Lunch with the Honey Badger

Lunch with the Honey Badger

As a major part of the weekend’s festivities we will be hosting an exclusive lunch with Queensland Weekender favourite Sammie O'Brien MC'ing and special guest Nick "The Honeybadger" Cummins.

Guests will be treated to an afternoon of laughs as Sammie grills Nick about his life adventures on and off the field. You are guaranteed an afternoon of fun filled with flavour and flare.

We cannot promise what will happen on the day, but we can promise that you will get to hear some of Nick's famous quips and to get you in the mood here are some of our favourites:

“If I get a gig, I’m gonna go off like a cut snake.”

“You’re as tough as woodpecker lips.”

“Last year we were all sizzle and no steak, but now we’re off like a brides nightie.”

Sammie O'Brien

Sammie once aspired to a career as a nurse – but it turns out medicine’s loss was lifestyle television’s gain.

Joining Queensland Weekender as our youngest team member ever, Sammie has grown to become one of the show’s best-loved presenters.

We put it down to her cheerful personality… warm smile… youthful vitality… and a natural ease with everyone she meets.

Since coming on board with the show, Sammie has expanded her presentation role to include major events, including the Channel 7 Brisbane Racing Carnival.

Nick "The HoneyBadger" Cummins

Former professional rugby player, author, TV presenter, media personality and all-round good guy, Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins will be joining in all the fun and hitting the Fitzroy for the 2019 Barra Bash!

After more than a decade of playing top-level rugby union, Nick Cummins has catapulted from a rugby somebody to Australian cult hero with the help of his interesting post-match interviews! Following a colourful season as The Bachelor in 2018, Nick has proved that he can survive in the wildest of environments, always sporting a witty quip and cheeky grin!

In 2019 his star is set to shine even brighter as he heads up his own show for National Geographic Meanwhile in Australia with Nick Cummins and of course, makes his debut appearance at the 2019 Fitzroy Barra Bash.... making this event a must-attend for everyone!
