Stable on the Strand is owned and run by Stable on the Strand Inc., a non-profit organisation, whose members are drawn from across the various churches of Townsville.
Stable on the Strand History
2018 is our 17th year of operation at Strand Park. The event commenced in 1999 as a small production at a Mt Louisa church (Mt Louisa House of Praise) using the talents of a few local churches.
In 2002 the Townsville City Council approached the organisers and invited them to take their ‘Stable’ production to Strand Park, and ‘Stable on the Strand’ was born.
Crowds over the 5 nights have grown from 22,000 to current figures of regularly attracting around 40,000 visitors.
