MODEL scout Jo Sheils is hoping that Byron Bay has Australia's next supermodel.

From Hunter Model Management on the Gold Coast, Jo will be in Byron Bay next Wednesday and is hoping to find the next Miranda Kerr or Abbey Lee Kershaw.

An international model herself, Jo now 41, started her model scouting agency about a year ago and is also a scout for Dallys Models in Brisbane.

"I'm very excited about coming to Byron, it's an untapped market," Jo said.

"I'm sure there are some beautiful girls and boys with that healthy, 'sunshiny', happy look that comes from living on the beach."

While Jo will be looking for girls as young as 13 or 14 and boys aged from about 16, she encourages everyone in their 20s and 30s to turn up to the Byron auditions.

"I don't want to see any make-up, the more natural the better," she said.

"Thin or a bit overweight, if you think you have the look, then come and see me."
