A family-friendly tour

Next year, Ghost Tours Pty Ltd will be the longest-running ghost tour company in mainland Australia for two decades.

This Halloween, Ghost Tours Pty Ltd invites you to discover ghostly gold rush town of Charters Towers.

This North Queensland town was built on metal, blood, sweat and toil.

A fortuitous bolt of lightning founded the Towers nearly 150 years ago. The discovery of gold led to a boom that saw Charters Towers become one of the largest towns in Queensland. Boasting its own stock exchange, theatre and courthouse, locals nicknamed it "the World". Only a 90-minute drive south-west of Townsville, Charters Towers, seems frozen in time with its quaint old shops, grand buildings and architecture.

But gold can make people do the most terrible things. The pursuit of wealth brought out the best and the worst of in those who came to seek their fortune. Many paid a high price for their greed. Their ghosts still linger in the old buildings of this timeless town – hear their sad and tragic stories from local Towers people and visit real haunted sites including - the Royal Hotel, the Mining Museum and the World Theatre.

This special 90 minute Halloween tour is suitable for all ages but parental guidance is recommended. It will run on the 25th, 27th, 28th and 31st of October 2017, from 7:00 pm.

Bookings are essential and tickets start from $9 per person. To secure your ticket, please click here.
