The sounds, spirit and tastes of the Outback were on offer at Jimboomba Hall on Saturday night as more than 120 people joined in the fun at the Karulbo Bush Tucker Gala dinner hosted by not-for-profit group Chicks Conquering Cancer.
Funds from the fundraiser evening were distributed between the Chicks Conquering Cancer group and Mununjali House in Beaudesert.
Chicks Conquering Cancer president Kathy Smith said the night saw many different groups come together to support the two worthy causes.
“These funds will help our clients with practical support,” she said.
“These nights are about networking too so it’s great to see our clients, members and councils come together.”

Mununjali House general manager Brad Currie said it was great to see so many people chipping in to support the night.
“Many people have worked hard to put this night together,” he said.
“These funds will contribute to supporting kids at risk in our community, teach culture and provide early intervention.
“Cancer doesn't discriminate, so it’s a great community effort.”
Entertainment was provided by musicians Kat Waria, Jacob Ridgeway and Jared Fogarty, and dancers from the Aboriginal Centre for Performing Arts.
Fusion Pantry’s Nikki Chenoweth told the crowd she hoped they would take the opportunity to try traditional foods on the night.
She hoped it would inspire people to try new flavours with their own cooking.
