We found a mixture of people online on AMM Australia, and it is most definitely orientated towards casual dating, so if you’re looking for an authentic relationship, this is not the dating site for you!
There are Matchmaker Australian singles as well as couples, although you’ll find more men than women on the site. Given that there is quite a lot of explicit material, the site is strictly adult-only, but with weak security settings there seem to be a lot of fake profiles, who are likely there to browse rather than to make any real connections or find a hookup.
AMM providers lots of space to complete your online page information, but we found a lot of pages were barely completed, so it’s not always easy to see who a user is, or whether they are a suitable hookup for you.
The Australian Adult Matchmaker site has plenty of space for personal information, so some accounts are very detailed, where you can find out lots of information before deciding whether to make contact. You can return to your account at any time to make changes, and users can see your cover photo whether or not you have matched.
With the flexibility to skip questions and lack of mandatory information, it seems that a lot of AMM profiles are left relatively blank, so it’s hit and miss whether they are worth looking at. For ordinary users, signing up itself is straightforward and quick – we only had to provide necessary details, and could immediately start using the Matchmaker online site.
Search Features on Adult Match Maker
The search features on Matchmaker are basic, so you might have a hard time finding something specific if you’re looking for a guaranteed hookup. You can search for information such as age, gender and location, but there isn’t any scope to use more advanced searches.
Given how few people fill in all of their account information, it can take a lot of browsing to find a compatible date!
Our Adultmatchmaker review found that there are minimal messaging options before upgrading, so you will either need to pay for a premium account or wait for a premium user to get in contact before you can send a communication.
Every Matchmaker text you send will use up credits, and if the person you contact ignores you, you don’t get a refund, so it’s wise to be cautious about who you send texts to and spend your credits on.
Winks are free, and there is a chatroom service you can use, but until you have a mutual connection, you cannot initiate a conversation.
Adult Match Maker Pricing
Our Adult Matchmaker review found four different subscription tiers to choose from – while Adult Matchmaker is free to join you will find that there is little you can do on the site before you need to pay:
Send up to four texts and eight winks per day, with two private photo galleries
Send up to twelve texts and twelve winks per day, with three private photo galleries and access to private messaging rooms
Send up to twenty-five texts and twenty-five winks per day, with five private photo galleries and access to private messaging rooms.
Postage Paid Subscription
Allows non-premium account holders to text you without the need to upgrade
Free vs Premium
- Registering on Matchmaker
- Creating your profile
- Sending winks (limited)
- Responding to messages (limited)
- Allowing non-premium account holders to text you
- Sending limited texts
- Sending limited winks
- Starting conversations

All in all, you will either have to upgrade to a premium account or only get in touch with people who have paid for a Postage Paid account to get any usefulness from the site.
Adult MatchMaker App
The Adult Match Maker Australia app doesn’t yet exist, so, unfortunately, your only option rather than using the platform on a desktop computer is to rely on the web version.
Some of the Matchmaker online features do not work on the mobile website version, so if you need to use the Help menu, change or manage your subscription or make any changes to your account – including cancelling it – you will have to wait until you can log in on a desktop browser.
Our Adult Match Maker review is disappointing; with the lack of any mobile app and the restrictions on free subscriptions make this less competitive than many of the Australian dating apps.
Given the hookup nature of the Matchmaker online site, it is easy to receive lots of messages, many of which are full-on, but the volume of people who are genuinely looking for a hookup seems small in comparison.
Watch out for invitations to message, that you will need to upgrade to be able to respond to; these profiles often disappear, and you’ll be left with a recurring subscription unless you manually login via a desktop to cancel the payments with your credit card provider.
