Glencore Great Western Games

The Glencore Great Western Games will be on again in 2017 and held from the 24th June to 2nd July 2017. The games promise to be bigger and better with new and different sporting options being considered as well as modified versions.


The 2015 Glencore Great Western Games saw over 1700 athletes complete across 19 sports which provided significant benefits to local sporting clubs and associations. Applications to host a sport at the games are now being taken and completed forms are to be sent to by 30/11/2016.

 Mount Isa will be the host city for the games and as such we are trying to have as many local sporting clubs and organisations involved. If you require any more information about the games or what is required to be a host please feel free to contact Council on 4747 3200 or the North Queensland Sports Foundation on 07 4724 2500. Sports are offered in Mount Isa, Cloncurry, Julia Creek, Richmond, Hughenden and Charters Towers.
