2019 Weipa Fishing Classic

2019 Weipa Fishing Classic


Held annually over the weekend of the Queen’s birthday in June, the popular Weipa Fishing Classic is the biggest event in Cape York. With the event run solely for community benefit, Sodexo was  proud to sponsor the event this year, contributing their support to a number of local community and sporting groups. 

With three days of non-stop fishing action, activities for the kids, live entertainment, market stalls, food and fun for the whole family, the event is popular with avid fishermen and the public alike, drawing many visitors to the region. With over 10,000 in attendance over the 3 days and nights of entertainment, the Sodexo team marquis was certainly busy chatting with locals and selling premium Kuditj jerky, which was a big hit with all the punters.

The Texas style 12 hr brisket and pulled pork burger stand was a real highlight for punters. The locals were welcomed to come and try the tasty delicacies prepared by Graeme Parnham, Senior Regional Head Chef and Jessica Wheeler – Function Chef. For the second year running the Famous Kudijt Beef Jerky has been a massive hit!
