The Queensland Government and the Charters Towers Regional Council recently completed a joint initiative, the Towers Hill Walking Track. In June 2014 the walking track was built to connect the Charters Towers City to the iconic towers hill, featuring an 800 metre path and a recycled-plastic boardwalk. A covered area, seating, solar lighting and drinking fountains completed the functional plans.

The features on the track reflect the councils commitment to environmental and financial sustainability within the local community. The recycled-plastic and other low-maintenance materials combined with climate appropriate vegetation has created a versatile, environmentally friendly track for residents and visitors alike to enjoy
