Keep it Local


Small businesses are the heart and soul of Waverley and it’s this community who has been hit particularly hard by the effects of COVID-19. As part of our response to this, Waverley Council and the Bondi & Districts Chamber of Commerce have launched the Keep It Local website

Keep It Local is Waverley's one-stop shop for local businesses. It's a dedicated online database for Waverley businesses to list information about what they're offering to the community. The platform makes it easy for our local residents to search and source from local suppliers. The website is free for businesses to register and manage their listings for ongoing updates.

Register your business now

We’re strongly encouraging all small businesses to register their details so that they can be part of this exciting initiative. It only takes a few minutes to sign up:

  1. Log onto the Keep It Local directory
  2. Click the 'Add Listing' button on the top right-hand corner
  3. Fill in the details about your business
  4. Add a quick video about your business (see tips here) for social media promotion

Local Legends Competition

To celebrate our small businesses, we're launching the Local Legends Competition! We're asking the community to vote for their favourite local business for the chance to win $100 Keep It Local vouchers. Over the next three weeks, three winners will be selected at random each week and will be able to choose a business listed on the Keep It Local website to spend their voucher with.

Our businesses haven't been left out of the fun either! At the end of the competition period, the top three local business legends with the highest number of votes will each win $500 Keep It Local vouchers as well!

How locals can vote:

  1. Vote for your favourite local business here
  2. Follow our Facebook and Instagram for winner announcements every Friday (business winners will be announced separately in mid-November)

For our businesses:

If you haven't already registered your business on the Keep It Local website, jump on board to avoid missing out! Be sure to spread the word and help us get the community talking about our local business legends. We've created a competition promo pack below for you to download and share online or in-store.

The competition will close on 12 November 2020. Entrants must reside in Waverley to win. Please read our Terms and Conditions for more information.
