Jon + Rebecca Tarrant

Jon + Rebecca Tarrant


Jon and Rebecca Tarrant are the brother-sister duo behind Queensland based tech-travel start up YONDA, with careers in travel spanning over 20 years.

Jon started his first travel and resort marketing business at the age of 19 from the spare bedroom of his Gold Coast beachside flat. He founded and grew his business into a multi-faceted, travel industry leader with an annual turnover of over $25 million. Rebecca joined Jon in the business, which was eventually sold as part of an acquisition. 


The dynamic duo took out the Australian Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 (Tourism & Hospitality) and Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2018. In 2020, they decided it was time to take another risk of passion, launching their latest venture – YONDA.


Jon and Rebecca’s talent and passion not only lies in travel and holiday experiences, but also in investing and cultivating the people who work alongside them. They are now proud to be part of Dancing CEOs in 2022, and to support the invaluable work of Women’s Legal Service.
