Gathered Here offers a huge time-saving option for those after a fuss-free will. But if your circumstances are more complex than the norm, you might still need to seek out the help of an estate-planning expert.
Gathered Here wills are free to write and update – some services charge if you need to make changes.
These online wills are fast to complete and cover the essentials.
Better than nothing – millions of Aussies go without a will altogether. So, this free option could make a huge difference when it comes to settling your estate.
One size doesn't fit all – you may need to consult a professional if your situation is more complicated than average.
Some may struggle with the process required as you'll need to complete online, download and print before getting it signed and witnessed.
Gathered Here aims to be a one-stop shop for anything to do with end-of-life. Once you've got your will sorted, you can also find and compare funeral directors online or get a fixed-fee quote for probate. Here are some of the additional services on offer at Gathered Here:

Funerals. Whether you're planning your own funeral or one for a loved one, you can compare the prices of funeral directors in your area and read reviews from previous customers to help you decide.
Celebrants. Search, compare and choose a funeral celebrant to help you write and deliver a thoughtful funeral.

Our team of life insurance experts have researched and rated dozens of policies as part of our Finder Awards and published 250+ guides to make it easier for you to compare.
Unlike other comparison sites, we're not owned by an insurer. That means our opinions are our own and we work with lots of life insurance brands, making it easier for you to find a good deal.

Since 2016, we've helped 270,000+ people find life insurance by explaining your cover options, simply and clearly. We'll never ask for your number or email. We're here to help you make a decision.
Frequently asked questions about Gathered Here wills
Gathered Here was founded by Colin Wong, a former King & Wood Mallesons solicitor.
Yes, the Public Trustee in your state or territory offers free will services and you can also find online platforms with free will templates.
It depends. DIY will kits can cover the essentials of your estate planning needs at a low cost but if your needs are considered complex, you may need to consult with a lawyer. Blended families, self-managed super funds and even large life insurance payouts might be more than a free will kit can handle.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We are committed to our readers and stands by our editorial principles
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labeling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
We make money by featuring products on our site. Compensation received from the providers featured on our site can influence which products we write about as well as where and how products appear on our page, but the order or placement of these products does not influence our assessment or opinions of them, nor is it an endorsement or recommendation for them.
Products marked as 'Top Pick', 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
