Australia's Mullet Queen And 'Best Ranga Mullet' Have Been Named

The 2019 Mulletfest winners have been announced and women took out two of the biggest awards.

Only in its second year, the competition drew 160 entries from all across Australia. It was the first year women have entered Mulletfest. And the first year a woman had won the biggest title.

Categories for entrants included Best Ranga Mullet-- which was also taken out by a woman-- Best Junior Mullet and the overall winner. The festival is held at Kurri Kurri, a coal mining town in NSW, a town that has been inundated by mullets.

But it wasn't an all female affair. The men brought their A-game. You can't go past Perth's Jamie Brookes who had both the hair and the blue steel look that made him a real competitor.

Then you had the younger participants such as Jaxon Smith who knows all about the 'business at the front, party at the back' look.
