Here’s All The Pubs Doing Parmas For Drought Relief

If you haven’t heard of ‘Parma For A Farmer’, you must've had your head in the sand...the dry, arid, never-gets-rain sand that makes up about 90% of Australia.

PFAF is an initiative from Rural Aid that’s trying to get all Aussies eating more parmas. Why? Because $1 from every plate will be going to help drought-stricken farmers all over the country (any venues reading this, you can sign up for the program here).

What will your hard-earned parma dollars buy? Hay. Literally hay. There’s no grass to be grown in a lot of places right now, so feed has to be shipped in. $20 buys a small bale of hay, and $9500 gets a semi-trailer full of the stuff.

Here’s all the venues in Brisbane helping out the cause. Get on down and grab a parma.


  • The Breakfast Creek Hotel, Newstead
  • The Wickhan, Fortitude Valley
  • The QA Hotel, Fortitude Valley
  • The Paddington Hotel, Paddington
  • The Pineapple Hotel, Kangaroo Point
  • Sandstone Hotel, Sandstone Point
  • Brunswick Hotel, Fortitude Valley
  • The Albion, Sandgate
  • Brooke Hotel

  • Holland Park Hotel, Holland Park
  • The Morrison, Woolloongabba
  • The Victory, CBD
  • Oxford 152, Bulimba
  • Hamilton Hotel, Hamilton
