Mt Isa

Tuesday 20th May, (Mount Isa).

Lake Moondarra was the item on the agenda for today. This is a man made lake 15k or so north of Isa and was built for recreational purposes for the local community and for the city’s main water supply. It turned out to be an ideal resting area, being so peaceful and quiet, then it is a week day and no locals were out there.

We also went on a short drive out to the east to have a look and upon returning we noticed our first view of Mount Isa from that direction was not a very impressive one. All one could see was the mine that was towering above anything in the surrounds. This is especially daunting with the locals boasting that Isa is such a large city and one can’t even see it.
