Welcome to Cloncurry
The ‘Curry’ is renowned as the birthplace of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and John Flynn Place is a must-see museum celebrating Dr Flynn’s work setting up this invaluable outback service. It's the only town of any real size between Charters Towers and Mt Isa. Built upon the traditional lands of the Mayi-Thanurti and Kalkadoon Aboriginal people, Cloncurry became, in the 19th century, the largest producer of copper in the British Empire. Today it’s a busy pastoral centre with a reinvigorated mining industry.
There's information and historical displays at Cloncurry Unearthed in the Mary Kathleen Memorial Park.
