Liverpool Municipality 150th Anniversary

This year Liverpool marks 150 years of its own local government, following the granting of municipality status to the area on 27 June 1872.

This is an important milestone along with 40,000+ years of First Nations heritage, the founding of the town of Liverpool in 1810, and the granting of city status to Liverpool in 1960.

In 1972 the 100th anniversary of Council was marked by the Liverpool Festival of Progress. A time capsule was also buried in 1972 and will be unearthed as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations later this year.
