You may have noticed that Gumtree looks a little bit different now.

The website is celebrating it's 10th birthday by getting a complete makeover and making your buying and selling experience more enjoyable.


We've been using Gumtree for years and we have to be honest, there have been some very odd things we've seen advertised on the website.

The head honchos have noticed these strange ads too and have decided to release a list of the weirdest things that users have actually sold on Gumtree over the last 10 years.

Prepare yourselves, guys, things are about a bit kooky...

1. A Nice Bottle Of Fresh French Air

Yep, you read that correctly.

A woman sold a variety of glass bottles filled with air from France on Gumtree for about $15 a pop!


2. A British Army Tank From The 1960's

A man from Perth decided to sell his vintage British army tank for a whopping $85,000 on Gumtree last year.

The 73-year-old man told WA Today that people thought he was a little crazy, but the tank is "a bit awkward changing gears, but it goes alright."
