OUR
HISTORY

Over 35 years ago, Lifestyle Australia started producing t-shirts for clients based in North Queensland.  Fast forward 35 years, we’re now an established enterprise offering innovative branded merchandise solutions for leading brands within Australia and abroad!

We have lift off in North Queensland and Lifestyle Australia is born!

Time to grow as we acquire another business to establish our brand in North Queensland.

Time to move! Relocation to Brisbane to produce Australia’s largest souvenir range.

It’s all about efficiency with our new automatic screen printing machine, (Australia’s first in fact!)

We need a helping hand – our second automatic screen printing machine is installed!

Exciting times for LSA with the introduction of new textures and versatility in application techniques with the addition of our digital sublimation machine.

Our full-service offering takes off with new and exciting design, sourcing and delivery capabilities for a range of clients.

Our custom-built production facility of 3500sqm opens in Yatala, boasting natural light and state of the art machinery to assist with environmentally friendly processes and practices.

Another exciting turn for the company as we commit to ethical sourcing and align with industry partners and suppliers.
