Mount Isa to Lawn Hill

We had a couple of nights in a caravan park in Mount Isa - just enough time to catch up on washing, shopping at a real supermarket and for Dazz & Dad to do an underground mine tour. Of course there were also a few trips up to the lookout at various times of the day and night for photos of the town and mine.

We're expanding our knowledge of birds as we travel west and north. Some of the photos aren't great though - it's so hard to get the birds to sit still in the sun, but with the sun behind the camera, and close enough so they don't have to be cropped too severely! Here are some from our overnight camp north of Cloncurry. There will be lots more from Lawn Hill when I catch up on those photos.

Out here dots on maps don't always mean towns, but there is usually fuel every 200-300 kms. The Burke & Wills Roadhouse is halfway between Cloncurry and Normanton, and the junction where we turned west to go out to Gregory Downs and Lawn Hill.
