Infrastructure connecting community

We believe vibrant cities are born of a balance between philanthropy, commercialism and visionary thinking.
It is our vision to change the game. To change the way utilities are implemented in Australian buildings, lowering the costs for residents and contributing profits back into the community.

Long Tail Property’s mission is to transform the way Australians connect their utilities and contribute to a better community. It is our aim to help the top not-for-profits in Australia leverage their large national property and social assets to generate income and become less reliant on donations. Our ‘why’ is to support those who help make the world a better place, do more good in the world. Our commercial vision is to share the profits that we generate together with the not-for-profit, to benefit those initiatives which help improve peoples’ lives.


How we do this



Aggregating energy and broadband supply enables us to offer competitive rates to residents through lower network charges and improved operating costs.

As a leader in smart technology, we can offer residents a better service experience and streamline costs.

We select the brands with the highest service levels and negotiate discounts across our portfolio, passing the savings onto all residents and benefiting the community.



Long Tail is 100% committed to transparency. A minimum of 10%, and a maximum of 45% of profits generated from a building go towards supporting the community.

Through our dashboard, residents can see exactly how their purchases have contributed, and even vote on where their contributions are needed most.



Monthly statements allow residents to see the community points accumulated,

opportunities to get involved and vote on where contributions are best made. 


We identified the problem of cities being increasingly hostile environments for individuals and families and the solution to help support these communities.


'We don't believe in charity' says CEO Vanessa Cox 'we believe in raising the capacity for resourcefulness, creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit to thrive within inner city communities. Creating communities where families can flourish and both Mum and Dad can be active and stimulated members of the community'

Inspiring developers to contribute beyond the building is an important part of Long Tail's success. Long Tail takes up to 45% of profits generated from the building for:

  • improving the local area with safe park initiatives

  • helping to reduce homelessness

  • improving the well being of isolated children 

  • girls and woman at risk
