Northern Stories 2021

Townsville City Council and the National Australia Day Council presented Northern Stories from 15 to 26 January 2021.

Northern Stories were told from multiple locations through HALO – an immersive light show. It was an opportunity to come together and celebrate the things about our nation that we are proud of and grateful for, and to understand where we have come from, where we are today and where we go from here.


When reflecting on our history, respecting all cultures and celebrating together – we do this through storytelling. Telling stories is one of the most important ways to connect, educate and inspire. Stories express the culture, history and ideals that tie people together.
