What else provides an exciting place where the community from each extreme of the scale--country to city--can come together for 2 great days out in the Noosa Hinterland, to experience the cream top of the best agricultural produce and animal husbandry on the Sunshine Coast, with the opportunity to experience inspiring displays of traditional artwork and original workmanship, participate in great competitions, activities fun rides, novelties, and delicious food...and much, much more, all in true-blue Aussie Style?

This year the Noosa Show Society will be hosting its 96th Show, after commencing in 1910. Over the years, it had many ups and downs, but in the early 1980s, Bob Abbot took Presidency. He rescued the Show from over $10,000 debt with 4 years of hard work and careful budgeting. Now, Les Andreason, who began as Treasurer in the late 1980s, took over the Presidency in 1999 and makes sure the Noosa Country Show runs well each year in September.

The Noosa Show celebrates its Centenary in 2010.

Why the Big Noosa BBQ?

As a non-profit community organization, and the pressing issue of public liability insurance, premiums have risen from $3,000 to nearly $20,000 per year, which has knocked out the profit, if any, from the Show, preventing essential expansion and improvement. We thank you for supporting this event to keep the Show being the integral part it already plays in our community.

Kerrie, a very talented woman, is a long sought after international model, a highly proficient actor in many theatre productions, and has appeared in countless US television productions, commercials and films. Chosen to represent Australia in Elite Models "Look of the Year" competition, she also won the starring role as co-host on the No.1 rated television show Perfect Match, becoming a household name in Australia & starring in over 800 episodes. Kerrie has recently been asked to be the Media face of Ultraceuticals, an all-Australian skincare range, which sells nationally and soon worldwide.
Thankyou to all these wonderful people who donated of their time to make the day a great one:
