Mount Isa and North West

Pack your hard-hat and sense of adventure – just four hours’ drive west of Townsville, Outback Queensland’s North West region, known as Flinders Shire, begins. Dinosaur fossils, jaw-dropping scenery and the mining magnate of Mount Isa awaits.

Up for a challenge

Join an underground Mount Isa mines tour or keep the sky in sight at Lake Moondarra, fishing for barramundi. Put on your Akubra and best boots, and buckle up for the biggest rodeo in the southern hemisphere in Mount Isa. Battle the gruelling Julia Creek triathlon at the annual 'Dirt n Dust Festival' and learn about the endangered McKinlay dunnart, found only in the Mitchell Grass Downs. 

Ancient beauty

Treat yourself to the pinnacle of Mother Nature by canoeing the gentle gorge and creek at Adels Grove in Boodjamulla (Lawn Hill) National Park. Dig amongst 25-million-year-old World Heritage-listed sites at Riversleigh Fossil Site with a Savannah Guide, see the remains of ancient underwater marine reptiles in Richmond, or see an impressive fossil collection in Hughenden. Top it off with a hike through Porcupine National Park, coined 'Australia's Mini Grand Canyon'.
