Mount Isa Airport Surrounded by the beautiful Selwyn Ranges, Mount Isa is the mining, industrial and commercial capital of Northwest Queensland, Australia. This picture beside the Riversleigh Fossil Centre, commemorates Miners who suffered and endured the hardships from mining in the early days. The airport is located 7.5km from the town centre.

A thriving inland city set amidst landscapes of the Selwyn Ranges, Mount Isa offers visitors a wide variety of things to see and do. From Australia's ancient past rebuilt at the multi-award-winning Riversleigh Fossil Museum (just one of the attractions at the new AUD12 million Outback at Isa Complex) to one of the world's most modern mining operations at the popular Mount Isa Mines, the city's attractions are numerous. Other popular venues and activities include Hard Times Mine, Sir James Foots Gallery, Outback Park, Royal Flying Doctor Service Base, School of the Air, National Trust Tent House, Underground Hospital and Beth Anderson Museum and fishing for barramundi at Lake Moondarra.

Mount Isa's existence and its main financial base is the huge Mount Isa Mine, the world's largest single producer of copper, silver, lead and zinc. In 1923, John Campbell Miles found a silver-lead ore outcrop and sent a sample to Cloncurry to be assessed. Miles pegged two leases and soon 500 were filled. Mount Isa Mines took over operations in 1924. This rich deposit is still producing high volumes of ore and is classed as one of the world's great mines.

Considered by many as the capital of north-west Queensland, Mount Isa also boasts a great range of shopping facilities. 'The Isa' as it is know by locals, is also an ideal place to have mechanical repairs attended to and to stock up on supplies.
