Fountain Springs is a popular overnighter because it has good amenities and is exactly half way between Mt Isa and The Curry.
Off-road enthusiasts, this one is for you. Take to the dirt tracks through the picturesque Fountain Range until you arrive at a local hidden gem – Fountain Springs. It boasts a beauty of a permanent deep waterhole with plenty of wildlife to spot while you're parked. Who said camping was roughing it? You'll find this local favourite 60 kilometres east of Mount Isa, off the Overlander's Way. If you don't plan on staying overnight, it makes for great day trip from Mount Isa or Cloncurry so you can tackle these guides – 48 hours in Mount Isa, 48 hours in Cloncurry and 15 things you didn't know about Cloncurry.

While you are in this area, why not check out the old uranium mining township of Mary Kathleen, not far away.
