About Championship

Conducted jointly by the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) and the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand (REINZ), the Championships have become the most prestigious event on the Australasian Auctioneering calendar.

Originally established in 1991, as a competition between the Real Estate Institutes of Tasmania and Victoria, the concept was quickly adopted by South Australia and held every two years. Over time the remaining Australian states and territories joined the competition with Australasian partner, New Zealand. By 2005 the Championship had become an annual event with a highly sought-after title amongst auctioneers across Australasia.

Prior to the Championships each year, New Zealand and each Australian state and territory host individual auctioneering competitions to determine the best two auctioneers from each state and territory. These finalists go on to compete in the highly prestigious Australasian Auctioneering Championship.
