Packing your suitcase for Mount Isa

Main Image

With the summer school holidays just around the corner, you might have relatives coming up to Mount Isa, excited to chase the sun and experience Outback Queensland.

If your relatives are anything like mine, (and if it is a first time visit) you might get asked the question "What should I pack?"
As we are blessed with perfect sunny days and endless blue skies, you can leave your jackets at home!
Here is a very short (light-hearted) list of what to pack.
1. A water bottle
In the summer months especially, it is important to keep your fluids up (preferably clear ones!). Always carry a water bottle with you. Keep in mind that Outback at Isa and the Library have water dispensers for public use.
2. Hat
Baseball caps won't provide you with much sun protection, so make sure you have a wide brimmed hat. If you really want to fit in, invest in a Akubra! You can even rock a Stetson like our Member for Parliament, Robbie Katter.

3. Thongs

Most of the restaurants accept sandals and thongs as appropriate footwear. If you did want to go for a walk at Lake Moondarra or try out an exercise class at the PCYC community center, bring along your sneakers.

4. Sunnies

You don't have to impress the fashion police, just make sure you have something to protect your eyes.

5. Sunscreen

It would be best to stay indoors between 2pm and 4pm as this is often the hottest part of the day. There is still a lot to do in town. Outback at Isa have a fossil centre, art gallery, historical displays and cafe. The Library have a wide range of newspapers and magazines available. There are so many coffee shops in town, I will stay out of trouble and not promote just one.

6. Fly net

In the wet season, this becomes a necessity if you are out and about exploring. There are so many beautiful and interesting places around town. If you do have a fly net with you, you will be able to explore for longer.
