Moranbah has a second chance to celebrate its 50th anniversary! This May day long weekend, the town will be celebrating across 4 days with a great program of events and activities for everyone.

The Isaac Regional Council has partnered with Moranbah the Good Old Days and local community groups to present the long weekend celebration. Community events will run from Friday, 30 April 2021 to Monday, 3 May 2021, culminating in the Labour Day march on the Monday morning.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said everyone who, at one time or another, called Moranbah home, is invited to come and join in on the four-day party. “The planned celebrations in 2020 were put on hold due to COVID-19, but a global pandemic didn’t extinguish the desire to celebrate, and the weekend celebrations have been picked up 12-months on,” Mayor Baker said.  Read more

The celebrations will be happening across four days and include a BBQ dinner, a 3-day Family Fun Fair, a Damper Cook-Up, a ‘Murder Mystery’ party, multiple sporting events, Labour Day March and plenty of live entertainment!
