Retired tennis superstar Ashleigh Barty stole the spotlight as she proudly displayed her baby bump while launching Australian Made Week 2023 at a local play equipment manufacturer on the Sunshine Coast.
As the ambassador for this year’s Australian Made Week, Barty plays a vital role in spreading awareness about the numerous advantages of purchasing domestic products. During the campaign launch day, the three-time Grand Slam champion delighted in spending time with kids, all while eagerly anticipating the arrival of her first child. Donning a comfortable white sweatshirt, Barty proudly showcased her blossoming baby bump. She announced her pregnancy in early January, so we can expect the baby to arrive soon.

The May 15-21 Australian Made Week emphasizes the significance of supporting local businesses and buying Australian-made products. Now in its third year, the event celebrates the craftsmanship of Australian makers and growers while encouraging consumers to look for the iconic green and gold kangaroo logo.
The Australian Made Campaign holds tremendous potential for economic growth. The campaign’s organizers revealed that if every Australian household were to spend just an additional $10 per week on Australian-made products, it would inject a staggering $4.8 billion into the economy annually. This additional revenue could create up to 9,500 new jobs, strengthening local communities and fostering sustainable development.
