A lovely outback change was a weekend away in the Isa. There was lots of dust, lovely hot dry temperatures [much more comfortable than the humidity of the coast] & a touch of glamour of the Casa Grande Ball.
The ball is held at Casa Grande, a Spanish Mission style building, built in 1949 for the MIM mine manager.
Queen Elizabeth stayed at Casa Grande in a redecorated and refurnished suite
when she visited the town in 1970.
