Townsville 150 Celebrations

On 15 February 2016, Townsville officially marked 150 years since being declared a municipality and we want you to join the celebrations.

During the year-long salute, Townsville will host over 150 community-led festivals, events, concerts, exhibitions and activities to explore our community’s rich heritage and celebrate the evolution of our vibrant and colourful culture. Whether you’re a fifth generation local, have just moved here, or breeze through every winter to make the most of our ideal location, we want you to get involved.

As our year of T150 celebrations unfolds, visit our Facebook page, share your stories and join us in celebrating what makes Townsville great!
