Lady Elliot Island, the southernmost coral cay of the Great Barrier Reef and nesting site of the loggerhead turtle, is the kind of place that most people can only dream of visiting... let us take you there to spot the loggerhead turtle hatchlings (just like the ones featured on this pattern!) as they scurry down the sand and into the beautiful lagoon that surrounds this magnificent jewel off the coast of Bargara, home of Tribe Tropical.

The loggerhead turtle is an endangered species; successful breeding at Mon Repos is vital to their survival.


Suits are true to size and correspond to the age of the child, i.e. an average two year old will fit a size 2 and so on. If anything sizing is on the larger side of the age, rather than smaller side.

Lady Elliot girls swimsuit

Lovely swimsuits. Great quality and fits beautifully on my 3yr old.

Great Swim wear and hats

My grandchildren have been wearing Tribe Tropical swimsuits for 2 years and they love them. I do too - the quality is excellent and colours stay bright and fit so well. So we have just ordered again and the service is prompt and efficient. And is Australian! Isn’t that a good thing.🇦🇺


Beautiful fabric great fit


Just received my order of girls long sleved swimsuit in a size 3. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the print, the design and the fact it is sunsafe. It also arrived very quickly. Thankyou Tribe Tropical. I am looking forward to ordering again. 😊

Almost perfect

I got the bundle and it is almost perfect - the print is gorgeous, the fabric high quality, and my daughter loves it. She looks so cute in her matching hat and sunglasses. Outstanding customer service too! My only problem is that the bottom is too skimpy and for my skinny daughter it shows a bit of cheek. I'd love to see full coverage on the bottom, or even shorts to provide more sun protection.

Hi Emma, thanks for your lovely feedback on the print, fabric & customer service, it’s much appreciated! Sorry to hear about the fit concerns though, this would usually indicate that the suit is too big so a different size would be recommended - please feel free to send the suit back in exchange for another size if you’d like to consider this. We will be releasing new styles with more leg coverage soon also so please keep in touch! Thanks again for your support :)

My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.

I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.

Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
— Amy M.
Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical. 

Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain. 

Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing. 

No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
