Adels Grove has been on my to do list ever since I arrived in Mount Isa at the start of 2016. But for one reason or another, I'd never found the time to go there. I thought I might have missed my chance when the main building was destroyed by fire last year but it was miraculously kept open and a rebuild commenced. It has always been a popular spot and even more so since Chris Hemsworth lent his star quality to a tourist ad filmed there which featured in the US Superbowl in 2018.
