Towers Hill lookout

Saturday 22/9/12 we visited Towers Hill Lookout and did some of the walking tracks there. We Saw the remains of several gold mines and there are lots of mine shafts but they are all fenced off so you can't hurt yourself. There are also world war two bunkers on the hill which you can visit and a seismagraph station. After this we went to the Miners Cottage in the middle of charters towers and watched a demonstration on panning for gold.
Then we visted the antique fair that was being held as part of their centenary celebrations and then home for lunch, after we visited the weir where Stephen caught a fish (on Thursday morning) called a grunter or black bream which he brought home and we are going to bbq soon.
