Living in Charters Towers
Take a step back in time and discover the enchanting outback town of Charters Towers, just an hour and a half west of Townsville. Driving through the streets of Charters Towers is like viewing a living montage of Australian history and heritage. From a chance discovery in 1871, Charters Towers became a gold rush town and quickly grew to become the second largest town in Queensland. Today, the pace is a little less hectic although the magnificent heritage buildings are testament to the prosperity of years past. Visit the iconic drive-in cinema for flicks under the stars, pan for gold at the Miners Cottage, take in the views from Towers Hill lookout or enjoy a true outback encounter at Texas Longhorn Wagon Tours. With tall chimneys, poppet heads and discarded mine machinery, the town is a living tribute to the history of western Queensland! CLICK HERE for more information on what Charters Towers has to offer.
