The annual Tannum Crab Classic (TCC) raises much needed funds for local families living with disability. The Crab Classic consists of two mini events that culminate in the final weekend with the TCC Family Fun Day.

Kicking-off the TCC event program, the weekend prior, is the Ladies night Out.

The following Friday approximately 50 TCC members head down to the Lillie’s Beach for the Crab Campout. Members compete to catch the biggest mud crab for Sunday’s crab races at the Family Fun Day; whilst also providing a relaxed platform to discuss men’s mental health issues.

Following the Crab Campout, on the Sunday, the local community head down to Dennis Park Boyne Island to enjoy the Family Fun Day. The fundraising continues here with raffle tickets and bidding on the big mud crab race. The family orientated afternoon is a great way to bring the community together and help local families in need. GCLA has auspiced the family event since 2017.
