74 - Jane Cay on extending out one of Australia's most successful online retailers into the world of short stays

Posted February 15, 2023


Jane Cay is an Australian entrepreneur and founder of the fashion retailer, Birdsnest.

She launched the company in 2004 from her hometown of Cooma in rural New South Wales, and it has since grown into one of Australia’s most successful e-commerce businesses, with a strong focus on customer service, personal styling and body positivity.

In mid 2022, Jane and the team at Birdsnest opened Nest Stays, two lovingly renovated, sustainably-minded heritage terrace homes, each accommodating up to 6 guests, also located in Cooma.

The properties are designed to provide guests with a comfortable and stylish home away from home, drawing on Birdsnest’s signature modern, understated aesthetic.

In a relatively short period of time, Jane has achieved more than most could expect to achieve in a lifetime, and it was an absolute pleasure to chat with her earlier this week.
