Underground Hospital:
Uncover the story behind Australia’s first and only underground hospital. Learn of the extraordinary efforts made by local miners who volunteered their time during construction. Explore the four tunnels, fitted out to resemble the 1942 original layout.

Tent House:
Step inside the heritage-listed Tent House, a solution to the 1930s housing shortage in Mount Isa during the early mining boom years. Find out how a common tent was converted into a Tent House; an adaptation of materials to suit a hot, dry climate.

Beth Anderson Museum:
Browse the collection of medical equipment gathered by former hospital matron, Beth Anderson for proof of just how far medicine has advanced.
