Mt Isa mines, one of the world's richest copper, lead and zinc mines

The highway between Mt Isa and Cloncurry is one of Australia's most scenic.

Thanks for the photo's Phil. Really surprised to see tropical Townsville to be full of high rise flats/apartments. Rather detracts from the beauty of the area. Presumably everyone wants to live there?
