Accommodation in Mount Isa for the Rotary Rodeo
Rodeo-goers will flood to 2012 Xstrata Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo to see the nation’s best compete in the ring over three action-packed days for a $200,000 prize pool in events such as bull riding, saddle bronc and bareback, steer wrestling, roping, ladies barrel racing and breakaway roping.
“We are introducing mini rodeos within the three day competition so people can see the top competitors in a fast-paced showcase of the standard events,” Xstrata Mount Isa Rotary Rodeo Manger, Tricia Esdaile promotes.
Just over a week a way, it may be a bit last minute to book your accommodation but our handy Mount Isa Travel Guide is a great resource.

“We’ve had a huge response via social media on our Facebook and twitter sites, so we know people are really looking to rodeos to provide great entertainment as well as the traditional events,” maintains Ms Esdaile.
