Mount Isa  Queensland

    •   Show me: a map of Mount Isa

A big, bustling mining town in Queensland’s rough-and-ready far north-west, Mount Isa boasts one of the largest silver, lead and copper mines in the world. While its location places it squarely in the Queensland Outback, the Isa is a large, modern city which provides all the creature comforts required by long-distance travellers for forays into the bush. There’s just so much Outback adventuring to do using Mount Isa as your base… chartering a barramundi fishing flight to the remote Mornington Island, or Sweers Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria… visiting the abandoned mines at Kajabbi and tranquil Lake Julius about 100km to the north of town… tackling the unsealed roads to Lawn Hill National Park, 400km north-west of Mt Isa, a unique oasis in the tough Queensland Outback. While you're out and about, don't miss the road from Cloncurry to Mt Isa, hilly and attractive, lined with some of the oldest exposed hills in the world.

In between excursions, you can fill in your time round town by taking in the likes of the Tent House, the Outback in Isa, which includes dinosaur fossils, an underground mine tour and a tranquil lake, perfect for picnics, the John Middlin Mining Centre with its simulated mine shaft, the Royal Flying Doctor Base, the School of the Air, Kalkadoon Tribal Centre or take in the city sights from the Hilary Street Lookout. Not far out of town, Lake Moondarra makes a picturesque place for a picnic.

In town:
  • The Tent House - a characteristic Mt Isa house with a double roof structure to keep cool
  • The Outback in Isa - take an underground mine tour, see fossils from the world-renowned Riversleigh area and enjoy a picnic by the lake
  • John Middlin Mining Centre - mining exhibits and a simulated mine shaft (perfect for those too young for the tour at Outback in Isa)
  • Royal Flying Doctor Base
  • School of the Air
  • Kalkadoon Tribal Centre - Aboriginal culture and heritage
  • Hilary Street Lookout - city sights
  • Lake Moondarra - picnic areas with free BBQs, prolific birdlife

  • Out of Town:
  • Charter a flight - fish for barramundi
  • Kajabbi - abandoned mines and Lake Julius
  • Lawn Hill National Park - an Outback oasis
