About the Tannum Crab Classic

An event that not only helps our families in need but a weekend for men to get together and support each other for friendship and for those who need bloke time for support if in troubled times
An Amazing Event Helping our Children in NEED

The Tannum Crab Classic is in its 11th year of preparation by supporting local families in need of medical equipment. The weekend getaway for the 50 blokes is the opportunity to get their name and bragging rights on the annual trophy for the biggest mud crab caught.


Throughout the years it has always been a few grams in the crab which will be a deciding factor of becoming in the top 10 spot for that year so it gets very competitive.


Our Golf Day Sponsor  Boyne Island Bait & Tackle. This is the biggest money raiser down the beach, showing who is the real golfer as they battle it out for closest ball to the flag while avoiding the water hazard present.

While the men get to camp-out and catch the crabs, the ladies get to dress up and go-out for the Ladies Night Out. 2019 contributing $10,000 to the TCC final tally. With a dress theme, prizes and raffles on the night there is more than one reason for a sold-out venue; lucky door prizes, drinks on arrival, food, entertainment, fashion parades, auctions and of course best dressed prize. This event is coorindated by the gorgeous Brenda Smith and a crew of helpers to make this night a great success.

The Sunday afternoon is located at the Tannum Sands Seagulls Rugby League Club, Dennis Park. The local community come together and opens their wallets to buy raffle tickets and bid on a mud crab to enter the world famous crab race. The family orientated afternoon is a great way to bring the community together and help out those in need.  It is a great day for family and friends with live music all day, jumping castles and more. 

We look forward to seeing you all there for another success year of raising money to help our kids in need.
