The Mount Isa Rodeo is the largest rodeo of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. It is more than just a rodeo though with something for every member of the family from a bull bucking rodeo to live music from the famous Jessica Mauboy. Rodeo has been continuing this tradition since 1959 with the town tripling in size over the few days running. Put on your checked flannel shirt and join us in August 2017!
