The Miner's Cottage is a mini museum that offers an experience set back in time and is overflowing with local history and stories. The cottage has been refurbished and decorated to show how the house would have looked at the start of the 20th century. The collection of 19th century artefacts is fascinating.


Try your hand at Gold Panning which is available with entry into The Miners Cottage, a privately owned interpretive centre. The owner Alan Silverwood is a retired prospector with many years of mineral exploration experience. Alan moved to Charters Towers in the 1990's and was responsible for setting out some of the regions mine projects. He now enjoys passing on his knowledge and "hands-on" skills to interested visitors.
