Former Home and Away actress Isabel Lucas was spotted selling her second-hand clothes at a pop-up store in Byron Bay on Sunday.

The 36-year-old – who has raised eyebrows with her controversial anti-vaxxer views – was seen setting up her patch on the side of the street near the Roadhouse café, an eatery which is often frequented by the Hemsworth clan.

She then displayed a number of eclectic clothes for passers by to examine, including vibrant sweaters, colourful prints and a stack of stiletto heels.

She was spotted crouching on the ground at one stage, beaming up at interested customers as they glazed their eyes over her unusual collection of ensembles.

For the occasion, Isabel commanded attention in a vibrant blue-skirt and black shirt that tied at the waist.

She sported minimal makeup on her face, and wore her brunette locks in a gentle beach wave.

It’s not known whether Isabel was selling the clothes for charity or for profit.

Daily Mail Australia have reached out to Isabel Lucas for further comment.

Last year, Isabel hit headlines when she shared dangerous anti-vaccination views on Instagram while commenting on a post by conspiracy theorist Pete Evans.

Throwing her support behind the disgraced former MKR judge, she wrote: ‘Freedom of choice is every human’s right. I don’t trust the path of vaccination.’

Surfer Taj Burrow added: ‘Vaccines not needed, just a good immune system.’

Anti-vaxxers spread idiotic conspiracy theories with no basis in scientific fact. They claim that ‘boosting’ the immune system through diet, supplements and sunlight can make people immune to certain diseases, which is completely false.

Before vaccination campaigns in the 1960s and ’70s, diseases such as tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough killed thousands of children, whereas today in Australia, dying from one of these is extremely rare.

Isabel later clarified her remarks on Instagram, saying she has ‘concerns around “mandatory” vaccination, not vaccination itself’.

Plan International Australia, a charity for girls’ rights, had announced on March 27 last year that Isabel was joining its stable of ambassadors.

However, following her controversial comments, she was swiftly dropped by the organisation in mid-April after less than a month.

A Twitter user wrote: ‘Are you aware your ambassador, actress Isabel Lucas, is stoking fears during this crisis? She’s also anti-vaccination… go figure.’

Plan replied: ‘We are aware of the issues and as of today, Ms Lucas and Plan International have come to a mutual agreement to end the ambassadorship.’

Isabel has a long history of activism dating back to 2007, when she and fellow actress Hayden Panettiere joined activists on surfboards to try and stop a pod of dolphins being slaughtered in Japan.

In 2020, Isabel also attended a ‘peaceful’ anti-5G protest in Byron Bay, marching from the Jing Organics health food store to the proposed location of a 5G tower.

The protest was in response to a vote from the Byron Bay Council, which voted in majority for a 5G upgrade at 8 Acacia Street in the Arts & Industry Estate.

Isabel was one of the guest speakers at the protest and was featured in fliers and promotional material advertising the march.

Recently, bizarre new conspiracy theories have circulated on social media claiming that 5G ’causes coronavirus’ by ‘sucking oxygen out of your lungs’.

These claims have been debunked by medical experts and technological experts.
