Event Details

Are you ready for the ultimate cheesy competition?

Participants must build a contraption (or cheesy vehicle) that can roll a 1kg block of cheese down the hill. The fastest block of cheese to be rolled down the hill in each category wins! (Rules and regulations apply.)

Choose Your Category:

  • Babybels – under 16 $10
  • Mature – 16 and over $20
  • Platters – teams $100

We’ll race the above three categories, then have The Big Cheese Race (with all three finalists).

The day will then finish with the hilarious No Rolls Barred Finale (everyone goes at once).

Any damaged cheese will be donated to local pigs, so no food waste!

Use your school science project ideas to make your cheesy vehicle, grab some folding chairs and come and join us.

We’ll have a sausage sizzle, if you’d like to buy some lunch. And cheese rolls of course!

Plus our Disaster Welfare and Support Team will be on site with all their cool gear to explain the great work that they do.

How you are helping with cheese

All funds raised from this event will go to support vulnerable people affected by conflict, disaster and social isolation.

Support the first Southland Cheese Roll and make an impact to help people in need both overseas and in your community.

Go to our website here and also have a look at our cheesy promo video!

Hope we see you there!

Take is (ch)easy.
