Mt Isa to Townsville
“It feels good to be lost in the right direction.” Mt Isa was fabulous – for one obvious reason – FAMILY! We absolutely loved every second of our stay, especially the hearty meals accompanied by quality refreshments and great yarns! We loved catching up with Michelle’s cousins and meeting their wives and children too, and we felt blessed that they were able to take out so much time from their busy schedules to spend time with us. Enough of the soppy stuff! During our time in ‘The Isa’, we were lucky to see all the best bits thanks to our knowledgeable tour guide. We had a half day personalised city highlights tour that included a picnic lunch at Lake Moondarra, viewing some of the mining operations (from a distance), and darting up to the lookout to admire the magnificent 360-degree views of the city + more. It is expected that every visitor to this great mining city MUST DO an underground mine tour, and who were we to argue? Although we weren’t allowed to take cameras or mobile phones on the tour, we were able to take a quick pic of us getting ready (check out the video to see the happy miners ready for action). Throughout our 4-night stay in Mt Isa we had countless discussions and debates regarding which way we should travel for our homeward journey. Uncle Glenn was adamant that we should take the Landsborough Highway and see Winton and Longreach and he continually offered (without request) limitless reams of historical facts and regularly reminded us of the rich landscape and fantastic outback sites we would experience travelling this route. Michelle, on the other hand, had her heart set on heading across the rugged outback and making a bee-line for Queensland’s east coast to see beaches and sand. Luckily, Michael didn’t care which way we went, and fortunately lives by the proverb ‘Happy wife, happy life’ …. hence the decision was made for us to journey the scenic 911km of the Flinders Highway from Mt Isa to Townsville. We stopped in the outback towns of Cloncurry, Julia Creek, Richmond, Hughenden and Charters Towers, then ended our adventures at Saunders Beach in Townsville (aahhh ….. a beach!) Below is a summary of the 5 days we spent travelling the Flinders Highway and briefly features each of the quaint outback towns we visited. CLONCURRY - Birthplace of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the destination of the first QANTAS flight: Only enough time for a brief stop at the Mary Kathleen Memorial Park and nearby visitor information centre. JULIA CREEK – The Friendly Town: We free camped on the banks of Julia Creek and spent hours roaming the Visitor Information Centre (fabulous). We even met a dunnart – a nocturnal, carnivorous marsupial (so cute!) RICHMOND – Fossil Capital of Australia: We visited Lake Fred Tritton and investigated the nearby bush tucker garden before calling in to Kronosaurus Korner to organise our fossil hunting permit. We then gathered some appropriate digging tools and headed out to the dedicated fossil hunting sites to try to find a fossil of our own. HUGHENDEN – Discover Dinosaurs: There was limited time available to explore Hughenden, so it was just a quick stop at a lovely rest area and then a slow drive through the main street of town …. Hughenden TICK! Maybe next time we pass through we will take the time to visit the Flinders Discovery Centre and meet “Hughie” a life-sized Muttaburrasaurus. CHARTERS TOWERS – The World: We ended up staying here for two nights – a need rather than a choice. Michael identified a small issue with the car! Yes …. the fluid viscous coupling had s#@t itself. A few phone calls later and we just had to wait for the replacement part to be transferred from Townsville. Our extended stay allowed us the opportunity to explore the gold mining and military history of this town. As we approached the city of Townsville we hurriedly punched in the address for the free camp at Saunders Beach and raced there without delay. Comments from fellow campers had insisted that you need to arrive early to secure a spot and we didn’t want to miss out. We knew our chances were slim due to our arrival coinciding with the first weekend of the school holidays and this location being a hotspot for backpackers. As we drove in to the small parking area we were thrilled to find there was just enough room for us to squeeze in …. YAY!!! Time to hit the road! The travel addicts
