Mount Isa

We have arrived in Mount Isa, not for the first time! We have made several visits to this fine city. Having family here in "The Isa" is a compelling reason for us to return often. We are visiting this year for Christmas and The New Year Celebrations as we also did in the year 2010.

The trip overland from the coast was a leisurely 10 days, we found several new (to us) free campsites and met many new fellow travellers along the way.

We are here in "The Isa" until about mid January, our return trip will probably be along the Flinders Highway to Charters Towers and then south to home. You will hear from us again when we are back on the road. 'Till then we would like to wish all our readers a very Jolly Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

The scene everyone remembers of Mount Isa, The Xsrata Mine and Smelter which is adjacent to the Mount Isa City Centre.

The Town Centre Lookout is off the street opposite The Tourist Information Centre. From the Lookout you can see a panorama of most of Mount Isa and have The Smelter in the background. I took these photographs just to prove that we did in fact arrive here.

You can see other photographs I have captured on a previous visit to Mount Isa here:
