Murtoa's Big Weekend

Murtoa’s 150th Year to be celebrated during Murtoa’s Big Weekend 2022

This year marks the 150th birthday of Murtoa which will be celebrated during Murtoa’s Big Weekend (30 September – 2 October 2022). The Committee of Murtoa’s Big Weekend event organisers have extended a warm welcome to many community groups within Murtoa to include 150th-related activities to the exciting 3-day timetable of events. A meeting every second Wednesday of the month (7pm at Murtoa Neighbourhood House) will be an opportunity for all groups to come together to discuss possible inclusions. 

This note is also a reminder to make friends and family aware of the date to mark in their diaries to keep available… to come and celebrate ‘all things Murtoa’. The exciting line-up of potential events will be unveiled as they are confirmed, so keep an eye out for further special notifications regarding the celebratory event.


The program includes tours of the National Heritage-listed Stick Shed, the 136th Annual A&P Agricultural Show, Saturday morning’s Monster Market, Murtoa Cup Race Meeting, Art Exhibition & Sale, Dunmunkle Sumpoilers Historic Engines display, the Water Tower Museum, as well as a host of other attractions. Murtoa’s Big Weekend also provides an excellent opportunity for all to experience the beautiful Lake Marma and Rabl Park surrounds.
