Just stayed the one night in Cloncurry and headed along the Barkly Highway to Mt Isa. Really interesting drive. Landscape changed dramatically from plains and sparse grazing land to the stunning Selwyn Ranges. Great rock formations and outback colours.
Mt Isa is a typical small mining town - wide streets and dusty LOL. The Leichardt river is bone dry ! The main tourism is mine tours, the WWII Era Underground Hospital, Gorges, Fossils,Royal Flying Doctor and School of the Air. We had a pretty slack time and rested up a lot. Had to book the car in for a log book service and had to wait a week to get it done, but what's the hurry heh. Once again the weather has been fantastic. Couldn't ask for any better !
Tomorrow we are heading further West towards the NT. Really looking forward to that.
