Description

Pick up your Towers Hill brochure from the Visitor Information Centre and discover why this site has such special significance. You will see several species of macropods such as the Eastern Grey Kangaroo, the Whiptail and the Allied Rock Wallabies. Watch as the Wedge-tailed Eagles hunt their prey. This is also a favourite exercise track for locals. Look for the gold discovery monument at the base of the Hill.
Follow the road and uncover the stories from the informative storyboards along the way. There's Jupiter’s Luck, the Seismograph Station and Clark's Gold Mine. Wander through the Landcare rehabilitation project at the base of the Hill to the right. Discover the WWII bunkers, there are 30 of them in total. It is a short walk to a restored bunker which is sign-posted half way up the Hill on the right. On arrival at the summit, take time to enjoy the view as Charters Towers awakens. There are picnic tables available for your BYO breakfast. Another track at the summit leads off to the ruins of the Pyrites Works.
