Australia Day Activities 2020

Australia Day Activities to include free Pool Party at Splashez Aquatic Centre

Mayor Joyce McCulloch is delighted to announce that Mount Isa’s Australia Day 2020 activities will include a free family-friendly pool party at Splashez Aquatic Centre.

The free public events on Australia Day will kick off at 10.30am at Splashez, with free entry until 2.30pm, with games, activities, music, and free hot dogs.

Mayor Joyce McCulloch said after the success and positive feedback of last year’s Australia Day pool party it was an easy decision to host it again this year.

“It’s the perfect location for Australia Day in Mount Isa, whether you’re a swimmer or not, there is plenty of lovely shaded picnic areas, and it’s enjoyable for people of all ages,” Cr McCulloch said.

Cr McCulloch said there was also a late afternoon event being held at the Civic Centre to celebrate the Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony and Australia Day Awards, from 5pm.

“We would love to see everyone come along and celebrate Australia Day with us at the Civic Centre for the Australia Day Awards presentation and Citizenship Ceremony in the afternoon, with a special performance by the youth choir, and light refreshments provided.”
