Miss Universe Australia 2012 winner Renae Ayris
From the lands down under, the new Miss Universe Australia 2012 winner was the stunning Renae Ayris from Perth. She was crowned by last year's winner Scherri-Lee Biggs during a glamorous beauty pageant held at the Grand Ballroom of the Sofitel Melbourne in Collins, Melbourne last June 8.

During the final interview round, Renae answered a controversial question from former news personality Naomi Robson asking about her opinion on gay marriage.

Ayris replyed: "I believe that everyone should have equal rights whether it be marriage or any other factor. Everyone has their own opinion and if it doesn't infringe on anyone else's rights then I think it's a great thing. If they are in love, then they should celebrate their love and if that means marriage, then they should get married because it's amazing." And that where she received wonderful response from the crowd.

Among the panel of celebrity judges includes actress and model Annalise Braakensiek, actor Vince Collosimo and fashion designer Wayne Cooper.

Declared as the 1st run-up was Mary Vitinaros and 2nd run-up was Amy Fromm.

As the new beauty queen, Renae will take home $30,000 Temelli Jewellery crown and will have the right to represent the country in Miss Universe 2012 on December.
