Pat Callinan’s 4x4 Adventures to Showcase Mount Isa’s Best
“Mr 4x4” himself, Pat Callinan, is bringing his much-loved off-roading, travel and adventure show to Mount Isa next month, with the region to be featured in a full one-hour episode.
Pat Callinan’s 4x4 Adventures will be in the area in late July for about a week, travelling through the region and filming for an episode that’s set to air on Channel 10 and WIN TV in early November.
They will be filming in Mount Isa for about three days, highlighting all of the iconic locations in the area, for season 14 of the show.
Pat will be sharing all of the best local spots to visit, inspiring audiences to visit the locations themselves.
“I can’t wait to get back up around Mount Isa again this year,” Pat said.
“That country is really something special, but this time we’re gonna dive a little deeper.”
Councillor Peta MacRae, who is responsible for the Tourism portfolio, said she was thrilled to hear that Mount Isa and the surrounding area will be highlighted by the long-running show.
“Pat is well-known across Australia, and episodes of his show often draw in more than half a million viewers each, so we very much welcome the news that he will be making his way up to this area next month to showcase the best that Mount Isa has to offer travellers and four-wheel drivers,” Cr MacRae said.
“He and his crew may even be sticking around for the Mount Isa Mines Rodeo too, which would be even better.
“We also have an arrangement whereby we’ll be able to use some of their local footage for our own future tourism and marketing materials, which I’m looking forward to seeing, as it will really complement what we’re doing in that space in helping to promote Mount Isa to the rest of Australia.”
Mayor Danielle said the visit by Pat Callinan’s 4x4 Adventures is wonderful news.
“Mount Isa is well known for being the Rodeo Capital of Australia or a mining city, but we are also surrounded by pristine country, and this will be a great opportunity to showcase what Mount Isa has to offer,” Cr Slade said.
