Northern Stories

Townsville City Council and the National Australia Day Council present Northern Stories.

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.

We are all part of the story. What story will you share?

Throughout January, we celebrate the stories of the North. We celebrate by recognising the contribution that every Australian brings to our diverse country.

From 15 – 26 January, stories will be told from different locations through HALO – an immersive light show, live story sessions, family fun activities, and non-stop entertainment. Come together and celebrate the things about our nation that we are proud of and grateful for.

The opportunity to understand where we have come from, where we are today and where we go from here. An unforgettable experience packed with free and fun activities.

Plan your day to make the most of the variety of activities on offer.

Full program coming soon.
