WHAT WE DO
We create long term opportunities for skilled Tradies to travel affordably 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.
“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 two 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 three 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!”
