Charters Towers Suburbs

Like other former mining towns, Charters Towers has several small suburbs. Moving clockwise from the north of Charters Towers central there are Richmond Hill, Queenton, Millchester and Mosman Park. To the west of the city centre there are Towers Hill, Alabama Hill and Grand Secret, but these have been overlain by the recently named Lissner (2001) which also includes part of the central area if Australian Bureau of Statistics boundaries are accounted for.

According to the Queensland place names register, the names and boundaries of the suburbs were formalised as recently as 2001.
