Mount Isa is an exceptional destination for 4WD enthusiasts, boasting an array of trails suited to various skill levels. This region has something for everyone, such as historical landmarks, challenging routes, or breathtaking landscapes. Here are just a few of the most popular tracks in Mt Isa:
Exploring the Fountain Springs trail can be a day excursion or an extended camping adventure starting from Mt Isa. This circuit presents a captivating landscape featuring towering cliffs, mineral deposits, and exposed rock formations. Upon reaching Fountain Springs, you’ll encounter a permanent water source running through the quartzite fault line.
Located along Mount Frosty Trek, Rigby Falls poses a more challenging route due to its steep inclines, substantial rock formations, and rugged terrain. This trail is best suited for experienced 4WD drivers, and newcomers to the off-roading scene may find it slightly more time-consuming.
The path leading to the Paroo Waterhole initially offers a relatively straightforward 4WD experience that gradually grows more challenging as it spans the diverse terrain and approaches the waterhole itself. This serene oasis is conveniently situated near the stunning Paroo Range, should you wish to explore the area further.
