Being online for over 16 years we have helped reunite thousands of people from all over the world looking for someone in Australia. As an Australian owned and operated business, Mike built Oz Reunion with a passion to find his lost brother. He had success 6 years later!
PASSION, DESIGN, SUCCESS!
"With over 3.7 million unique visitors, my aim is to reunite lost family and friends through the Internet on an Australian only website. When I started we really were Australia's Original Internet Reunion Site. The website worked for me."
Oz Reunion is an Internet based business, where clients register the details of other people they are searching for, on our web site. Our aim is reunite lost family and friends through the Internet. Oz Reunion has already been reviewed by New Woman Magazine, Michelle Collins from Queensland’s Sunday Mail, Elissa Jenkins from The Courier Mail, Australian Net Guide, Andy Wells.com, MsMegaByte, Damien Nowicki from W.A.'s Sunday Times, Nick Galvin from ICON & the Sydney Morning Herald, and the Sunshine Coast Daily. See below for a copy of the articles written about us. With an amazing number of ‘hits’ since inception, our listings are growing each day. New entries are arriving from all over the world, for people looking for other people in Australia.
Our Event Register consists of many categories which most are a FREE community service. These include family & friends, military, emergency services, & sports club reunions. There is no charge and no time limit on these listings. The site has been in the planning for six years, and he created the concept from a need to locate a long lost stepbrother he is searching for. The details have been posted on the "missing persons" page. "There was no Australian Internet site that combined all types of reunions into one, so I decided to build one myself, hoping to help other people on the way as well". It was created to cater for Australian interests only. There are many sites in America where they specialize in military, high school reunions and missing persons. So why not put them all together on an Australian site!
The other section is the classifieds, where an ad of 100 words or less can be placed for a one-off payment of AUD$20.00. You can also include a FREE photo with your ad. These pages consist of an Adoption Register, Lost Loves (child hood sweethearts), Heirs, Missing Persons, Lost Contact, Here I Am ,Descendants section and School Reunions. There are also some great genealogy links on the "descendants page", by each state, that should interest a lot of people. The site enables people to have one central point of reference on the Internet if they are planning a reunion in Australia, or would like to see if for example their school is having a 10 year reunion.
Our goal is to reunite Australian family & friends who are for example, missing, adoption cases, old school friends, heirs, lost loves, or people who have lost contact with each other, using the Internet. We are not a private investigator firm, and we do not track down individual cases. It is merely an avenue to post information on an "Australian only" Internet site. The concept is designed to compliment any other searching means you are presently trying. Gaining maximum exposure in advertising, word of mouth, etc. we are currently attracting over 500,000 hits per month, and increasing rapidly, as more people find out about us!
The site was in the planning since 1994, and was launched in 2000. It was created the concept from a need to locate a long lost half-brother he was searching for, which he has now been found thanks to this website.

People love Oz Reuion and many have turned to us as a last resort when all other avenues had failed. We have literally reunited thousands of people since being online. It may take a while to be found, or it may be only a short period of time, but Oz Reunion gives people hope. Our successful reunions and media partners have spread the good word about us. We have been reviewed by many National & local agencies. A big thanks to Mr Google too.
