Our Tours

Longreach Cemetery Tour

Cemeteries are fascinating places to discover a town’s history.

Longreach Cemetery is the resting place for many pioneers and characters who made their mark on the past.

Some of their stories are legendary, some infamous, and many forgotten. Hear stories of the Outback - including the Longreach Cinderella, a cemetery outcast and an Aboriginal tracker who tracked Queensland’s last bushranger.

Join their tour guide on the amazing Longreach Cemetery Tour - a great experience for groups, visitors and those who love history.

Or, if you’re looking for an evening activity, come for the Longreach Cemetery Haunted History Tour – if you dare!

A portion of every ticket will be donated to the Longreach Archival and Historical Research Group Inc to go toward cemetery restoration.

Charters Towers Venus Gold Battery Tour

Located on the outskirts of Charters Towers, the Venus Gold Battery offers an insight into the amazing real life gold rush of the late nineteenth century.

The Battery is of national cultural significance. It is both the largest and the oldest of all surviving stamp batteries in Queensland.

Constructed in 1872, it was a public or custom mill in its prime, and became a State Battery in 1919 to provide ore crushing facilities for small mines after most other mills had closed. It ceased commercial operations in 1973 after a century of service.

Guided tours are available through this incredible historic site. One of the highlights is a fascinating film presentation that shows not only the process of extracting gold from ore, but also the story of the Battery's working life - and some of its ghosts.
