Welcome to Little Aussie - extremely useful local info

Here at Little Aussie we believe in making communities local again. And we think the best way to achieve this is to connect residents, like you, with honest, reliable and local family-run businesses - the sort of business we would refer to our own family and friends.

You will find those types of businesses in our magazines and online. We also support local, not-for-profit community groups by offering free advertisements and listings to help residents connect with sporting clubs, support groups, and many more local organisations.

Should you be stretching?

Muscles shorten during exercise, from bad posture, with ageing and not being used. The goal of stretching is to increase muscle length, flexibility and blood flow - whether you’ve been sitting at a desk all day or are training for a sports event.
