Old World Horse Carriage.
On the outskirts of the town is The Venus Battery, an
old crushing mill. Guided tours are available daily. The
Miners Cottage is another interesting site that has been
completely refurbished to the original, where you can
also pan for gold. Tower Hill Lookout is a great spot to
oversee the town, and in the evenings there, you can
watch a movie entitled Ghosts After Dark in the
Ampitheatre. In town The Heritage Walk is a trip into the
past as you gaze at the wonderful architecture, all
within a square mile in the town. Of course we can still
find interesting things to see including The World
Theatre, The Museum and also The Historic Ambulance
Centre.Everything taken into consideration, probably one
of the most fascinating towns anywhere on earth.
Charters Towers is a gem, and only a couple of hours
drive West of Townsville. The City Centre is a step back
in the past. Historical architecture is something this
place has in abundance. You can still feel the atmosphere
from those long gone gold rush years of the 1800's. Lissner Park is a haven for the local bat population.
