Yelp in the Land of Oz

As we ramp up our efforts we plan to focus on Sydney and Melbourne first, and as some astute press have noted, we're also looking to get this party started in other major cities as well. But you don't have to wait for us, users can log on to the site from anywhere in Australia. For those who live by their smartphones we have a spiffy little Yelp app available for iPhone and Android devices as well as our robust mobile site.

For all you small business owners out there, be sure to claim your free Yelp business profile page at and learn all about the appropriate ways to use the site and tools to help you make the most of your listing. (free photo uploads, business description etc.)

Looking back on Yelp's international expansion, I can't think of a city where there was as much interest in when we'd be launching as there is here. So to that we say — The FTR (first to review) honor is yours for the taking and we hope you like what we've built for you. Please shoot your comments and suggestions to — we're interested in hearing what you think of the site.
