CHRIS Hemsworth wants to raise his children in Australia.

The 'Avengers' actor is keen to return to his home country with wife Elsa Pataky and their kids India, two, and twins Tristan and Sasha, seven months, after recently splashing out a reported $7.2 million home in Byron Bay.

He said: "We're spending more and more time back in Australia and I definitely want the kids to grow up here and spend time here.

"We were in California a lot and I missed it here [in Australia] and my wife missed it too so that was our goal to get back here."

The 31-year-old actor dotes on his children and delights in seeing them grow and learn new thinks, including his 38-year-old wife's native Spanish.

He told the Daily Mail Australia: "The twins are awesome, they're fantastic. They're seven months old now and starting to move around and their personalities are blooming.

"My daughter is speaking Spanish and English and every day it's something different."

While Chris loves being a dad to India and the twins, his wife has previously said she doesn't think they will have any more kids in the future.

She said: "We do not plan to have more children, but you can never say never.

"With twins you have more work, and now I have to do it better."
