The Location
Mount Isa is a unique and progressive city nestled among the splendour of the Selwyn Ranges in the heart of North West Queensland. Once a raw frontier town built around the vast mineral resources, Mount Isa has grown into a thriving industrial and commercial centre renowned for its friendly and welcoming nature.

Affectionately known as the ‘oasis of the outback,' Mount Isa represents over 50 nationalities which give the city a unique cosmopolitan flavour. People enjoy living in this modern community, with restaurants, excellent health care, shopping, churches, clubs, service clubs and social activities. You will love the yearly carnival of festivities and celebrations.

Camping out under the stars is a particularly breath-taking experience given the lack of light pollution or you could just jump in the four wheel drive, explore the outback and do a bit of fishing. If you’re feeling like a weekend escape to the big city or further afield, you can easily reach Brisbane and Townsville in 1 - 2 hours flight. Mount Isa is a great place to live and work!
