The Clare area originally was known as the "Burdekin Crossing" or "Hamilton's Crossing". In 1877 it was renamed "Mulgrave", and then on 20th July 1882, was changed again to "Clare" by Alcott Tulley who named it Clare after one of his family.

The year 2012 therefore marks the 130th anniversary of Clare receiving its name. According to a group of 200 revellers this is another excuse for a reunion which is scheduled for Sunday 29th April 2012.

The reunion is to be held the weekend before the Labour day long weekend. There are already many local events booked for the long weekend so it was decided to have the reunion the week before the maximise the number of local people who are able to attend.
