Cloncurry

The town of Cloncurry was established on rich mining and pastoral industries. Copper and gold were discovered in the late 1860’s drawing hundreds of miners, including Chinese and Afghans who provided camel transport for the industries.

Cloncurry is the birth place of the Royal Flying Doctor Service and was the destination of the first Qantas flight. The town provides many modern amenities for business and tourism, a great spot to spend a day or two!
