Inspiring People to Shine


To give athletes a venue in which they can compete, and be treated with the utmost professionalism. We will continue to promote health and fitness within the communities. We seek to raise a standard in bodybuilding, fitness, and modeling, and give athletes an unlimited opportunity with sponsors, competitions throughout Australia and exposure in various media outlets where possible.



The Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Federation (ANB) was formed in 1983 by Robert Powell who was a young man who had a passion for all sports, especially sports that required strength training. In those days Robert owned supplement stores in Sydney.

Now more than two and a half decades later proudly having introduced numerous World and Australian Champions, we’re proud of our firmly structured organisation. Leading the way forward for our industry, we’re supporting our continually growing membership base. Focussed on creating a platform for athletes to achieve their goals and enabling them to create their own history.

Proud of our heritage and inspired by our future, as we continue to deliver sold out shows and with growing competitor numbers across competitions in every Australian state.

We have a firm and respected anti-drug policy where we will continue to support natural athletes as much as possible to give them an even playing field on stage.

All ANB athletes both amateurs and pros are qualified to join Team Australia at the DFAC worlds.


ANB Australia Anti-Doping Policy

As we head into competition season, all athletes are reminded that anti-doping testing will be taking place at all events across the country.

Athletes are reminded that ANB is a natural competition and we have a strict no tolerance policy to doping.

ANB Australia has a strong and determined vision for a Clean and Fair Competition for all ANB Australian Athletes.

If you are found to be in violation of the ANB Anti-doping policy severe action will be taken, including but not limited to suspension and loss of titles.

We look forward to a fair and clean competition as we continue our high standard of testing.
