Cloncurry - Outback QLD - Queensland

Celebrate Outback life the true Aussie way in Cloncurry or the 'Curry' as it is affectionately referred to by locals. Resting on the intersection of the Matilda Highway and Overlander's Way (Flinders Highway), Cloncurry is approximately 120 kilometres east of Mount Isa and 400 kilometres south of the Gulf of Carpentaria. As the birthplace of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the destination of the first Qantas flight this country town has earned its right in declaring to have inspired the shaping of Australia's individuality.

Take in the view of Cloncurry and its surrounding harsh landscape from the lookout at the Mary Kathleen Memorial Park Complex with covered BBQ area and playground for the little ones. There is an outdoor mine with a display of the equipment used and a visit to the museum to view the gem and mineral collection and their prized possession- Burke's water bottle, is a must.

The Cloncurry Lookout will give visitors a picturesque view of the town and Cloncurry River and if travel further on to Chinaman Creek Dam you can watch stunning colours of Mt Leviathan at sunset.
