Narromine held the annual event as part of its Australia Day celebrations.
There were rounds for the younger participants before the returning champion Anthony Everett stepped up to reclaim his title.
The rules? You can eat the watermelon anyway you like, but the skin must remain intact.
The winners were awarded cash prizes, which Anthony Everett donated to Australia Day ambassador Viviene Kartsounis’ charity Shoes for Planet Earth.
This Australia Day was especially important for four Narromine people who became Australian citizens.
Latha Potu, Robert Hohnstein, Craig Roberts and Luke Viggers made the pledge to Australia.
Five deserving people were also announced as the citizens of the year.
