Welcome home


Hi, we are Colin and Andrew, your local HomeLink co-ordinators.


HomeLink Australia was established in 1980, providing a way for us to explore our amazing country and connect with our families, friends and fellow Australians interstate. As part of HomeLink International Associates, the world's oldest home swapping network, membership also meant that once in a lifetime trips abroad became simply a matter of choosing when to go.

Our HomeLink community is composed of people from all over the world, with diverse backgrounds, ages, and life experiences. Yet we are all similar, connected by our sense of adventure, our love of life and pleasure from authentic cross-cultural holiday travels.

Our origins - the birth of HomeLink International Associates - 1953

HomeLink International has a particularly exciting history. We started over 60 years ago, from a collaboration of two separate networks of friends in two different continents which had each set up a formal club for home swapping. Within a few years, both groups came to hear about each other. Excited that there were like-minded people, they quickly joined their efforts and became one, expanding their travel and friendship possibilities across Europe and North America, and creating what we now know as HomeLink International.
