In 2014 and 2019, our founders, the sisters Carolin and Larissa, were able to get to know and love the breathtaking country of Australia. Fascinated by the nature, the joy and the attitude to life of the Australians, they especially remembered the lightness and positivity. Inspired by the "just do it" attitude of Down Under and equipped with the founder gene they founded the Walkabout brand.


The two sisters from near Karlsruhe realised that there are many like-minded people who have fallen in love with this beautiful country. 

This led to the idea of giving everyone (especially at times when it is not possible to travel to Australia due to COVID-19) the opportunity to get a Piece of Australia and therefore to bring the country's attitude to life home. And what better way to do that than with our unique pieces of jewellery, which not only convey the bond with Australia to the outside world, but also many great memories, emotions and positive values. In this way, an entire attitude to life is represented by our jewellery.

                                                                 

                                                                                      


OUR MISSION

We want to inspire people in the long term and give each individual a piece of Australia and the country's associated attitude to life, in that our unique jewellery - and indeed it is, as we created the designs ourselves and they have not existed like this before -  carries the positive, relaxed and easy attitude to life from the inside out.


It has always been clear to us: If we establish a brand, we do so consciously, cooperatively and sustainably in all areas of the company. Appreciative, respectful and human in co-constructive and co-working with all participants.


Our PhilAUSophy


Our concern is to build a positive and sustainable company with motivated people, where each individual can develop creatively and freely. We want to transform the work-life balance into a life-life balance. At Walkabout, family and friendship are our top priorities. We want to shape and enjoy life together in the best possible way, based on the Australian "no worries" lifestyle.


We will help to make the jewellery industry a little better: Away from jewellery made from cheap, unethical and unsustainable materials, unfair prices and conditions - towards affordable, sustainable and yet high quality jewellery.

The meaning behind our logo has a far-reaching background and goes back to Australia's history and culture:


The word "Walkabout" describes the wandering of the Aborigines, the indigenous people of Australia, along their own dream paths (the so-called songlines). These traditional paths form an invisible, mythical map of Australia, which is passed on from generation to generation by the Aborigines through songs and which is the basis of the migrations (walkabouts) of the indigenous people of Australia. 


Furthermore, the Aborigines also understand a walkabout as a traditional initiation ritual for young Aborigines who are walking the path of their own dream path for the first time.
So, figuratively speaking, we also see Walkabout as our own dream path, that we have taken with our brand.


If you would like to know more about the individual components in our logo and how the (sign) language of the Aborigines gets reflected in it, you can read more about it in our Blog entry ("What's behind the brand Walkabout?")

Carolin, 26 years old

Time in Australia

My trip to Australia started in 2014. For this, I got the Work & Travel Visa. Since I went alone, only 5 months were planned at first, but after only 2 weeks I knew: I would stay longer and use the 1-year visa completely!
Therefore, including spontaneous, wonderful trips to Bali and New Zealand, I stayed in Australia until 2015.

The moment you fell in ♥ with Australia

Right at the beginning. That's why I extended my visa after only a short time. However, when I was lucky enough to live in one place (Sandringham, Melbourne) with my wonderful (host) family for several months and was able to experience everyday life, I was able to get to know and love the people and culture around me more intensively. I felt incredibly comfortable and knew that I had a 2nd home on the other side of the world. :-)

Favourite Walkabout jewellery

I love them all! We put so much heart and soul into our self-developed designs that I would love to wear them all around my neck every day. But if I had to choose, it would be the "no worries"-Necklace.

My own dream path

I completed a dual degree in business administration with a focus on trade fair, congress and event management in 2019.

Larissa, 28-years old

Time in Australia

I did a little world trip in 2019 and Australia was part of it. A very good friend of mine, who I've known since grade 5, emigrated to Australia years ago and I took the opportunity to finally visit her in her adopted country. From minute one I could understand why she fell in love with Australia.

The moment you fell in ♥ with Australia

This was my very first evening in Australia (in Sydney to be precise). Although I had a 10-hour flight from Hawaii to Down Under behind me, the ease and composure of the Aussies catered to me directly and during a bar crawl I was able to get to know the openness and warmth immediately.


Another "I fell in love with" moment was when I was walking through the streets of Brisbane in the evening and there was a truck playing loud music on a street corner. People of all ages, genders and backgrounds were dancing salsa together in front of the truck and I was immediately carried away.

Favourite Walkabout jewellery

It changes all the time depending on the occasion and mood. I love all our designs! What always works for me and always gets our positivity out there the fastest is the Sun-Necklace.

My own dream path

After studying teaching for a few semesters, but then realising that I didn't put my heart and soul into it, I changed my studies and ended up studying "Language, Culture and Translation".
