Contestants of the Miss World Australia pageant were recently transported to the crowning gala event in a brand new Higer bus.

The event is the country’s leading pageant showcasing young women who exemplify beauty, talent, intelligence and compassion.

The women made the 300km return trip from Sydney Airport to the Hunter Valley in a Higer H8200 Ryder.

Higer Chief Executive Officer Neil Bamford was approached by the pageant organisers to support the event.

He was keen to contribute to an event that has raised more than $300,000 for a number of children’s and regional indigenous charities since 2011.

"I am proud to put Higer’s support behind Miss World Australia," he says.

"The program showcases each contestant’s unique character.

"By placing an emphasis on strength and empowerment, the program encourages women to embrace their unique talents and develop their self-confidence."

Miss World Australia winner, Courtney Thorpe says the bus is ‘comforatble’ which was perfect for the trip.

"It was a long drive from Sydney to the Hunter Valley and we were expected to look our best and be ready for competition when we arrived." She says.

"It was great to be able to do what we needed to on the way.

"Some of the girls rested all the way up there and some prepared for their presentations."
