The prosperous city of Mount Isa is a fascinating destination in the heart of the outback. Situated in an isolated spot 977 kilometres west of Townsville in Queensland, the city’s origins are integrally entwined with its mining heritage. Here is the opportunity for visitors to see flora and fauna that is unique to the local habitat or experience an underground adventure to discover the life of a local miner. You can learn about the history of the city by taking a tour into the depths of the Hard Times Mine, guided by a real miner, to witness the machinery and stories of the industry. For those preferring to stay above ground, the Riversleigh Fossil Centre is a popular place to visit, displaying unique fossils of unusual creatures that have roamed the area, dating back 30 million years. To fully appreciate the history and culture of the city, you can immerse yourself in the living museum that is the Isa Experience, featuring entertaining displays of local life. By contrast, the Outback Park offers a natural landscape for anyone looking for a rural setting, complete with lagoon and tranquil waterfall. If you want to see more of the surrounding area, then a short drive out of the city to the north will lead to Lake Moondarra, a picturesque body of water suitable for swimming, canoeing and fishing. Whether you want to wander around the city’s sights or venture into the arid dessert, Mount Isa blends modern cosmopolitan life with an authentic outback experience.

Best Time to Fly to Mount Isa

Due to the arid desert location of the city, temperatures here are extremely high, with hot, humid days all through the year. During the winter season, between April and September, visitors can still experience warm days, but nights are generally cooler. Combined with a lower average number of rainy days, the cooler winter season is a more comfortable time to enjoy the local attractions.

Rainfall can be particularly heavy between November and March, making this time of year less attractive to visitors. However, rainfall varies from year to year, so you can get cheaper deals on travel and accommodations during this season and still be rewarded with hot weather.
