Mt Isa

Our last major stopping place in Queensland before we hit the Northern Territory border at Camooweal is Mount Isa or, as the locals refer to it, ‘The Isa’.

The city came into existence because of the vast mineral deposits found in the area. Mount Isa Mines is one of the most productive single mines in world history, based on combined production of lead, silver, copper and zinc.

One of the attractions for Bob is the Irish Club in town which has a more than acceptable pint of Guinness.
