Make me a Travelling Tradie

For  Tradies  By  Tradies

We provide affordable travel opportunities for skilled Tradies so they can have an epic adventure, improve their health & well-being and become a global local.

We do this by introducing Aussie Tradies to Hostels from around the world where they exchange their skills a few hours a day for food & accommodation.

In the September 8 lucky Tradies will have a chance to explore Brazil for 3 months and experience what it's like to be a Travelling Tradie. 

 Last year we did a Pilot to Brazil to iron out the creases, and this year we are proud to announce; 



Travelling Tradies fosters an honest space that helps people connect and escape the stresses and anxieties bought on by work. This is done through building a tribe of tradies here in Oz,  meetups and our ability to enable our Tradies to travel the world and become global locals.

The suicide rate for men in our industry is roughly double the rest of the male working population. Similarly, a 2014 PriceWaterhouseCoopers report found one in four construction workers had experienced mental illness over a 12 month period. 

Our platform exists to remove the mental illness stigma on site and help reduce these statistics.

Meet  The  Founder


“I was earning good money, but could never seem to fill the void inside myself. Always searching for something more I suffered severe depression and after 2 fellow tradies on job sites I was working on took their own lives in the space of a week, I spontaneously booked a one-way ticket to South America where I disappeared for nearly 3 years. In that time I travelled to 11 countries and spent less than $12,000 and that was through the ability to exchange my skills wherever I went. Upon returning home I realised many others wanted a way to explore the world "paying" with their skills, so Travelling Tradies was born!”
