  • The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Would be wonderful to see this operating occasionally. Good presentations.  more »
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the ghostly movie type presentations at the beginning and end of tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and explained all aspects of the operations from the past.  more »
  • Old industrial ruins a gold separation plant, in which above all stones were cracked and gemalen. The presentation is partly fallen out and well done. Hardly interesting for non-techies. However the history of charters does towers short.

  • If you're visiting Charters Towers (or even weren't planning to, but are interested in gold, who isn't?!...for better or worse - often for worse - its history is undeniably interesting), this is definitely worth a visit. We didn't know what to expect, but it was really good - we learnt heaps and it was interesting from start to finish. Malcolm, the guide had mining industry experience and a real knowledge of local history. He answered all of our questions well...and there were lots of questions! There were also some added creative touches in the tour which were great. Would recommend for all ages (except really young kids).
  • Fasinating old mine building got to the tourist centre to get visiting times
