Mount Isa Suburbs

Metropolitan Mount Isa has, from west to east, the mine leasehold, the railway line, four suburbs between the railway line and the Leichhardt River (both run north-south), the city centre on the east bank of the river and the majority of metropolitan suburbs spreading eastwards.

Mount Isa experienced very rapid growth between 1950 and 1970, from about 6000 to 25,000 people, and several eastern suburbs emerged during these years. Several older suburbs have fewer than 1000 people.
