Isaac Towns

Welcome to the Isaac region

The Isaac encompasses 58, 709 square kilometres of fertile plains, rich soils, beaches and coal mines in the mineral rich Bowen Basin.

A drive through the countryside will introduce you to the brilliant hues and unusual shapes that create this picturesque local scenery.

On the coast, our quaint beach communities share their water with dugong sanctuaries, remote turtle nesting grounds and uninhabited islands.

Unbelievably this country remains pristine and relatively undeveloped.

Inland, golden sunflowers line the road with rust-red sorghum, buttery wheat, and creamy cotton crops, while majestic mountains and luscious lava plugs form marvellous backdrops on the horizon.

Find out about the many Isaac townships and some of the best things to do and see while you are there!
