Outback at Isa
Plan a day at Outback at Isa to learn all about the region’s history, geography and mining industry while holidaying on flights to Mt Isa. There are several attractions located within Outback at Isa, and together, they give a well-rounded insight into Outback Queensland.

Royal Flying Doctor Service Visitor Centre
The Royal Flying Doctor Service is a medical organisation that has been operating in rural Australia since 1928. It began in the nearby Queensland town of Cloncurry, and there are now more than 50 RFDS bases and visitor centres across the country. One is located right across the Leichhardt River from Mt Isa’s CBD, and you can head there to learn more about the organisation while visiting Outback Queensland on cheap flights to Mt Isa. Wander through a series of displays about the RFDS, see a documentary to learn the service’s history, and get a look at some of the planes.
Mt Isa Lookout
Take in one of the region’s best views at Mt Isa Lookout just outside the CBD. The hilltop viewpoint can be reached in about 30 minutes from the city centre on foot. Visitors who head to the Mt Isa Lookout will be treated to an impressive 360° view over the city and Outback peaks in the distance. Visit the lookout at sunset while you’re holidaying on return flights to Mt Isa to see an orange sky over the city and watch as the lights of Mt Isa and the nearby mines turn on for the night.
