Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness may be moving back Down Under.
The pair have just downsized from their $54.8 million West Village apartment in New York to a smaller home in Chelsea.
But sources say Jackman, 54, and Furness, 66, have shipped their excess furniture back to Australia.
“Almost everything that didn’t go to the smaller apartment is being shipped to Oz,” a source told Woman’s Day.

The Aussie couple bought their trendy Chelsea home in May for US$21.1 million (approx. $30.2 million), but are reportedly keen on linking back home.
“They’re serious about moving Down Under one day and this was the perfect opportunity to start sending things back,” the source added. “Having a smaller place [in Chelsea] has freed up money to invest in their eventual base in Australia as well, so they’re excited about taking steps towards their Aussie dream.”
The next step for the two parents is convincing their children, Oscar, 22, and Ava, 17, which may be difficult. The couple adopted both of their children, adopting Oscar in 2000 and Ava in 2005.
Furness, who suffered multiple miscarriages prior to their decision to adopt, is a major advocate for adoption and started her own organisation, Adopt Change in 2008.

She is also the founder of National Adoption Awareness Month (NAAM) and received an Order of Australia for her work in campaigning for accessible, safe adoption for children and hopeful parents.
“[The children’s] friends, their studies, hobbies, everything they know and love is based in New York,” the source explained.
The X-Men star first met Furness while they were both sharing the screen on the Aussie television series Corelli.
Jackman said he developed an instant crush on Furness, but didn’t act on it because at the time Furness was “this big star”. Read their entire romantic love story here.
The pair married in 1996 and have been happily paired ever since.
