There was national outcry when the iconic event was cancelled last year, but CGU’s support has enabled the show to go on.

More than 1.6 million people have attended a Tropfest event since it was established in 1993. The event today attracts a live national audience of around 150,000 and draws in hundreds of thousands more via the live TV broadcast.

Tropfest has been an important event on Australia’s national calendar for 23 years and has spread globally to New Zealand, South East Asia, New York, the Middle East and elsewhere.

In addition to new partner CGU Insurance, Tropfest is supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW and Screen NSW; as well as returning major partners Qantas, Nikon, Centennial Parklands, SBS 2, Screen Australia and Nova 96.9.
