Judging for young NAIDOC royals

YESTERDAY'S NAIDOC Week baby show proved you are never too young to be stylish.

Party dresses, tiny suits and fedoras were among the fashions as hundreds of children vied for the titles of NAIDOC Princess and Prince.

One-year-old Jordan Allan Dick wowed the judges in his tiny tux that mum Raema Dick bought off eBay.

“I bought his outfit for $20 off eBay and he's worn it to five different occasions already,” Ms Dick said.

Each pint-sized participant in the show, held at the Minjungbal Cultural Museum in South Tweed, was awarded a ribbon and certificate before the judges chose the winners.

NAIDOC Week community co-ordinator Deidre Currie said there were too many cuties to choose a favourite.

“The parents go to so much trouble,” Ms Currie said.

“It's been a really good turnout and it's always an enjoyable day.”

Today will mark the end of the NAIDOC Week celebrations, with a street march to Jack Evans Boat Harbour from 10am, a corroboree in the park and a dinner dance at Twin Towns Services Club.
