We left Darwin for the last time to head towards the east coast. First stop was Gorrie where we camped at a World War 2 abandoned air strip. Then we went on to Borroloola and started driving on the shortcut to Cairns which was a very rough gravel road, but the road too rough so we turned around and went the long way. Next stop was Camooweal where we stayed at a free camp beside a river. After Camooweal we drove to Mount Isa. We walked up a very steep hill and up the top was a lookout where you can see all of Mount Isa! Mount Isa is well known for mining, because they mine lots of copper, zinc, led and silver. After seeing Mount Isa we went to Cloncurry. In Cloncurry we went to the RFDS (Royal Flying Doctor Service) museum. The RFDS fly to injured people where big planes can't get to. After the museum we went to the original QANTAS hangar which was the destination of the first QANTAS flight from longreach.
