The mooloolaBaBQ festival is a community event on Australia Day Weekend, Saturday 27th January, at the Mooloolaba Wharf precinct from 10am - 8pm, embracing everything that people in the multi-cultural Australian community love about the great Australian family & friends activity… the BBQ.
To celebrate this Aussie love of firing up the barbie, we have brought together a bbq event for all the senses to incorporate a wide variety of cultures, styles of cooking, flavours & cuts. From Seafood to Pork to Beef to Lamb, whether Chard, Grill, Smoked, Roasted, On a Spit or marinated… this is sure to have something to tempt all tastes.
The mooloolaBaBQ festival will be hosting a National Championship Series Barbecue Competition in conjunction with the Australasian Barbecue Alliance where Australia's best teams will be invited to compete for National Championship Points & $6,000 Cash & Prizes. You can see how it is all created, unfortunately you can't sample the teams competition food, however, Cotton Tree Meats will be on site cooking in conjunction with the competitors for you to sample the meats as each of the 4 protein hand-ins happen.
