AUSSIES WE SUPPORT

Welcome to this page which is all about the Amazing Aussie Artisans that we have the pleasure of  showcasing here in our shop.
We are fiercely proud of being Australian and want to show support to those talented people out there that are getting their own businesses off the ground and giving it a go - same as us.  
Below you will find out a little more information about these incredibly talented people. If you are interested in what they have to offer over and above what we have in the shop, I have included contact information for them all. 
If you know someone who is trying to get a business started and what they have to offer suits our shop then send an email to enquiries@islandlivingaustralia.com.au.

inspired by the beauty our coastal town has on offer, clear turquoise waters, tranquil lagoons, white sandy beaches, warm summer’s, romantic sunsets, winter shores, rolling waves and fresh salty air… its not just about our products, its about embracing the essence of our lifestyle”

 I started this adventure back in 2009 when my husband was involved in a serious accident which left him unable to return to work at his qualified trade. I was a brand new mum with my first child, a husband in recovery and a mortgage and bills to pay.

With our love of the beach, a passion for interior design and all things nice, I created Luminessence. Our newest release of products, “capturing the scent of the sea” embraces our beautiful relaxed coastal lifestyle.

We hope you love and enjoy our products as much as we do, as we pour our heart and soul into every product that we make.
