Towers Hill Master Plan

Project overview

Towers Hill is an iconic natural beauty in the Charters Towers Region. It’s a treasure-trove of remnants and relics of the Region’s rich goldrush heritage and involvement in the second World War, tastefully complemented by innovative and exciting tourism experiences which bring them and surrounding views to life.

Council has developed this draft Towers Hill Master Plan to better understand the opportunities and considerations of this much loved landmark to help our community prosper, to increase visitor attraction, celebrate its historical significance and enable more active and passive land uses in a financially sustainable manner.
