localista

The ultimate solution for community engagement and destination promotion in Western Australia

“The traditional strategy of building content and technology in isolation is failing. The only winners are the global tech giants.

In 2020, we realised our vision to build a free community network able to provide rich content and globally-competitive technology to thousands of local business, government and community websites.

Today, localista is WA’s largest community network, sharing content from 8,700 contributors with websites attracting more than 5 million users per year.”
