Sahara's Golden Story
ADVANCED CARE PARAMEDIC
I was born in Zimbabwe and migrated to Australia to attend university and have since lived in some of Australia’s most well-known and beautiful destinations – Launceston, Bryon Bay, Gold Coast.
But it was Charters Towers that stopped me in my tracks. As soon as I drove over the Burdekin River I knew I was home. I just love it. I have since bought my own home on 20 acres and am living my dream of owning and training horses.
sophisticated country charm
Camping, BBQ picnics on the river, walks up Towers Hill or daytrips to surrounding townships is where the relaxed Charters Towers way of life really shines.
But if shopping and catching up with mates is more your style, you’ll find a range of boutique shopping along the grand heritage streetscape.
CATCHING UP WITH MATES
The pub and café culture scene is flourishing too with new and updated venues blending in beautifully with the traditional favourites. You can even catch the latest movies at the legendary Tors Drive-in.
We make our own fun in the Country
Events in the country have their own spirit and charm. Charters Towers holds a wide range of community, cultural and sporting events along with regular country markets every year to bring families and friends together from across the region and further afield.
In 2022, Charters Towers will celebrate 150 years since the declaration of the Goldfields.
