Where would I be without TikTok? Probably a millionaire because I’m glued to this fkn app and I would be a million times more productive without it.
With TikTok even opening an Australian office in Sydney, it’s clear that there’s no lack of love for the app over here and there’s probably heaps of y’all in the same boat as me (hopefully you’re not all as broke as me tho, that would be really sad).
But this article is not about career advice (although we have some of those if you’re interested [LINK]). It’s about giving you our recs for the best TikToks to follow from the land down under.
Janet Louise Reifenstein aka rifenstine is one of the best makeup artists out there. Period. Not only does she know how to beat her face like a pro, her vids are endlessly watchable because she’s so charming.
Despite being able to change her looks like a chameleon, she keeps it real: she’s weird, she’s funny, and she doesn’t give a fuck.
Albury icon Lannan Eacott got his start on YouTube, where he got big making vids about Fortnite. He then made his way to TikTok, where rather than making gaming content, he mostly does comedy, a lot of it about TikTok itself. His takedown of “TikTok gurus” is particularly great too. Check him out.

Stepha Jade (@stephajade)
Stepha’s contagious smile and feel-good videos make her an essential Aussie TikToker to follow. Posting a mix of fitness, family, dancing and comedy content, she’s an irrepressible force for good.

Ricky Chainz (@thechainzfamily)
Famous for his “Hip-Hop Granny” series he made with his grandma Huijin, Sydneysider Ricky produces heaps of hilarious videos and is a champion of wholesome comedy. Get amongst him.

No list of Aussie TikTok personalities would be complete without a mention of ianz95 (real name: Ian Roze). You’ve probably seen his super expressive face and classic bitchy comebacks on TikTok compilations before, even if you don’t have the app–Brisbane-based TikTok king Ian is a must-follow.
