Liverpool to celebrate its 150th anniversary in June 2022

Liverpool City Councillor Nathan Hagarty’s call to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Liverpool being proclaimed as a municipal district has been welcomed with unanimous support from his fellow Councillors.

27 June 2022 is a significant occasion for our great city and I’m glad to see we will be giving it the recognition it deserves. A big thanks goes to Glen Op Den Brouw at The City of Liverpool and District Historical Society for bringing this important milestone to my attention.

“While Liverpool has a bright future ahead with the Airport and our growing CBD, we can never forget where we came from. We are Australia’s fourth oldest town and over that time we have welcomed many new Australians and we have a long and proud indigenous history,” Councillor Hagarty said.

Councillor Hagarty, who raised the motion at the September Council Meeting, wants to see the important occasion reflect the best of Liverpool after a tough two years of pandemic and lockdowns.

“As we come out of the devastating impacts of COVID-19, this is the perfect platform for a community and business recovery. It would be a boon for tourism, local morale and provide a much needed boost for our economy.

“A year long celebration and some civic pride involving the community and local business is just what we need. The effects of COVID and being labelled an ‘LGA of concern’ have left a deep stigma. Celebrating our great history and identity will provide a fantastic opportunity to showcase the best of Liverpool,” he said.
