Following meetings at Orange NSW in September 2011 and at Healsville Vic in January 2012 a group of cider and perry producers decided to proceed with the formation of a producers organisation. As a result, Cider Australia has been incorporated (in NSW) and is working with the organisers of the Australian Cider Awards to bring to the public a number of events associated with the Awards.

Cider Australia now have their own website:

where information about the organisation and the public events can be obtained.

Please note that Cider Australia and the Australian Cider Awards now share the same logo.
