Ready, set, bake

Since 1959, when the first State Cookery Contest was held as a way of raising money,  the State Cookery Contest continues.

Entries are initially judged at Branch level, then Divisional, with finalists from approximately 16 classes delivering their cakes, slices, biscuits, jams and chutneys to the State Conference for final judging.
