Miners Memorial Day

The Miners Memorial Day Service is held on 19 September each year. This date marks the anniversary of the state’s worst mining disaster where 75 miners lost their lives in a coal mine at Mount Mulligan in 1921.

The service is a time to formally pause and honour the memory of all those who have lost their lives working in Queensland mines.

The 2023 service will be held at the Mount Isa Civic Centre.

The service will also be live streamed on the RSHQ Facebook page.

The 2022 service was held at Redbank. View the photos.
