Mt Isa township from the lookout
Thursday saw us leaving our ideal spot and making a big trip up the road. We camped overnight at a free camping area at a WWII Air Strip. We arrived at lunch time and settled in at by about 4pm the place was packed with Caravans, motorhomes and anything inbetween. We met quite a few people during happy hour. The night was absolutely freezing. Two couples we have met since in Mt Isa, a couple from Busselton WA and another couple from Swan Hill. Thursday we drove a whole 50kms to Mt Isa and parked just out of town, we took Jimny out of the back and drove into town to check out the accommodation. We managed to get a lovely spot in the Copper City Riverside Caravan Park. We parked in an area normally used by the coaches and have a lovely view of the pool and with the camp kitchen. Great for havachat as he talks to everyone that comes in to cook their meals. Hey it gives me a break!!!
