Launching today

After weeks of hard work behind the scenes, we are finally able to share with you the full story of #OpenForAllAU!

Today we launch our campaign to keep Australian businesses open to everyone, regardless of vaccination status.

Our campaign is inspired by a similar movement overseas. We loved the intention behind the UK version, but it focuses mainly on the events industry. We wanted to open the Australian version up to ALL business types, as well as community groups, religious organisations and medical services.

We also knew that for the project to be of any practical use for consumers, we had to go a step further than listing pledges. We had to make it possible to search for participating businesses by type and location… and so the idea of an online directory was born.

We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received before we started making any real noise… 1600+ followers on Twitter and hundreds more on Facebook before www.openforall.com.au went live!

THANK YOU for your support.

But the hard work is far from over.

Over the next two weeks, www.openforall.com.au will be open for business registrations before the directory goes live on 27 September.

We need your help to spread the word. Please download & print our Flyers, then deliver them to business owners in your local area. Let them know your personal thoughts on this issue. Silence implies consent; so if we don’t speak up, business owners may think we’re quite happy to go along with the ‘vaccine passport’ scheme none of us voted for.

If there has ever been a time to make our voices heard, it’s now.

With thanks,

The #OpenForAllAU team

  1. SO happy to see this campaign! I’m a volunteer at a Christian book shop and have wondered how we can take a stand against discrimination and segregation of people who are conscientious in their choice not to be vaccinated or they have no choice because of health issues that make the vaccine dangerous to them. It is unconscionable for the government, both state and federal, to even think this is a valid solution to getting back to a level of “normal” in our society, especially when they apparently have no plans to end it. It’s time for Australians to take a stand against this tyranny. Count me as one of your supporters. I’ll be encouraging my boss to register with this group ASAP.

  2. I fear the covid vax and will not take it. Many of my family and friends feel the same. “We’re all in this together” is a lie. Businesses have suffered and closed with huge financial losses while our government and bureaucrats keep their fat salaries. Then this disgusting vax passport enforcement? Open For All AU is the first step toward real normalcy after those despicable actions to make us 2nd class citizens!

  3. How good … there are 5-10m people in Australia being threatened with the modern day equivalent of the yellow star. If business support this, they’ll end up in the get woke, go broke pile. Cheers

  4. This is brilliant and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I am beyond disgusted by the horrible vaccine mandates. The more they push, the more I refuse. I simply do not want a Covid Vaccine in my body. I respect those who do , but it’s not for me. To think I won’t be allowed to live my life because of that choice is just so incredibly sad.

    1. Hi Dan, we don’t represent ‘unvaxxed’ businesses; we represent businesses willing to serve ALL customers – vaccinated and unvaccinated.
      We’re currently taking business registrations and loading them into our system. The directory will go live right here at https://www.openforall.com.au on Monday 27 September.
      In the meantime, you can help us get businesses in your local area on board by delivering our flyers: https://www.openforall.com.au/flyers
      Thanks for your support!

    1. Thank you for letting us know, Emma. Our tech guru spotted a bug that may have caused issues with the download on some operating systems. It’s all fixed now! If you are still having problems, please contact us again.

  5. I am delighted to find so many Australians taking a stand against medical apartheid based on mandating experimental, dangerous and largely untested vaccines. I too am disgusted at the intimidation, bullying and harassment of government.
    Good on you for your courage!
    We welcome and will only support businesses who include all Australians, including after the pandemic. We have long memories!

    1. Hi Markus, I sent you an email. Feel free to send us a screenshot there.

      Just today we’ve updated the website to add browsing (by state and beyond) and there is search data for LGAs so if you were searching for a region, like Gold Coast, that will be present now.

  6. The ANZAC and Eureka Stockade spirit is alive and well among real Australians who will never succumb to the type of tyranny which is being attempted in this country. Australians are a rare and extremely strong breed who have the strength and power to rise up and take back their country when the need arises.
