Miss Australia: A Nation’s Quest

While most remember the glitz and glamour, the Miss Australia Quest was also the country’s longest running and most successful charity event.  It combined the glittering spectacle of gowns and crowns with fundraising, the promotion of disability awareness, and community service.  This popular exhibition explored the history of the Miss Australia Quest through personal stories from contestants, sponsors, fundraisers and people with disabilities and their families.
