THE start of International Women's Week should be a real hit at the Gympie Golf Club tomorrow with an 18-hole women's competition that will run alongside an all-day expo.

Don't miss the 9am shotgun start to the competition which will launch the week that includes International Women's Day on Tuesday.

It's a week to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while still remembering women who suffer from the gender divide worldwide.

Gympie Ladies Golf Club captain and co-organiser Robyn Jackson said Sunday's event is a great way to start International Women's Week.

"The Queensland Women's Week theme 'Good for her, great for us, when women achieve Queensland succeeds' is a perfect summary of what we're trying to achieve," she said.

She said health and well-being displays, makeup demonstrations, yoga and Pilates presentations and fashion parades are just some of the things to expect.

Stallholders will set up at 8am while presentations and displays will begin when the golf competition wraps up.

"The public is welcome to pop in and see what's on offer in Gympie or they can just relax in the clubhouse with a cold drink and some great food from the bistro," she said. Gympie Regional Council social wellbeing councillor Rae Gate will open the expo at 2.15pm.
