London: Hollywood hunk Hugh Jackman seems keen to return to his native Australia as he was recently spotted house hunting with his family in Melbourne.

The ``Wolverine`` star, who moved with his family from Sydney to New York two years ago was checking out various homes which ranged between USD 4 and 6 million, Daily Mail online reported.

The properties he looked at included a modern white mansion, studded with conifer trees and a large flower bed and a traditional-looking home, complete with a series of peaked roofs and shrouded by trees.

The 42-year-old actor moved to New York at the end of 2008 which is only a five hour flight away from Hollywood where his career is going strong and has been spending some time in Australia over the Christmas season along with his wife and two kids.
