Historic Buildings in Charters Towers

We slept in today until 6.30am!!! but we did have a coffee in bed before we got out and had breakfast outside! After tinkering with the bikes and changing my back wheel to the one we have been carrying since Longreach we went into town to have a quick look - it is a very busy town and there are cars going everywhere - not only does Queensland have no regulations on anything they also don't have any give way or stop signs and I know the road rules are to give way to everything on your right should apply if there are no give way or stop signs but here in Queensland I think it is first there first to go!!! Hell is was very dangerous riding in the town centre. But I did manage to take photos of some of the historic places.

We took the above photo for you Ray so you would remember the Chinese 'All you can eat' place!

Below are 2 photos of inside this stock exchange building

at this intersection there are no give way or stop signs! we are looking down on Gill Street which is the main shopping drag.
Above is a lovely old rotunda is Lissner park.

  1. You are game slinging off at Bendigo people. I thought all our residents were nice people!
    Just goes to show that you get redneck, racist, arrogant prats everywhere! (probably Liberal/National voters. Bet they wouldn't like Julia being PM. Hope you didn't mention our names to them. Keep enjoying life. Cheers. Leanne
