Dylan's brother Zac Efron has been living down under with his girlfriend Vanessa Valladares for months.

It's understood Dylan has arrived in the country to help produce season two of Zac's Netflix show, Down To Earth.

But this doesn't sit well with many locals.

Dylan came under fire after he shared an update with fans from day two of quarantine.

One Instagram user commented, 'Please educate yourself and speak up for stranded Aussies!!!'

They continued, 'If you’re going to take a valuable spot desperately needed by Aussies in the hotel quarantine system, the absolute least you can do is raise some awareness of what they’re facing.'

'There are a bunch of FB groups filled with stranded Aussies in dire situations,' the user concluded.

Dylan appreciated the comment, and thanked the user for, 'pointing [him] in the direction to learn more.'

He added, 'The last thing i’m trying to do is be unsympathetic to the local families who are unable to be together right now.'

'I’m very thankful to be able to work here and will do my best to raise awareness of what the locals are facing.'

In response to another comment, Dylan apologised, 'if [his] tone [came] across unsympathetic.'

As quoted by Perth Now, he said, 'That’s the last thing I’m trying to do and I wish it wasn’t the case.'

'I came to Oz on a work visa for a project I’m working on, it took months of planning and was a difficult process but thankfully I was approved and am incredibly grateful to be able to work here.'
