Instagram post 17937194650757601 Check out the newest addition at Outback At Isa - a group of large Dromornithids (droe-morn-ith-ids) are ready to greet you! 

Also known as 'thunder birds' or 'demon ducks' these flightless birds were once part of Australia's megafauna and reached three metres tall.

Outback at Isa is one not to miss! Not only can you take a photo with the new Dromornithids but you'll also find the Mount Isa Visitor Information Centre, Hard Times Mine Underground Tour, Isa Experience and Outback Park, the Mount Isa Regional Art Gallery, Riversleigh Fossil Discovery Centre and the Outback at Isa Cafe.
