Charters Towers

A city built on gold, Charters Towers flourished during the bustling gold boom of the late 1800s and by the turn of the century it had earned the distinction of Queensland's second largest city and the honour of having one of the first few regional Stock Exchanges built in 1888. For the visitor wishing to 'dig' further into Charters Towers' mining past, the Ghosts of Gold Heritage Trail is highly recommended. The self guided trail begins at the Visitor Information Centre with an Orientation Film and then follows on to the Stock Exchange. Next make your way to the Venus Battery, the largest surviving battery relic. Complete your trail at Towers Hill, with a short drive or hike to the top giving panoramic views of the city. An evening screening of the film 'Ghosts After Dark' in the amphitheatre rounds off your Trail. Other points of interest include the two cemeteries, Historic Ambulance Centre and the Charters Towers Folk Museum. The historic World Theatre is an architectural wonder that combines the past and the present or why not play a game of billiards on the original 100 year old tables at the Civic Club. If you are more of an outdoors type, then the Charters Towers region, offers a variety of recreational activities. Five self drive tours throughout the region afford excellent opportunities as well. A golden city with a colourful past, the lively heritage brings Charters Towers to life, and makes this town a must see on any itinerary.
