Get to know us


Hi I am Vanessa owner of Woodland Gumnuts.


Here’s a little background, I am 28 and engaged to my amazing fiance Khris. We have two beautiful boys Michael and Dustin and now our gorgeous little girl Daisy, who has just completed our family. We also have two fur kids Ruby and Blue, oh and I can’t forget our pet fish Dude.
We live in a small country town called Yarrawonga located in Victoria, I have lived in this area my whole life, growing up on our family farm which is one of my very favourite places to spend time now with my own little family.
I’m lucky enough to have my biggest supporter working beside me, my beautiful mumma Pam. She is the owner of Bella FemmeNess Country Chic; the talented maker of all the beautiful bibs, burp cloths, aprons, pram liners, bonnets, booties and beanies that we stock in our store.

I started this little business back in 2018 after I gave birth to our first little man Michael and it has grown from their. I have a real passion for children's learning, arts, crafts, sensory play, baby play as well as special gifts for spoiling our little bubbas & mummas.
We especially love wooden toys, exploring, learning and trying new things whilst making it fun. I also thought it was important stock a range of products to support breastfeeding mums, as it’s such a special journey that I really enjoy myself.

Our reason behind starting Woodland Gumnuts was that we didn’t have anyone offering these types of products in our small town. We wanted to be able to make them available for others to enjoy as well. It has always been important to us to compliment other local businesses so we can all support eachother. We stock products from many amazing companies offering an array of products to spoil everyone from babies, toddlers, kiddies and of course mummas xo
