Awesome landscape and history

Worth a look around, reading the history of the area surrounded by the vivid colors of the landscape. Worth the drive around. Sunset would be great from the lookout

Great example of past works and the determination of many thousands of workers. A look into the past and the remnants of a lifestyle gone by the wayside.

First time I in Australia I got to see just how many stars actually exist in the night sky!
Truly breath taking. With no light from nearby towns or cities the sky is ablaze with a zillion stars. To visit the caves, which are excellent, we contacted the local guide and although we were the only visitors he still took us through, magical. The old Copper works are fascinating including the one chimney with a split due to a lightning strike. Small observatory popular with amateur astronomers (not surprising). There was also a private museum of old and military vehicles. The owner was an elderly gentleman, it may not be there anymore. Local Motel was basic but ok. Don't expect much its a small town but well worth the dirt drive if you love old world Australia, Caves, stars and quiet. I loved it.

Walking around the Smelter site and viewing areas gives a good idea of how important this was to the early mining days in the North. The interpretive signs are interesting, and the vast site indicates the large number of workers that were needed to keep the mostly manual operation of the smelter going.
A visit to the Hub in the centre of Chillagoe is a good way to find out more about the Smelter and its history and importance to mining in the North.

While in town it’s worth a look, on the outskirts via a dirt road, good scenic views from atop the hill.

Not really somewhere that you can walk right up to

If you are out Chilligoe way then you have to visit here as this is why Chilligoe originated.
You view from afar (nice pics).
Not somewhere you would spend more than half an hour at.

Free Self Guided Walk Around the Chillagoe Smelters
jul de 2019
Given that Chillagoe was initially discovered as a mining town, a visit to their smelters is a non brainer to get an idea of the towns history.

In years gone by you were able to drive into the car park at the base of the smelters. This was good in the sense that you were able to get closer to the smelters. However, on the negative side there was no information available to show you what you were actually looking at it. A modern visit to these smelters now consists of a free self guided walk (~500m) which has various viewpoints over the now extinct mining operation, accompanied by generous information boards that run through its history.

The smelters are located maybe 2km outside of town and you can see the stacks from the Main Street.

It was very interesting to read all the culture and history of the area. The mining story was interesting in how it provided employment for North Queensland.
