From The Beginning

Tread Local is an online community for people to champion the simple and unique experiences of their own backyards. We want advice from locals when we travel, we want it to be authentic, and we want to find it all in one place.

Hi Friends, we are Taneille and Sal. We met and worked together in the Northern Territory and have both lived and travelled far and wide independently, with friends, family and young children for both holiday and work.

When friends or family visit we take great care in recommending places they should not miss and have turned around their “why would you live here?” to “you live in such an amazing place!”. From Rapid Creek to Engadine, Kununurra to Scone and Burleigh to Broome we know the simple unforgettable experiences are not often in plain sight.

Tread LOCALS believe in exploring the great backyard that is Australia and New Zealand. We love where we live and want to share how awesome it is.

We find beauty in the ordinary, and joy in unexpected places.

We care about Australia and our Kiwi friends across the ditch and we want to support LOCALS wherever possible. 

We wished we had a local in our pocket when we travel. So we became one for someone.

Join this awesome community of locals by submitting a “Tread” and tell us about the amazing patch that is your backyard. Gift travellers advice that ensures they will never miss the best spot for a sunset, the new gin bar, hidden rock pool, best burgers, rich delicious coffee or new local craft beer. 

We hope you will also enjoy the gift of local advice from one of the Tread Team on your next adventure.
