Your first experience at the polo is never your last. Carlie Wacker explores the region’s most chic sporting experience that brings fashion, fillies, friends and families together and is a chance for the nation’s serious fashionistas to win the world’s most beautiful diamond pendant.

The pomp and ceremony of a traditional day at the polo is magical. It’s the oldest game in history and brings with it a worldliness and grandeur that cannot be found in any other sport.

In 2022 we welcome the Noosa Hinterland’s most chic sporting experience in what is set to become the diamond on the Sunshine Coast social and sporting calendar – introducing Polo & Provedores Noosa.

Aaron Flanagan is the co-founder of this exciting event debuting at Noosa Showgrounds in Pomona on Saturday 5 November. With extensive credentials in delivering first-class events and a passion for food and sport, he said pairing Polo with Provedores made sense.

“Polo is a sport that brings people together and offers an experience that caters for families, sport enthusiasts, socialites and fashionistas. Pair that with stunning local food and drinks and it’s a winning match!” he says.

Polo & Provedores will take the concept of a day at the polo to a whole new level offering a fully immersive sporting day featuring on-field polo action with an off-field food and fashion extravaganza.

While the premium hospitality experience offers a completely catered culinary sensation in private marquees, the general admission guests also get to indulge in the finest food offerings from local producers and makers.

“We are so thrilled to offer an opportunity to connect provedores with the sport of polo in an event that will be just as memorable for our premium hospitality guests as it is for our families catching all the action, car boot style,” adds Aaron. “Polo & Provedores offers the perfect experience for every punter.”

Polo & Provedores general admission will cost from $49 for an adult to $145 for a whole family of five. This includes access to all the food, fashion, fillies and fun of the show.

Picnic lovers can drive the car in and secure an arena spot close to all the action in the comfort of your car boot, picnic rug or BYO seats.

For those that want to chill with friends, good food and beverages with DJs turning up the tunes – the Colts and Fillies bar is for you.

The Players Lounge and Premium Private Pavilions offer a high-end luxe experience with all the bells and whistles.

Regardless of the experience, everyone will enjoy the sportsmanship of one of the world’s oldest known team sports; the food, the fashion, the passion – and the fun – including the traditional Stomping of the Divots and The Dash.

The serious sport of polo fashion has been supersized at Polo & Provedores!

Hello Sunshine Magazine are proud polo partners and IN Noosa Magazine is proud to host Fashions on The Field with a mind-blowing prize – a $5000 diamond from Diamonds Of Distinction!

The winner will receive a custom-made 18ct white gold, pink and white diamond pendant valued at over $5000 designed and made by Master Jeweller Adrian Schulz. See Carlie Wacker’s Fashion Tips
