Information

Ravenswood A once-prosperous gold mining boomtown now almost a ghost town. Located 1459 km northwest of Brisbane and 89 km east of Charters Towers, Ravenswood was once a thriving gold mining town. Today it is almost a ghost town with a population of around 100 who service the surrounding area and cater for the growing tourism.Many original buildings in Ravenswood still operate today, including the general store, a church with its own special ghost story, private miners’ cottages and the school buildings, to name a few. There are a number of short distance walking trails with interpretive signs throughout the township. Make sure you collect a copy of the trails’ map from the Courthouse or Thorp’s building and discover some amazing sites and stories this region holds, both natural and man-made, as well as stories of the life and times around this incredible heritage-listed township. Both pubs, caravan park and the Ravenswood Reserve (Showground) offer wonderful accommodation facilities - you'd be crazy not to spend more time exploring this unique town!
