John Flynn Place
Cloncurry, the friendly heart of the Great North West, is a fascinating outback Queensland town.
The main industries in the region are mining and cattle. In fact, the town was built on its mining riches. The average annual rainfall is 500mm. Cloncurry is famed as one of the hottest spots in Australia.
Visit the John Flynn Place and learn about the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Browse through the art gallery, stroll around the museum and walk through the gardens. See the saleyards - the largest in north west Queensland. Then drive out to see the Burke and Wills memorial cairn, situated 43km west of Cloncurry on the banks of the Corella River.
Remember Mary Kathleen, the uranium mine and town? Visit the memorial park in Cloncurry where this unique chapter of North Queensland history has been preserved. The complex also has a rock and mineral display which is ranked by experts as one of the most comprehensive displays in Australia.
