Selena Gomez is spending some time in the land Down Under.

The 25-year-old "Wolves" singer was spotted arriving at Sydney Airport in Sydney, Australia on Monday. Even after her long flight, Gomez looked chic. She wore white sweatpants, a white shirt and a jean jacket. She also accessorized her look with a cap and sunglasses, as well as a pair of silver hoop earrings and white sneakers. In addition to bringing her travel fashion A-game, the singer brought a black ukulele.

Gomez didn't waste anytime enjoying some fun in the sun. The "It Ain't Me" singer hung out on a yacht with a few friends. She looked totally relaxed lounging in the sun with her book. She also cooled off with a quick dip in the Sydney Harbour.

"The weather was warm and they spent the day laying on the deck tanning and eating lunch," a source told E! News. "They went under the Sydney Harbor Bridge and took pictures. Selena was hugging her friends and very happy. They had a lot of laughs together and seem very close."

Gomez wore a bright orange bikini top and black bikini bottoms.

According to the insider, Gomez travelled to Sydney for the Hillsong Colour Conference for women. She seemed "very happy to be back in Australia."

"On Monday, Selena and her friends attended the Colour Conference at the International Convention Center," the source said. "Selena was seated in the center a few rows up and seemed very inspired by [pastor] Bobbie Houston and her message. Selena and her friends were cheering and clapping. They were singing along to the music and dancing. They were very moved and excited to be at such an incredible event."

In November, Gomez attended the Hillsong Conference 2017 in Los Angeles with Justin Bieber. However, the Biebs didn't join her on this trip to Sydney—fueling rumors he and Gomez are giving each other some space.

The two rekindled their romance in November and spent a lot of quality time together. They even celebrated Valentine's Day together and were each other's dates for Bieber's father's wedding. However, the two have been spending more time apart. For instance, Bieber attended the Mar. 15 premiere of Midnight Sun without Gomez and Gomez missed out on Bieber's 24th birthday celebration earlier this month. A separate source told E! News a "disagreement" around the "Sorry" singer's birthday celebration caused the two to take a "break." However, a third source said the two are "still in contact and talking."

"They have cooled off on being together all the time and making it a big serious thing," the third source said

Still, dating in the limelight can be a strain for any couple.

"They had several disagreements on their lifestyle and how to handle their relationship in the public eye," the third source continued. "She really wants to keep things low key and out of the spotlight. Selena has been spending time with her family and her girlfriends. She is still going to church and keeping the lines open with Justin though. This is a more reset and a step back to reevaluate what's going on and what direction they want to go in."
