Mulkadee 2022  was all about venturing Into the Unknown.

This year, Mulkadee was a variety show format and with an added element of audio-visual allowing Townsville Catholic Education to showcase the incredible talent in our diocese. This filmed component of the show not only allowed for an exciting new dimension to the Mulkadee format, it also allowed students from regional areas or senior students the opportunity to participate in the show, if they are unable to attend the full week of Mulkadee.  

Held from Monday 18 to Friday 22 July 2022, Mulkadee provides a unique experience for students to learn from industry experts and culminates in a performance to a sell-out crowd of family and friends at the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre on Friday 22 July.
