So exciting to have a good clothesline !!

The delivery was so fast … thank you. Then the instructions were clear for putting up the clothesline, so no hassles. We had it up in a few hours. Digging the hole to put it in was the hardest part. Oh! to have a strong straight line to hang washing on…it is bliss. Only thing better would be to have someone else to hang out for me.

51 Rotary Clothesline

It's fantastic. Operation is so easy and the colour Woodland Grey blends in much better than the green on the old clothes line

Great Aussie Made Clothesline !

This clothesline was incredibly easy to install. It works perfectly and after my first load of washing on the line I was mesmerised by watching the unit twirling in the breeze. The line was pretty well pre tensioned before so no adjustments were made however having a closer look of the lines, if they do slacken, it could be a bit of a chore to tighten them up again. That would be my only concern. All in all a great clothes line and I highly recommend the Austral 51 Foldaway. If you have the space, go with this one, the biggest.

Disappointed

We decided to buy an Australian made product on your advice. We wish we had bought a Hills Hoist instead. 2 friends have since told me of the problems they had with theirs. I did tell you about one and you laughed it off. I haven’t used it that much and the lines are already sagging . I know it was installed properly and the lines tightened properly so know no problems there. I no I now have to live with it but terribly disappointed

Hi Helen, Thanks for your review and comments. All folding rotary style clotheslines come with exactly the same type of plastic polycore cord as this allows them to be folded up and removed if need be. Hills have exactly the same cord as Austral and their lines stretch over time and need small adjustments just like Austral does. With Hills being made in China now and their products not the same as old Australian made Hills clotheslines, the only way you are going to get lines that never sag is go to the traditional galvanised type with metal lines. If you need any tips on tensioning the lines please let us know. Regards, Kate

Perfect for Drying Clothes

Really easy & simple to install. A minor issue with a plastic bracket that arrived damaged, but once installed, it doesn't affect the quality or use of the clothesline and we are super stoked to be proudly displaying our Lifestyle clothesline

Makes washing day a happy day!

I love my brand new Austral 51 Rotary Clothesline. It was very easy to install and the online video made it so straightforward. Lifestyle were very easy to deal with and they promptly answered all of my questions. I have gone from a clothesline that was mounted on the wall, which was too high to reach, didn't have enough line space to hang my sheets and took ages for my clothes to dry, to a clothesline that easily does all of the bedding plus at least 3 loads of washing. I can adjust the height, my clothes dry in no time at all and they smell so fresh. This is what I consider to be washing day perfection!

Austral Foldaway 51 Rotary Clothesline

Couldn't be happier. All my expectations were met. Clothesline fits my sheets and when collapsed takes up no space at all. Lifestyle Clotheslines were great to deal with, any questions I had were immediately responded to and delivery was within specified time frame despite Covid 19 lockdowns

    Can I remove this clothesline from the ground if I need the space for a party? Yes, all folding head rotary clotheslines come with a ground socket, this is what is cemented into the ground at the time of installation. The post of the clothesline simply slots into this socket and locks. Unlock to remove. A cap is provided to place over the socket when the clothesline is removed.   Can I get a special colour for my rotary clothesline? No, only the colours that are shown on each product page. Austral clotheslines are now available in three colours.   Do the arms of the folding rotary clothesline fold up or fold down? On all folding head rotary clotheslines that we sell the arms fold upwards towards the centre pole. How does the Austral Foldaway 51 compare to other, similar clotheslines? To compare all of the Austral Foldaway 51's features against Hills and Daytek clotheslines that are similar, then visit our Austral Foldaway 51 clothesline comparison chart. Can I get a waterproof cover for my rotary clothesline? Yes, if there is a cover suitable for the model you are looking at on our website there will be an option on the product page for a ‘Clothesline Cover’. There will also be an image of the cover on the same page. Storage covers are also available for when the clothesline is folded up. Can I order an extra ground socket so that I can have two different locations for my clothesline? Yes, you will find the Austral Ground Socket available separately under our ‘Installing and Accessories’ category or simply use the search function towards the top of the page. How easy are they to install? If you are reasonably handy then you can do this yourself. All models come with complete instructions to do the job successfully. They come in two sections, the top half is already pre-wired ready to go. If you are unsure we do offer an installation service in most capital cities around Australia.
