Mount Isa

A growing range of health care courses are available from JCU’s Centre for Rural and Remote Health (CRRH), creating access to health education for the remote west region of Queensland.

The JCU Centre for Rural and Remote Health (CRRH) Mount Isa campus has been named Murtupuni (pronounced Mer-da-pun-ni), which means to “come together, gather together” in the Kalkadoon language.

Established as a centre for population health, education and research in 1997, the CRRH facilitates research and education for rural, remote and Indigenous health issues. The Centre includes lecture rooms, research facilities, video conferencing facilities, computer laboratory, procedural skills laboratory and a growing health services library.

Attractions include the World Heritage listed Riversleigh Fossil area and beautiful Lawn Hill Gorge, fossicking for minerals and gems, barramundi fishing, camel racing, the Outback at Isa Centre, the John Midlin Mining Display Centre, the Frank Aston Rotary Museum, and the Royal Flying Doctor Centre, to name just a few.
