Countdown to the C150 Celebrations

In 2017, Cloncurry will be celebrating 150 years since Ernest Henry discovered a rich deposit of copper and named it Great Australia Mine and Roger Sheaffe established the first pastoral run in the Cloncurry district – “Fort Constantine”.

15 – 22 September 2017 will be when the 150th celebrations hit a high note with a weeklong salute to this milestone.
