  • 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.

There were also some added creative touches in the tour which were great. Would recommend for all ages (except really young kids).
