Did you know:

Approximately 140,000 tonnes of wood pallets and crates are sent to landfill each year in Sydney alone! Shockingly, a staggering FIFTY PERCENT of all pallets are only used once. The Power of Pallets Incorporated is a not for profit organisation that is helping to solve this problem and reduce the amount of pallets sent to land fill in Australia.

Through our innovative initiative, Up cycle for a Cause, The Power of Pallets encourages artists, individuals, tradies, schools and community organisations to up cycle our pallets into useful items such as furniture, toys and novelty items. Works are then auctioned off at a cocktail gala at the Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal.

All proceeds are donated to the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation and go to fund improvements to healthcare services in Far North Queensland.

This year’s event aims to raise $30,000 to fund the purchase of new equipment for Cairns Hospital. Tickets are just $39 per person and include entry, food and entertainment.
