Every September, people from all over Australia gather ‘round the BBQ to show support for Aussie Farmers doing it tough. The Great Outback BBQ is an opportunity to do something fun and fundraise to make a real difference. Get the barbie sizzling with sausages or warm up the “billy” and ask your friends, family, colleagues for a donation to Frontier Services. This is a great opportunity to connect with others for a good cause! Last year, you raised $187,000 making Great Outback BBQ history!
Who Does the Great Outback BBQ help?
By hosting a Great Outback BBQ, you will help provide community resilience, recovery, volunteering and support to our farmers in remote Australia. Aussie Farmers living in remote Australia deserve a hand up not a hand out. By hosting a BBQ, you can support those farmers and graziers in need as well as help mobilise more people and volunteers to lend a helping hand.
When do I host a Great Outback BBQ?
When you registered you will have already set a date for your BBQ but this can be changed on your registration page if you need to. The month for the Great Outback BBQ is September and by banking your funds before 31st October you will go into the draw for some great prizes!
