At Queensland Country, each year we invest in sponsorships both at state wide level and in a smaller local scale. We are proud to support both the big and the small. Below is just a snapshot of the activities we are involved in throughout our Queensland communities

Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo
The Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo is the largest rodeo in the Southern Hemisphere and was founded in 1959 with a vision to put the new, remote town of Mount Isa on the map. Today Mount Isa is proudly the “Rodeo Capital of Australia”.
To date the ‘Isa Rodeo’, as it affectionately known, has directly given in excess of $4.6 million to charity in Mount Isa. On top of that, the rodeo provides fundraising for local schools, clubs, community services and non-profit organisations.
