About Charters Towers...

Features of the local area:
As North Queensland's most significant Gold Field, Charters Towers is nationally recognised as a hertitage icon. A city built on gold, Charters Towers flourished during the bustling gold boom of the later 1800s. By the turn of the century it had become Queensland's second largest city, and has the honour of having one of the first regional stock exchanges built in 1888.

A golden city with a colourful past, the lively heritage bring Charters Towers to life, and makes this town a must see on an itinerary. Charters Towers lies 138 kilometres south-west of Townsville, on the Flinders Highway to Mount Isa, with a population of around 9000.
