Clear skies, fabulous weather and rodeo – you’d be forgiven for thinking it couldn’t get any better.
But that’s just the start.
Surrounded by the Australian outback, Mount Isa is a thriving city with an enterprising spirit emerging from the engine room of the town that is the mining industry.
Affectionately known as “The Isa” by locals, this outback hub has so much to offer from Lake Moondarra to tourist attractions such as Outback at Isa, the Underground Hospital and Royal Flying Doctor Service Visitor Centre. Not to mention the natural wonders, spectacular outback scenery, fantastic four-wheel-drive tracks, and excellent camping and weekend getaways.
But Rodeo is the heart and soul of the city. It is the crown jewel of the region – there’s no better time to visit Mount Isa than during the largest rodeo in the Southern Hemisphere.
