Charters Towers Venus Gold Battery History Tour
Join us on a 75 minute Guided Tour through one of Australia's last standing Gold Stamp Batteries. Hear how they extracted Gold from the ore, and much more!
The Venus Battery is a remarkable survivor of the period of Charters Towers history as a gold mining and processing area.
The Battery was opened in July 1872, the same year that gold was discovered in Charters Towers. It was the first custom mill to be operated on behalf of the public in Charters Towers.
By 1919, most of the mines had closed in the area and the Mines Department purchased the mill. This was to ensure that there would be at least one operating mill in the area for gold producing mines in North Queensland.
Extensive restoration work has been carried out and now the mill operates as a tourist attraction.
Suitable for all ages. A great experience for groups, visitors and those who love history…

Enjoyed having a look around also hearing all the history of the jail. But it was also borning. Walking through the cells and the back road ok but would have been nice to see more. Even having better touches would help
