When Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth called off their engagement back in September 2013, Nicholas Sparks fans everywhere faced the devastating realization that life doesn't always imitate art. While The Last Song, the film in which Cyrus and Hemsworth co-starred and first met, ended happily, their real life romance did not — it ended after an on-again, off-again three years.

But thanks to a certain paparazzi spotting on New Year's Eve, the Internet's on fire with speculation that Cyrus and Hemsworth are back on. The pair was seen together at a NYE party in Australia, documented in the below photo:

Cyrus reportedly arrived Down Under sometime last week to meet up with Hemsworth, his brother Chris, Chris's wife Elsa Pataky, and other friends and family in the coastal town of Byron Bay for the Falls Music Festival. Cyrus and Hemsworth arrived late to watch Disclosure perform.  

An anonymous source essentially confirmed Cyrus and Hemsworth's re-coupled status to local Australian news outlets, stating without reservation that “They were absolutely back on — they were hugging and kissing, it was full on. There was a lot of affection.”
