Discover Ravenswood, an old gold mining settlement, set amongst the rolling hills of the outback. Ravenswood is a small township approximately 130km south-west of Townsville and 90km north-east of Charters Towers and is a living tribute to the history and heritage of western Queensland. Mullock heaps, tall chimneys, poppet heads and discarded mine machinery pepper the countryside, reminiscent of the town’s century-old glory.
Beautifully restored hotels and public buildings will give you a glimpse of what the town was once like. Take the time to stop and explore because there’s more to this historic town than you would expect and the locals are only too happy to tell you all about it.
