CURRY DAY commenced with the traditional Mitakoodi welcome by Hombre Major who emphasised that the Mitakoodi People welcome all visitors to their land.

Representatives from these Cloncurry organisations were on hand at Curry Day to welcome new residents and visitors.

Committees and clubs represented at the event at Mary Kathleen Park on Sunday afternoon included; the Lions Club, Historical Society, Stockman’s Challenge, Bush Poets, and the C150 Committee. 

The return of Curry Day after two years absence was an outstanding success, having been held in the cooler hours from 3pm to 6pm. 

The day is designed to welcome all new residents and visitors to Cloncurry and to give them a chance to meet with representatives from local sporting and social groups. 

The year marks the 150th anniversary since the first copper discovery in the town. 

C150 has been well planned in advance with the calendar year packed with events of all descriptions to celebrate the Shire of Cloncurry’s history.
