Coming to all regions across Australia.

Step back in time to the days of the gold rush when you visit Centenary Park in Charters Towers. This popular park space features a gold discovery monument and a collection of sculptures created by Queensland Artist, Hugh Anderson. Make sure you take a picture of the Bat Statue created and designed as part of the 2013 LATTE Exhibition.

Centenary Park features an interesting history, with the area first announced for public purposes in 1888. In 1941 the last Gazette Order in Council set aside the area as a reserve for park purposes and named it “Sayers Park” after Robert John Sayers.

From the city’s very early days, Centenary Park was called “Harvey’s Reserve”, no doubt because Joseph Harvey, a local butcher, built and lived in “Tower Villa”, an old Queenslander style home that still faces out over the north east corner of the Reserve. During 1972 the Park was re-named “Centenary Oval” as part of the city’s centenary celebrations.

Centenary Park features picnic tables, toilets, gas barbecues, a children’s playground, liberty swing, lit walking tracks and is always cool and shady.
