But that’s not all, the theme of the Mount Isa Show is to show the best of Mount Isa in all respects, which means touching into horticulture and cooking, with displays of massive vegetables and fruit and even cooking competitions being held.

Keeping the kids busy
With plenty of food, fun fare, kids activities, rides and games, there’s more than enough to keep to kids busy. They can always choose to rock out to some live music, hit a carnival game at the show in hopes to win a toy, binge their hearts away at the ice cream stand, or jump on one of the many amusement rides.
There’s also petting zoos and animal farms that will have the kids swooning over how adorable the little animals are. Don’t worry, the animal section isn’t restricted to just the kids, which means you can get your hands on some little cute fur babies too.
