Mt Isa 29 June

We drove into Mt Isa after stopping at McKinlay where Crocodile Dundee was filmed at the Walkabout Creek Hotel. We also had to stop and help some old people on the side of the road when their caravan axle broke. Mt Isa is where we stopped for a resupply and we finally have Wi-Fi! Mt Isa was started about 90 years ago as a mining town, and they still mine 8 types of ore, including lead, copper and silver. It is surrounded by big red hills (probably full of ore) because the mine is right in the middle of town! Which I know in SimCity causes a lot of pollution.
