Product Description

Charters Towers Montage 680x250

Charters Towers is haunted by the ghosts of gold – this North Queensland town was built on this metal, blood, sweat and toil.

A fortuitous bolt of lightning founded the Towers nearly 150 years ago. The discovery of gold led to a boom that saw Charters Towers become one of the largest town’s in Queensland. Boasting its own stock exchange, theatre and courthouse, locals nicknamed it “the World”. Only a 90 minute drive south-west of Townsville, Charters Towers, seems frozen in time with its quaint old shops, grand buildings and architecture.

Gold can make people do the most terrible things. The pursuit of wealth brought out the best and the worst of in those who came to seek their fortune.  Many paid a high price for their greed. Their ghosts still linger in the old buildings of this timeless town – hear their sad and tragic stories.

Meet at the Charters Towers Visitor Information Centre, to undertake this Ghost Tour with a local historian. Walk the streets of the ghostly gold rush town of Charters Towers, hear real ghost stories from local Towers people and visit real haunted sites including – the Royal Hotel, the Mining Museum and the World Theatre.

This 90 minute walking tour is suitable for all ages, but parental guidance is recommended.
