Spark Athletics - about us


Blundstone was established in Tasmania in 1870 and despite growing to become one of the world’s most recognisable boot brands the company remains Tasmanian. Our head office and manufacturing base for all our gumboots are located in Hobart, in Tasmania, Australia’s island state.

Our Tasmanian history, heritage and people have helped shape the way our boots have evolved; perhaps it takes a unique place to inspire the development of a unique boot.

Here are a few of the reasons as to why Tasmania is so special.
