The Unexpected Guest
Here at the unexpected guest we are firm believers in doing what you absolutely love. That’s why we started creating extraordinary breakfast products (we love breakfast).
We also like doing business with people who are equally as passionate about what they do, from our ingredient suppliers to our lovely web designers.
We are committed to creating sensational products, supporting small businesses, organic and fair trade practices and having a great time doing it.
Our company is Wambool Dreaming Pty Ltd trading as The Unexpected Guest. The two names have significance and illustrates our worldview and the importance of strong values.
Wambool is the Wiradjuri word for the Macquarie River in Central West NSW, the river is a food supply, a playground and for our community, life was forever linked to the Wambool. The water needed to be and commanded respect due the very present dangers that exist in and around the river. The pure essence of fresh water was highly valued, and fish provided a good supply of omega 3’s and protein.
When people read our business The Unexpected Guest, immediately their face breaks into a smile. Growing up in the country provided a relaxed and casual existence which was simple. Our family always greeted guests/ visitors with a cup of tea and whatever food was available. The practice of ensuring people were relaxed when they visited your home continued into adulthood and we maintained the value of ‘always making room at your table for the unexpected guest’.
The Unexpected Guest gave us the opportunity to continue with clean, healthy foods and having Australian Certified Organic products was an absolute no brainer.
The logo we created is rooted in our experiences of growing up on country where there was an abundance of wildlife and the kangaroo was and is a prominent feature. The kangaroo paw represents this prominence and the dots flowing through the paw represent the Wambool river (aka Macquarie river) flowing through Wailwan country.
