Top Attractions within Charters Towers

Charters Towers was founded as a town in the 1870s. Charters Towers is a great tourist attraction to visit in a hire car today, as the city is perfectly showing the real Australian outback lifestyle. Visitors who come to Charters Towers that plan walking tours in the city will surely understand why and will remain forever charmed by the beauty of this city. Charters Towers is the best location for outdoor activities and camping experiences.

The city's location is mildly elevated at about 300 meters above sea-level. Even though only slightly elevated, the effect in its humidity (decreases) and temperature (increases) variations are very noticeable. And it acquires its supply of water from the nearby Burdekin River.

Some of the notable people who lived in Charters Towers are William Edward Harney —an Australian writer, Cecil Aynsley —a member of the Queensland Rugby League team of the century, Andrew Symonds —an Australian Test cricketer, and Wilhelm Iwan —who lived in Charter Towers for nine years and authored a book describing his experiences in the place.

Charters Towers Folk Museum is located at Mosman Street (at the corner of Mary Street). The museum takes pride in it large collection of photographs, equipments, and other memorabilia that depicts Charter Towers' golden past. There are also volunteers and staff who are wholeheartedly willing to share their unique stories and to demonstrate some of the equipments which are housed in the BurnsPhilip building (The building was built in 1888!). And the favorite among the exhibits is the flying fox (or the Lampson Aerial Cash System from the Pollards building.)

Charter Towers also has a military history (from the Boer War to the Vietnam conflict) housed in the Charles Wallace Military Display. You'll also have a chance to see one of the many heart-melting pieces from the World War I —a pair of half-knitted socks abandoned when a mother received news that her son has been killed. (You'll see them exactly as she left them 100 years ago!)
Lissner Park is located in Deane Street, Lissner Park is only one of the many beautiful parks in Charters Towers. The park was named after Isidor Siegfried Lissner (he arrived in Charters Towers in 1873) who developed a financial empire due to mining and commercial interests. Due to his keen interest in community affairs, he pushed for the establishment of sporting facilities and public services (and Lissner Park is included in these establishments).
The park is a cozy place for a picnic. Its 7-hectare area covers the Boer War Kiosk, the Band Rotunda, children's playground, World War One guns, Federation Fountain, memorials to William Hann and pioneer Jupiter Mossman, and a duck pond. The park is also well lit thus making it another beautiful place for evening picnics! And who said that picnic is only fun during the day?!

The Stock Exchange Building is one of the oldest and most impressive buildings in this city to visit. The Stock Exchange Building has been one of the major attractions in Charters Towers starting in the 1890s.

The Venus Gold Battery is the place in which gold was processed between 1872 and 1972. Nowadays, the location is considered to be defying for the specific of Charters Towers, being kept almost intact and unchanged over the years.

Charters Towers Courthouse is another building in this Australian city that should be included in all tourist visits. The building is so impressive, as it has pretty much remained the same since its construction ended in 1886. The courthouse building remains representative for the architectural style of the 1880s. Visit the Charters Towers Courthouse in a hire car which currently is included in the Queensland Heritage Register. The City Hall building, as well as the Post Office, are also worth being visited.

The Charters Towers Museum, also known under the name of Zara Clack Museum, exhibits numerous representative collections for the city's history.
