One of the longest running charity quests in Australia!
The Tunarama Ambassador Quest - formerly known as Miss Tunarama - was part of our very first Festival in 1962 with a record 28 entrants. It was designed to give 'young ladies' an opportunity to support local charities with the winner automatically entered into the Miss South Australia Quest. The Quest has moved forward from those more innocent times and evolved into an opportunity for local people to learn new skills whilst still raising money for, and supporting, a wide range of charitable organisations on the Lower Eyre Peninsula.
Entrants must be aged 18 or over on entry, resident of the Lower Eyre Peninsula and we welcome men & women from all backgrounds.
Throughout the quest each entrant raises funds for their chosen Eyre Peninsula based charity or not-for-profit organisation. A panel of independent judges choose the Community Ambassador who represents the Tunarama Festival and Port Lincoln at various events over the following year, along with other awards given for reaching specific targets such as Highest Fundraiser.

Message from the 2020/2021 Tunarama Ambassador Belinda Currie
Hi, I'm Belinda Currie and I'm the 2020 / 2021 Tunarama Ambassador.
Taking part in the 2020 Ambassador Quest was one of the most unexpectedly rewarding things I've ever done. Apart from raising much needed funds for my chosen charity - the Royal Flying Doctor - the experience proved to be life-changing. I've developed so much confidence in every aspect of my life as well as contributed to the community in ways I didn't even know you could!
I urge anyone considering taking this journey to do so. You definitely won't regret it.
