Our Story, by Founder Liza Glanville

I loved living in Australia.

Long days in the sun on Bondi Beach – sand between my toes, waves curling onto the shore, children laughing, the heady smell of sunscreen and healthy, sun-kissed bodies everywhere.  Bondi on a summer’s day exudes a sense of health and wellbeing.  With its warm climate, fresh cuisine and relaxed lifestyle, Australia is one of the healthiest countries in the world.

Vegan, gluten-free and organic products are abundant and widely accepted.  When it comes to health and wellness, Australia is most certainly a world leader.  I spent over a decade in Australia, and wholeheartedly embraced this lifestyle when I moved to Bondi several years ago from Melbourne. 

In my previous career in events and production I worked with the world’s leading brands and luxury fashion houses, creating unique and immersive experiences in Australia, and across the globe.  Such were the demands of the role it was imperative to be across emerging and current trends across hospitality, fashion and the arts.  I found joy in seeing my friends and family benefitting from my knowledge in addition to my clients, and realised I wanted to share these insights with a broader audience focusing on aligning with my passions across wellness and lifestyle. 

In late 2020 I returned to the UK.  I instinctively knew this was the perfect timing to bring to life The Bondi Wellness Co, to share my inside knowledge, experiences and favourite brands back home, and beyond. The Bondi Wellness Co comprises of a highly curated online space, boasting leading and emerging Antipodean wellness and lifestyle brands.
