Along with his environmental endeavours, Handley’s rugged looks and cheeky smile have landed him appearances in campaigns for Indigenous tourism and Tourism Queensland, and as the iconic Australian iron man on cereal ads.
The co-founder of Australian bespoke accessories brand The Daily Edited, Alyce Tran, is also surprisingly spouseless.
The pint-sized pocket rocket, 34, wasn’t always in fashion. She studied law and commerce at the University of Adelaide then worked as a lawyer in Perth and Sydney before quitting her job in 2015 to focus on the accessories brand full-time.
The monogram mogul, whose brand also runs homewares brand In The Roundhouse, recently raised and donated a six-figure sum to bushfire relief.
Having split from her longtime partner last March, Tran is yet to introduce anyone special to her tight-knit circle of pals.
Tom Snow, the infrastructure fund manager and son of Terry (an Australian Financial Review Rich Lister who built his $1 billion fortune from the Canberra Airport), says he’s an unlikely candidate for the coveted singles list.
“I guess I’m a rare find, I’m a gay man with three kids,” he tells The Sun-Herald. “An ideal partner for me would be a man who is after an immediate family.”
Through his business career, the junior Snow has held a range of roles including director of Perth Airport, Canberra Airport, the Port of Adelaide and Etihad Stadium, as well as being chair of the Canberra Convention Bureau.
He is also a Rhodes Scholar, a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a proud father of eight-year-old twins Angus and Sybilla and six-year-old Teddy.
Sydney sportsman and former track and field star Trae Williams – whose personal best in the 100 metres is 10.10 seconds – made his Rugby Sevens debut for Australia last month.
Nicknamed “Quadzilla” and boasting the biggest quads in world sport, the 22-year-old athlete is “single and ready to mingle” according to a Sevens representative. So is his teammate Tim Anstee, 20.
It’s little surprise the pair are without partners while they’re busy training to qualify in Australian men’s Olympic squad for the Tokyo games.
Sydney scenester and Mara & Mine co-founder Tamie Ingham, a member of the Ingham’s chicken family, is also flying solo. Having returned to Sydney after a stint in Los Angeles, Ingham split from long-time partner and family friend Luke Adams.
Since her return to Sydney last year, Tamie hasn’t let a breakup drag her down. Her coveted shoe label showed to fashion buyers at Paris fashion week last June.
Beauty, brains and obvious business savvy Alison Egan is the mastermind behind Sparkling White Smile. Founded in 2014 here in Sydney, Alison’s multi-million dollar teeth whitening empire spans the nation, with an impressive 27 individual franchises. Not bad for a 25-year-old who grew up in Sydney’s West and lives in a harbourfront penthouse.
Former Cleo Bachelor of the Year finalist Julian Tobias is still on the market after being linked to a number of high-profile women. Tobias boasts a hefty resume including modelling, Whizz App investor and co-founder of floating beach club The Island. It might be time he settled down.
