Organised events included harbour cruises in Sydney

Get Naked Australia founder reveals the best things you can do nude from hot air ballooning to rock climbing


THE founder of an Instagram account called Get Naked Australia is sharing his favourite things you can do nude around the country.

The account, which has 226k followers, has a feed comprising photos submitted by people getting naked out in the wild.

And now the founder, Sydney-sider Brendan Jones, is recommending his top activities to do naked around Australia.

Sailing on the harbour and rock climbing featured on his list, as did hot air ballooning, yoga retreats, weekend retreats and camping.

Jones founded the account back in 2015 after he started hiking then stripping off at swimming holes.

The 28-year-old physio told Escape the idea for the movement came about after he got 12 photos of himself naked with a scenic backdrop, and put them in a calendar for his wife for Christmas.

“It got a lot of laughs so I thought about starting an Instagram page for the bum shots and calling it Get Naked Australia. It just snowballed in popularity after that,” he said.

Get Naked Australia also now runs a range of nude activities around the country.

The Get Naked Australia events began in Sydney but Jones’ organisation has recently expanded into Queensland and Victoria.

“In Sydney we run a few harbour cruises each year and we’re now running weekend retreats,” he said.

“This is in addition to regular hikes, skinny dips and beach days that we run.”

In Far North Queensland there were now cruises running, and Get Naked Australia was also aiming to kick off Great Barrier Reef snorkeling safaris and remote island camping. 

“Lastly we’ve aligned with a tour company out of Darwin and we’re going to be working with them to provide road trips where skinny dipping in as many great outback swimming holes as possible is the goal,” said Jones. 

Jones’ “big goal” was to open up a naturist resort near the coast somewhere north of Sydney.

“We just need a few investors,” he said.

Public nudity is an offence in Australia when a person wilfully and obscenely exposes his or her person, according to Go To Court.
