Gumtree launched in Australia back in 2007 as a local classified ads and community site, designed to connect people who were either planning to move, or had just arrived in a new neighbourhood, and needed help getting started with accommodation, employment and meeting new people.
Gumtree has grown a lot since then through word of mouth and are proud to say that Gumtree is now loved by its ever growing community all around the world. They are the local noticeboard that now spans 76 cities across 11 countries that connects not just new people arriving to a city, but primarily the locals of those cities in Australia, UK, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Poland, South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong and are the biggest website for local community classifieds including stuff for sale, cars, flat share, flat rentals and jobs for a majority of the countries mentioned.
The aim at Gumtree is to give people a simple and easy-to-use tool that allows them to quickly find what they are looking for. You can find everything you need to live your life with the help of your local Gumtree community; from that unique item at a bargain price to your dream machine car, a job or a flat, a nanny for your kids or a language teacher to help you learn a new language!
