Contrary to common belief, young people ARE interested in nudism.
In charge of the YNOA are a group of entrepreneurial, forward-thinking and socially switched on young individuals eagerly growing a safe community of body accepting young Australians. Founders Dan Adamik and his partner Natasha Day in Queensland, Matt Lennon (found on Facebook as ‘Matto Nudo’) in New South Wales and Rebekah Lee in Victoria. We have representatives in SA, WA and Tassie as well.
The YNOA is largely in effect on Facebook and we know every one of our members is 100% genuine. How?
We’re well aware of the plethora of online groups that claim to be based on nudism. That's why we've created a safe and active community where:
- Everyone is ID verified
- A code of behaviour is enforced to ensure legitimacy
- Privacy law is respected
The YNOA operates a three-pronged effort on Facebook and our other social platforms.
- A public group which anyone can “Like”.
- The Secret Group. This is where most of our communication takes place.
- A dedicated group exclusively for women, which is administered solely by Natasha and Rebekah.
It may not be popular, but a line has to be drawn somewhere in order to ensure the integrity of this group in modern circles, and that for us is 40. End of story.

MORE THAN CLUBS AND RESORTS...
The overwhelming majority of us don’t feel welcome (even if you say we are) at Australia’s organised nudist resorts. That’s why we’re staying away and congregating instead on beaches and in our own small private events. Put more bluntly, the existential future of Australia’s nudist campgrounds and resorts unwilling to change is under a very dark cloud. But there is a ray of sunlight.
A long line of very public events are only getting bigger each year; such as the World Naked Bike Ride, Confest and the Sydney Skinny, to mention just one of the many organised nude swims which take place around Australia and New Zealand (and around the world) every year. Let’s not forget also the hugely public one-time displays such as the mass conceptual art projects envisaged by American artist Spencer Tunick, who drew thousands of mostly young people to pose nude in Melbourne in 2001 and on the steps of the Sydney Opera House in 2010.
We’re even making short, commercially available movies about nudism, organising naked ten-pin bowling nights, parties in hotel suites and private houses, laser tag, roller skating and more. Make no mistake about it. Young people are not afraid of getting naked together in non-sexual environments.
