Stanthorpe 150th Anniversary Celebrations
Stanthorpe is set to celebrate its 150th anniversary (S150) in 2022 and preparations are gaining momentum. S150 will be a kaleidoscope of events celebrating the origins of the town from the humble establishment of tin mining in the region to the robust wine, fruit and vegetable industries we see today. The S150 will not only celebrate valuable industries like tourism, but also reflect on challenges such as floods and fires that have shaped the community’s resilience over the past 150 years.
To promote the upcoming S150 celebrations, both amateur and professional artists of all ages from across Southern Downs were invited to submit a competition entry for a commemorative S150 logo. The call for a community driven logo was a significant step in the S150 planning process and the winning entry from local resident, Jennie Wardle, was announced on 25 June 2021.
