that Jackman will be instrumental in raising the profile of the Auto company and its luxury products.
