You’re in luck if you want to channel your inner ghostbuster, see an apparition, or just get a better idea of what life was like during the Gold Rush period. Previous Charters Towers ghost tour participants have seen shadowy figures and even captured spectres on video. Some of the resident ghosts are friendly, according to tour guides, while others are not. Perhaps the unfriendly ghosts had to pay a high price for their greed during the Gold Rush?
At Townsville’s Billabong Sanctuary, get up close and personal with Australian wildlife including crocodiles and koalas in tropical North Queensland bushland.
