McKinlay

Located 104 kilometres south east of Cloncurry, McKinlay was named after the McKinlay River which was discovered and named by the explorer John McKinlay. McKinlay had arrived in New South Wales in 1836 and by 1861 had become such an adept bushman that he was chosen to lead the South Australian Burke Relief Expedition to search for the missing Burke and Wills.

Like many of its counterparts along the track, this little town, established more than 100 years ago, was a staging post for Cobb & Co. coaches and a social gathering point for the graziers whose vast properties surround it.

McKinlay is home to the famous Walkabout Creek Hotel. Originally known as the Federal Hotel and built in 1900, The Walkabout Creek Hotel is now famous for being recognised as the pub in the Paul Hogan movie "Crocodile Dundee". The pub, together with other buildings in the town were featured in this iconic Australian film.

Located in Middleton Street, McKinlay, Queensland's smallest public library and visitor centre. The library boasts a large range of fiction and non fiction books and internet access available. Visitor information and brochures are also available.

Located 87 kilometres south of McKinlay is Cannington South 32 mine site - the world's largest and lowest cost single mine producer of both silver and lead. Opened in 1997, Cannington was the supplier of silver for the Olympic Games medals in Sydney in 2000 and again for the Beijing Olympics, 2008.
