PayPal Australia launches a new national competition – ‘Australianarama’ – encouraging Aussies to share photos of their ‘Aussiest' treasures, and to gift with purpose through the new Buy From The Bush Marketplace this holiday season
The new marketplace will ensure the connections between the city and the bush are sustained and grow through the current disaster recovery and any that may follow.

To celebrate the launch of the new PayPal-sponsored Buy From The Bush Marketplace, PayPal Australia has launched a national competition asking Aussies to showcase their favourite Aussie items for a chance to win one of 15 x $500 prizes to spend at buyfromthebush.com.au.

The competition kicks off at 9am Wednesday, 4 November, with three $500 prizes awarded each week for five weeks, closing at 11.59pm, 8 December.

Whether you need to dust off a kangaroo-shaped door stop or polish a pair of opal earrings, to enter just share your photo in an Instagram newsfeed post or story, tell us why you love it and tag @PayPalAU, @BuyFromTheBush, #BFTBxPayPal and #Australianarama, making sure you’re following @PayPalAU and @BuyFromTheBush.    

Full Terms and Conditions

Buy From The Bush began as a social media movement supporting drought stricken rural communities in 2019 and have since amassed a 450,000 strong following. One year later, PayPal and Buy From The Bush have joined forces to launch the Buy From The Bush Marketplace last month, providing an easy-to-use, safe and secure gateway to discover and buy beautiful and unique products while supporting rural small businesses.

PayPal and Buy From The Bush join forces to launch new marketplace for rural Australian businesses

PayPal’s Consumer Shopping Expert, Danielle Grant, said the only thing more Australian than a magpie embroidered lampshade was backing mates through a tough time.

“So many of our beloved bush businesses were born out of necessity as the drought, bushfires and now the pandemic put pressure on traditional rural incomes, but they have thrived beyond expectation, fueling a flourishing alternative bush economy, largely driven by women.

“I’ve heard first-hand how profoundly the support of Australians from the cities and suburbs can impact these remarkable rural entrepreneurs, their families and communities. The new marketplace will ensure the connections between the city and the bush are sustained and grow through the current disaster recovery and any that may follow.”

“If you’ve misplaced your kookaburra serviette holder, or commemorative Aussie flag budgie smugglers, ask a neighbor for a quick photo of theirs to enter the competition, or better yet, find a new Australian treasure at buyfromthebush.com.au.”
