Great Australian Bite


Thank you!

The Great Australian Bite has raised more than $90,000 for diabetes research

What an exciting Great Australian Bite campaign 2007 has been.

More than 800 individuals have registered to host a ‘bite’ to eat with their friends, families, colleagues and communities all in support of diabetes research.

From Pambula to Penrith, from Bathurst to Baulkham Hills supporters of Diabetes Australia-NSW have rallied together to make the 2007 Great Australian Bite hugely successful.

Local businesses, schools and clubs have hosted bites to eat. Friends and families have come together for a good old fashioned ‘Aussie’ backyard bbq.

We would like to thank our sponsors Burgen Bread, Saxbys and Pinnacle for their ongoing support and a thank you to all those who participated in this years Great Australian Bite.
