With an estimated urban population of 18,588 as of June 2018, Mount Isa is the administrative, commercial and industrial centre for the state’s vast north-western region. Although situated in an arid area, the artificial Lake Moondarra 19 kilometres (12 mi) north of the city on the Leichhardt River provides both drinking water and an area for water sports, birdwatching and recreation. Locals often refer to Mount Isa as “The Isa”.
