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.
