Why Wayfairer?

"We were together. I forgot the rest" - Walt Whitman

For us, travel is about connection, curiosity, and a gentle calling to make the world a better place. It's connection with a sense of belonging - with each other and the planet. Wayfairer creates this connection between you and the places you visit.

By booking with Wayfairer, you join with neighbourhoods, towns and cities to foster thriving communities. You work with local people to invest in social, environmental and economic value that is rooted in place, and leaves a legacy for current and future generations. 

About Us

We are redesigning the tourism model so that it works for the benefit of all stakeholders. 

When you book your accommodation on Wayfairer,  50% of your booking fee is reinvested back into the local region - to regenerate the environment, foster localisation, and promote sustainable and smart community development. 

And as a social enterprise, that is owned by these same local communities, the other 50% of your fee helps to create sustainable jobs across the Australian tourism sector.

Collectively we can leverage Australia’s spectacular tourism assets to deliver tangible social and environmental impact. Join our community to show your support - as we grow Wayfairer across Australia.
