  • To get an overview of the scale of Mount Isa one of the best vantage points would be from the John Campbell Miles Memorial Lookout, often referred to as the City Lookout. From here you get a 360 degree view. Great photo ops. Maybe a selfie at the World Traveler signpost.
  • Absolutely fabulous view. It is not like other city night views with those chimneys imparting a special sense of aesthetics.
  • Very cool lookout over Mt. Isa. An easy walk up to the top or a drive if you must...either way, very worth it when you get to the top! If you decide to go at night, the mine lights up like an ocean liner too. Definitely recommended 👍🏼👍🏼
  • Beautiful. Must go during evenings for sunset and city lights.!
  • Lovely view over the town and mine. Amazing spot to watch the lightening and storms roll past.
