Charters Towers

"Gold, Ghosts and Guided-tours!"

Affectionately known as ‘The World,’ Charters Towers is arguably one of the most beautiful inland towns in Queensland, bursting with history, heritage and resplendent architecture, being formed during the booming gold rush of the 1880s. Charters Towers offers a range of spell-binding tours, including the world-famous Texas Longhorn Safaris, and legendary Ghosts of Gold Tours that regal audiences with tales of crime, murder, and mystery. While you’re here also check out the Venus Battery, along with the stunning Burdekin River and Dam, Australia’s largest reservoir of water!
