Stopped off for smoko at a rest area along the road then hit Cloncurry in time for a late lunch. We stayed at the van park in town which is an older park but it was pretty empty and we could take our pick of the sites.
After a break we went down town to get some groceries and went in to Foodworks where the prices around double what we were used to. Later on we were told by the worker at the van park that there was a Woolworths in town - oh well that's life!
We went for a walk across the road to the Mary Kathleen museum. Mary K was a uranium mine down the road from the Curry towards Mt Isa back in the 50's and 60's. They had a fair bit of the history on the mine and also some info on Burke & Wills who's expedition took them close to the town.
