Things to Do in Charters Towers, Queensland

Who would have thought that in 1872 when Jupiter Mosman’s packhorse bolted during a ferocious storm that attempts to retrieve it would lead to the discovery of large amounts of gold around Charters Towers.

Charters Towers, simply brimming with historic goldrush fever, is a city closely in tune with its past, and which works hard to preserve and promote its history and heritage.

From its streetscapes and buildings, archives and museums, a visitor has plenty to see and do to immerse themselves in the spirit of “The World”, the name by which the city came to be known at the peak of the goldrush.

Today the city focuses on agriculture and education, with regular cattle sales, shows, fairs and competitions, and being home to three well-established and renowned boarding schools.

The Towers should be more than a town to overnight in when touring the Flinders Highway; it is a worthy destination in itself, and with Kernow offering a more luxurious and homely place to stay, it is somewhere to take yourself off the road, kick back and relax.
