What is Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea all about?
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an opportunity for friends, family or workmates to come together, share a cuppa and some delicious food, whilst helping those affected by cancer. Thousands of people from all over the country will host morning tea events - in their homes, in the community, or at work. Small and large, formal and informal, these events rely on the passion, generosity and goodwill of both hosts and guests.
This year, we celebrate 20 years of morning tea, and so far we have raised an incredible $110 million in total to help beat cancer. This year we hope to reach our biggest target yet, $13 million.
While the official date of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is on Thursday 23rd May, events can be held any time during May or June.
There are a variety of ways you can get involved and make a difference. If you would like to host a morning tea, simply register and we will send out a host toolkit to help you plan for the BIG event.

Here at Cancer Council, we work with our members, and our eight states and territory cancer organisations to undertake and fund cancer research, prevent and control cancer, and provide information and support for people affected by cancer.
As a national organisation we also advise governments and other bodies about appropriate practices and policies for the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer and we advocate for the rights of cancer patients to best treatment and supportive care.
We’re here to support those diagnosed as well as their families. With your help and support we can continue to offer the following services:
