Cloncurry, a rural town in western Queensland, is 1000 km west of Mackay and 270 km from the Northern Territory border is the administrative seat of the Cloncurry Shire. Pastoral occupation of the Cloncurry district began in the 1860s when a semi-permanent mining community developed and Cloncurry Township was surveyed. A major copper lode was found in 1880 at Argylla, west of Cloncurry, and in 1884 the ore body was processed with an on-site smelter. Cloncurry was a temporary aerodrome for the London to Melbourne air race in 1919, and three years later the town was a scheduled destination for the first Qantas air service. In 1928 Cloncurry was the commencing headquarter of the Australian Inland Mission’s flying doctor service. The aerodrome runways were sealed in 1944 after use by the RAAF in war time. The choice of Cloncurry as the centre for the flying doctor service was an indication of its status as a frontier town. The town developed a survival strategy to cope following a downturn in mining activities when open cut copper reserves at Glencore’s Ernest Henry Copper Mine (38 km north-east of Cloncurry) were exhausted in 2011 when the mine began the transition to underground mining to keep production going until 2026. Some of the local events are The Cloncurry Stockmans Challenge which was formed 20 years ago in honour of Cloncurry local horseman and Melbourne Cup winner, Reg Brown, breeder of the famous Nonda Stockhorse and The Cloncurry Merry Muster which is a fun filled weekend in August. The weekend kicks off with the street festival Friday night, Ute show, horse races, rodeo on Saturday and rodeo all day Sunday.
