Mt Isa City Council

From humble origins 90 years ago, Mount Isa has grown into a progressive city in the centre of Queensland’s desert heart, one of many of Mount Isa’s unique qualities. Located in prime cattle country, the city has enjoyed longevity unheard of when it comes to typical mining communities. Having celebrated its 90th birthday in 2013, the Isa is still going strong, still growing and attracting visitors to experience a true icon in the outback of Australia. In fact, it is widely considered that only once you visit the Isa do you become a ‘real’ Aussie.

Today, Mount Isa City Council celebrates a wealth of talent, success and creativity in Mount Isa’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community which includes professionals, educators, artists, musicians, tradespeople, health workers, business owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders and many other passionate, dedicated and successful people.

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities include Traditional Custodians, who represent the original Aboriginal inhabitants of the area, as well as a diversity of Elders and people who live and work in the City.
