    As a devoted family man and husband, I have a handful of passions that drive me, and one of them happens to be naturism. I firmly believe that everyone should have the chance to immerse themselves in the liberating and nourishing lifestyle of naturism, which can bring incredible benefits to both the mind and body. My wife and I are lucky enough to be members of, and live at Kiata, a land based club located west of Sydney, near Windsor. Join us in exploring the boundless joys of naturism and all that it has to offer!

    Jenni

    Hi I’m Jenni and I live on Yuggera land. After many years raising my children on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland I have moved to inner city Brisbane. I work full time and have a very social life which is at the moment 75/25 textile/nudist events. Naturism to me is how I feel more comfortable. Where I feel 100% my authentic self. I have always felt included and have never been bullied or shamed for body shape or size, my occupation, my net worth or for the car I drive. To me it is home and a safe space.

    When asked to nominate for Vice President I was all in. Do I have a burning agenda to accomplish – No! However expecting things to change, evolve and grow without actually being part of it is foolish and it was time to step up and be part of the catalyst for change. Encouraging every single person who loves being a naturist to be part of the Australian Naturist Federation. Where there are many there is a voice that can be heard.

    Gavin

    I’m a family man with a wonderful wife and three amazing kids (although, I’m currently the only naturist in the bunch!). Naturism has been a passion of mine since I was young, but it wasn’t until I was approaching my 50th birthday that I decided to shed my worries about societal judgement and join a local naturist club.

    When I saw the call for a Treasurer, I knew that this was my chance to dive even deeper into the naturist community. With a degree in accounting and a previous career in banking, I felt well-equipped to take on the financial responsibilities of the organisation. Nowadays, I work as a librarian, which is quite a change from my previous professional life.

    But regardless of my day job, I’m committed to spreading the word about the many benefits of naturism, and helping to build a stronger, more vibrant community of like-minded individuals. So if you’re looking to embrace your natural self and connect with others who share your love of nudism, don’t hesitate to reach out!

    Mark and Karyn

    Hi, we’re Mark and Karyn. We’ve been happily married for a long time now and have a unique passion for being in the nude. Whether we’re exploring the beautiful Great Sandy Straits or enjoying a dip in the crystal-clear waters of Fraser Island, you can bet we’re doing it in our birthday suits.

    But being nudies isn’t just a hobby for us, it’s a lifestyle that we fully embrace. That’s why we’ve decided to take our love for nudism to the next level and become more involved in the community. Recently, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to join the ANF and contribute in any way we can to promote this amazing way of life.

    We believe that being a nudist is about more than just shedding your clothes; it’s about embracing your body and connecting with nature in a way that simply isn’t possible when you’re dressed. We hope that by sharing our passion for nudism, we can inspire others to give it a try and experience the freedom and joy that comes with living in harmony with the natural world.

    Hi there, folks! You can call me Josh, but my friends and colleagues know me as “Belt Buckle.” As your Queensland representative and Public Relations Officer for the ANF, I’m thrilled to be in a position to promote and celebrate the naturist lifestyle in all its forms.

    As a family man with a loving wife and two amazing children, we all embrace and enjoy the nudist lifestyle. For us, it’s about fostering open-mindedness, body positivity, and the acceptance that every human body is unique and beautiful, regardless of size, shape, or color.

    I’m truly passionate about nudism and its many benefits, and I believe that Australia has a long way to go in terms of destigmatizing this wonderful way of life. As a member of the ANF committee, I’m determined to help change attitudes and promote nudism as a positive force for good.

    I’m always up for a good laugh and a great time, and I firmly believe that life is a precious gift to be celebrated to the fullest. So if you see me or my family around, don’t hesitate to come say hello! I’m always up for a chat or even an interview, and I’m excited to continue spreading the word about the joys of naturism. Have a fantastic day, and remember to always stay true to yourself and be kind to one another.

    Richard

    I’m Richard – a passionate member of the ACT Nudist Club. Before finding my way to this community, I spent many years as a beach and home nudist. To me, naturism is the ultimate equalizer – a way to strip away all the labels and prejudices that society heaps upon us, and simply exist in our natural state.

    I truly believe that being a part of the nudist lifestyle can do wonders for one’s self-confidence. When you’re surrounded by other naked people, you quickly realize that nobody has a perfect body – and that’s perfectly okay. In this accepting and supportive environment, you’re free to be yourself, flaws and all. So come join us in experiencing the empowering benefits of naturism, where every body is beautiful and every person is equal.

    Shazz

    I’m proud to say that I’ve been a nudist for as long as I can remember. Since 2005, I’ve been a dedicated member of Tindo in South Australia, and I strongly believe in the power of choice when it comes to one’s lifestyle.

    Over the years, I’ve been involved in numerous projects and campaigns that promote body positivity and celebrate the nudist way of life. Whether it’s through social media, television, or other forms of media, I’m always happy to spread the message and show the world that nudists aren’t weirdos… well, not most of the time, anyway!

    For me, being a naturist is all about freedom, acceptance, and the joy of being truly comfortable in one’s own skin. It’s a way of life that brings people together and celebrates the beauty and diversity of the human body. And I’m thrilled to be a part of the ANF community, where we can work together to promote and protect the naturist way of life for generations to come.

    So if you see me around, don’t be shy! Come say hello, and let’s share in the wonderful world of nudism together.

    Michael

    Naturist or a nudist – it’s all the same. For over three decades, I have been living a naturist lifestyle and it feels completely normal and natural to me. I am grateful for the opportunity to regularly connect with like-minded individuals at various naturist clubs, retreats, beaches, camps, and other events.

    Recently, I spearheaded a campaign to save Sunnyside North clothing optional beach from being shut down by the local council. I was blown away by the show of support from the community, and we were able to successfully protect our rights as naturists. I am extremely proud of the thousands of individuals who stood with us.

    My passion for the naturist lifestyle remains strong and I always relish the chance to introduce others to this incredible way of life.

    For over 20 years, the nudist lifestyle has been part of my life. My introduction to it began when I started frequenting Lady Jane beach in Sydney and joined the Free Beach Association of NSW to advocate for clothing optional beaches in the area. Although I’ve participated in a few events throughout the years, my schedule and finances haven’t allowed for more extensive travel to attend more. I currently reside in Tasmania, which while picturesque, is lacking in nudist resorts, clubs, and beaches. Hopefully, that will change in the future.

    I am Debra, (Deb), a proud nudist of 21 years and after many years as a single I met Tony at Kiata Country Club and we married last year.

    I spent 38 years of my life as a Manager with the New South Wales Police Force before retiring.

    I have been a member of Kiata Country Club, for over two decades, serving on the Social Committee for 10 of those years.

    Since my retirement I have been travelling around Australia and overseas, exploring various nudist clubs and resorts. I love staying active with activities like yoga, walking, and water aerobics, and always enjoy meeting new people and making connections. I’m excited to see how I can contribute to the ANF community!
