He said: "It was a different world. There were crocodiles and buffalo. We were isolated, one of two white families.

"We saw a lot of corroborees and tribal dancing. I have a wider understanding for the Aboriginal situation because of my time there. It's an insight into that world that most people don't get."

Chris - who has six-month-old daughter India with wife Elsa Pataky - also admitted portraying Thor in 'The Avengers' was a "dream" because he realised he was part of something as iconic to young fans as 'Star Wars' had been to him when growing up.

He told Australia's GQ magazine: "It was definitely a dream scenario.

"I was on 'The Avengers' publicity tour and I had a real moment where it felt like I was part of something special. Kids were looking at 'The Avengers' like I used to look at 'Star Wars'. They were running around pretending to be us."
