TMN on Tour: Model Expo, Melbourne, Australia, 2022

For the first time since Covid, the Australian Model Expo was held in Melbourne, Australia. Best on Show winner Sam Dwyer took a great set of photos of the models on show during the event. We thought you would like to see them on our show tour gallery...


TMN on Tour: Model Expo, Melbourne, Australia, 2022

Today we have a large group of photos taken by Sam Dwyer at the 2022 Model Expo, held at Sandown Racecourse over the weekend of 17/18/19 June 2022 in Melbourne, Australia. It was the first competition held in that city since the dark days of the Covid lockdowns of the last two years and a much appreciated return to the Australian model scene.
