THIS Sunday will see the area's fittest and finest come together for the Southern Hemisphere's Figure and Fitness Championships.

More than a 100 competitors will gather at Twin Towns Services Club in the hope of qualifying for the world championships to be held in June.

Qualifiers from the event will compete in the National Amateur Body Building Association championships in Ireland and the World Fitness Federation Universe competition in Austria.

Secretary of NABBA Queensland Leah Ryan said the event was going to be the best one by far.

"This year is going to be bigger and better than ever before because we have a big new venue.

"Some many people are interested in body building these days and event tickets are always selling out.

"For the past eight years the event has been held at the Southport RSL but this year we needed to move to keep up with crowd numbers," she said.

Anyone interested in competing must be weighed in and measured in the foyer of the Outrigger Twin Towns Resort on Saturday between noon and 6pm.

Doors open on Sunday at 10am.

Tickets are $50 for adults, $20 for kids aged 10-16 and children under 10 are free.
