The Australian Rodeo Queen Quest empowers rural women by providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to promote the sport they love in Australia and abroad.

Over the past 24 years, ladies from all over Australia have travelled to the Gold Coast in Queensland to participate in the ARQ Quest where an independent panel of judges; comprising of civic leaders, rodeo personnel and business people, are selected to judge the contestants.

Entrants take part in planned promotions and a rigorous schedule over the course of one week, where they are judged on personality, appearance, and horsemanship.  Speeches, modelling, horsemanship patterns, written examinations and interviews are all examples of the types of activities where the judges will score the entrants during their final week of judging.

While the judging schedule may seem daunting, the tension of actual competition is eased by media interviews, luncheons, dinners, promotions and other events planned just for fun. 

At the end of the week, the points are completed and tallied and on the final night with the final scores handed down, Ms Rodeo Queen of Australia is awarded her title. The major prize includes a whirlwind 21 day overseas trip (t&c's apply), which includes airfares, accommodation and transport to the Calgary Stampede in Canada, Dallas Fort Worth, Denver, Cheyenne Frontier Days and Los Angeles in the USA.

The Australian Rodeo Queen Quest looks forward to making many more wonderful memories as the years progress and the amazing young women who have represented both the Australian Rodeo Queen Quest and the National Rodeo Council of Australia continue to enter the competition.
