Published: 13th April 2023

Mount Isa residents and visitors alike will get a chance to kick up their heels and celebrate the city’s centenary in style at the 100 Years Gala Dinner, proudly organised by Mount Isa City Council.

The reunion dinner will be held on Saturday, May 6, at Buchanan Park. The night will feature live music from Brisbane group Hamilton and will be emceed by legendary Australian comedian Dave O’Neil.

Mayor Danielle Slade said the event promises to be an amazing night out and is the perfect opportunity for people to catch up with friends and family and reminisce about the many great experiences and times they’d had in Mount Isa.

“The 100 Years Gala Dinner will be one of the highlights of the event calendar for Mount Isa’s centenary,” Cr Slade said.

“And where better to have it than at Buchanan Park, which has been home to the iconic event that put Mount Isa on the map – the Isa Rodeo – for about 15 years.

“This event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people to celebrate the many fond memories they’ve made in Mount Isa over the years, so be sure to come along for a terrific night out.

“And if you know any Mount Isa ex-pats who are thinking of returning for the 100 Years Celebrations, encourage them to come along, too – this event will be as good a reason as any to do so, and we would love for them to share their stories with others.”
