Welcome swallow

Our website mascot is an Australian swallow who adopted us when we were living off-grid in Gumbaynggirr country in northern NSW, and shared our tiny home with us.

For sailors out at sea, sighting these birds means land isn’t far away, which is why they’re called Welcome Swallows!

The Welcome Swallow is a symbol of hope and courage, home and community, irrepressible resilience and adaptability.
