The Great Australian Scarecrow Competition

Weird.  Wacky.  Pretty.  Scary.  Bring it on!  The inaugural Great Australian Scarecrow Competition is seeking entries for the best Scarecrow in the land. 

It’s nearly time to harvest crispy, crunchy apples and succulent pears from around Victoria that go into making our delicious Flying Brick ciders. We need your help to scare off the birds – they like munching on yummy fresh fruit as well.  Join in the fun and show off your creative flair!

Open to all ages!  Grab your friends, school buddies, parents, work colleagues and let your imagination take over.   Participants are not just creating their ‘scary’ conceptions for bragging rights only – there are some seriously great prizes to be won if judged as the best by the official judging team. 

All scarecrows will be displayed for the world to see, admire and vote for - along the fence of Flying Brick Cider Co, Bellarine Highway, Wallington.  







2 x $100 Dining Vouchers to enjoy at Flying Brick Cider House to be won.
