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 2022 service was held at the State Miners Memorial Monument at Redbank.

The monument, created by prominent artist Scott Maxwell, was opened in 2017.

You can watch the service and view the photos on the Facebook page.

Photos from the 2021 event are available here.
