Cider Australia runs the annual Australian Cider Awards. As the largest cider show in Australia, the Awards is at the cutting edge of cider judging and is well respected nationally and internationally.

In 2019, 276 local and international cider and perry products entered the show making it the largest cider competition in Australia.

Through the Awards, we promote and reward excellence in cider production and bring together cider makers, industry representatives, communicators, retailers, sommeliers and consumers.

This section outlines the history of the Awards, its current status and details on the organising committee.
