Charters Towers, north eastern Queensland, Australia, in the upper Burdekin River basin. Charters Towers is known mostly for its heritage and gold mining history. Charters Towers has a large number of elegant and historically significant buildings most of which are located on Gill and Mosman Streets. Charters Towers financial district is in Gill Street. Gill St is far more the commercial heart of Charters Towers. One of Gill Street's more interesting buildings is the Post Office of the year 1892, with a huge clock tower that dominates the town. The clock was added to the building in 1898 after being imported from England. Also in Gill Street is the former Bank of New South Wales of the year 1880, which is a near perfect example of the Classical Revival style of architecture which was all the rage at the time. One of the most interesting buildings in Charters Towers can be found in Mosman Street, known as the Zara Clark museum, a national trust owned and run centre. It has an interesting collection of local Charters Towers memorabilia. So much to see and do in our country town in the outback of Australia.
