The Charters Towers Overnight Gold and Ghost Tour
Charters Towers Overnight Tour

Once a rich gold field this town was called “the world”, everything you wanted or needed was right there. You will go on three tours on this adventure; the Venus Gold Battery, a tour of the town, then after dinner a ghost tour.

Take a step back in time and discover the enchanting town of Charters Towers, just an hour and half west of Townsville. Driving through the streets of Charters Towers is like viewing a living montage of Australian history and heritage. Gold was first discovered in the outback town of Charters Towers in 1872 by Aboriginal horse boy, Jupiter Mosman. It quickly became a booming gold rush town, with over 65 hotels and more than 25,000 people from all around the world moving to the region..

Charters Towers offers a number of magnificent heritage buildings which are testament to the prosperity of the early 1880s. The heritage listed Stock Exchange Arcade, The World Theatre, City Hall and the Post Office Tower will have you reaching for your camera. The cemetery, which was established in 1895, is the resting place of Jupiter Mosman.

We stay at the Royal Private Hotel, built in 1888 this hotel has had its bedrooms upgraded to include en suites with spa baths.
