The centre is located at 74 Mosman Street, which is at the top of Gill Street, facing the T-intersection.  The centre holds a wealth of knowledge on Charters Towers and the regional and surrounding outback towns.  This extensive range of information includes the Charters Towers Region, Townsville and Magnetic Island and the themed driving routes of The Great Inland Way, Overlander's Way, The Great Tropical Drive, The Matilda Highway and The Savannah Way.  Public internet facilities and a booking service for local tours and attractions is also available.

The centre is home to a dedicated team of local volunteers.  Their general knowledge of Charters Towers, as well as being part of the town's history, plays a big part towards the centre's unique and friendly experience for visitors.

The centre occupies a beautifully restored heritage building that has an adjoining Orientation Room.  Here visitors get their first taste of the 'ghosts of gold' Heritage Trail, watching the Orientation Film that explains how "The World" came to Charters Towers, following the discovery of gold.  Visitors can take a virtual tour of the City and witness the change from a past era.

Come in and meet a'll be glad you did!
