GALLERY: Miss Rodeo Australia crowned in Warwick

HOPEFUL Miss Rodeo Australia entrants weren't the only ones dolled up last night as more than 100 people joined them to watch the 2018 queen be crowned.

Held at the Australian Rodeo Heritage Centre in Warwick, the evening started with canapes in the foyer before attendees moved into the function room at the top of the centre.

 

Each of the entrants completed their speech on Australian topics and explaining what rodeo means to them.

After the question and answer round, 2017 Miss Rodeo Australia Emma Deicke addressed the crowd.

It was then that the 2018 Miss Rodeo Australia was crowned, Dakota Michealis representing Petersborough.

Two Warwick competitors took out three sashes between them.

Ashleigh Grant, who was representing Warwick Rodeo, was named runner up and also took out the fundraising category.

Fellow local Tammie Conroy representing Taroom was named the winner of the horsemanship category.

Family, friends and rodeo figures were among the crowd, enjoying the joyful celebration of the grand tradition of rodeo in Australia.
