Brad Pitt has touched down in Australia to reunite with Angelina Jolie and their six kids.

The couple spent time apart while the 12 Years A Slave actor worked the LA awards circuit and Angelina filmed Unbroken in Australia.

Now Us Weekly has reported that Brad took a flight to Australia's Gold Coast Airport before boarding a waiting helicopter following the Screen Actors and Producers Guild Awards.

The star, who has been sporting a new haircut, has been in Los Angeles to support 12 Years A Slave, which he co-produced and had a small role in.

Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and directed by Steve McQueen, the movie has been nominated for nine Oscars and won Best Motion Picture - Drama at the Golden Globes.
